Incorrect examples

Would be helpful to not include the incorrect forms in the examples in the lower part of the page: "C'est qui que tu as rencontré?" Otherwise, feels like it's reinforcing incorrect options.

This question relates to:
French lesson "Questions: Qui / qui est-ce que = Whom ?"

Bonjour Barb, If I am understanding your concern correctly, it appears in the example that the usage depicted might possibly be heard at times, hence it is good to know about it; however, it is an incorrect form usage, which is also good to know. I do fully understand the phrase that not all French people who are native speakers use the language correctly. This also holds true for native English speakers who do not use the language correctly; however, it is good to know and be able to recognize incorrect speech, at least in my opinion. J'espère que cela vous aiderait. Bonne chance.

It was great to know about it - really liked this section of the lesson: "ATTENTION: You can also sometimes encounter the form c'est qui que, however, this is NOT really grammatically correct!" But then in the "EXAMPLES AND RESOURCES" section - which is what I use to practice how to speak correctly, the grammatically incorrect examples were mixed with correct ones. It drove me to practice the incorrect ones too -- until I remembered the "attention note" and mentally crossed them out for practice. No biggie, just a note.
