A few months ago, someone asked on Quora: “Why must at least one letter to the editor in every magazine contain the word kudos?”
Forbes managing editor Bruce Upbin replied:
I don’t think it is a must. The most frequently appearing phrases in our letters from readers are:
“Shame on you”
“I expected more from you”
“We expect this error/assertion/omission/confusion to be corrected ASAP”
“I’ve been a subscriber for XX years…until now”
“What a shoddy piece of work that article was”
but kudos to you for asking the question.
Any other popular phrases come your way?
