Please fix your section on "JSON Objects", because there is no such thing.

This page: https://www.w3schools.com/js/js_json_objects.asp is actively spreading bad information that we have to fix over on stackoverflow at least once per week.

People keep wondering why their "JSON objects" don't work as expected, they arbitrarily use JSON.parse() on objects and JSON.stringify() on strings because they don't really understand what either function does.

When we tell them that the word "JSON Object" is nonsense and doesn't exist, people link us back to w3schools, citing the page as proof... it's exhausting.

Please, please, please fix this glaring misconceptions that is unfortunately taught to tons of beginners it seems. Until then, we'll keep linking them to this: https://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/280478/why-not-w3schools-com
