So it’s a good thing that he corrected OP and provided a better word to use… assuming op wants to improve

I was able to decipher the meaning, so communication occurred. Were they being helpful or just correct? Intent matters.

Intent matters to a degree, but the commenter wasn’t particularly rude or mean about the mistake and their comment may help OP improve their English. You’re acting like their intent was to embarrass or be rude to OP but I disagree that’s the case and feel your knee-jerk defense of OP’s language skills is unwarranted

They could’ve just said “haha idiot you used ‘exposed’ wrong” but instead they basically explained why ‘exposed’ was flawed and suggested an alternative

I disagree that my considering the circumstances of OP’s word choice might be due to being a speaker of English as a second language was a “knee jerk” reaction. I put forth a possibility to consider.

I mean - I don’t think you spent too long musing over your comment and wondering if you should make it, I’m not sure why it wouldn’t be knee-jerk
