I was reading a Quora answer , which contained the following sentences :
"Before I moved here in 2013, I read everything I could lay my hands on about China, especially on the internet, and especially blogs written by people who had lived here or currently were."
While the sentences are clear and understandable, and my understanding of the sentences meant, by the time the writer were reading the blogs, the blog-writer were then living in China. Should the writer use "then" instead of "currently"?
I have a feeling "currently" can only work with present tense, am I wrong? Examples?
PS. the writer of the quoted sentences is an IELTS teacher, so I suppose he should be a master of grammar, and had reasons for his choice of words and right about them.
