    It is often said here that those who do not speak English as their first language speak English better than those of us born and brought up in Great Britain. Slang, bad grammar and poor punctuation must cause endless problems for those overseas and for businesses trading overseas.
    This is true and I feel it. When folks do mistakes in words which I donno my translator neither understand it :P The same thing with slang. But obviosly this situation repeats in any forum or chat, russian or english or germany and so on. People are just too lazy to write full words and sentences :P

    Have we seen this site:
    100 Most Often <strike>Mispelled</strike> Misspelled Words in English

    Very useful
    I just saw that we have a sign up about parents taking videos of shows which are not to be shared 'publically'
    AARRRRRRGGGGHHHH
    (what I don't get, is that the spellchecker should have picked that up anyway)

  3. 2 Thanks to witch:
