Non-Stardard Horizon post - sorry

Codders,

I really couldn't be arsed at the time, but there have been a few posts lately where your grammar and spelling have definitely slipped. If you'd be kind enough to dig these out, I'm sure we'd all be delighted to use them as examples of what to avoid.

In addition, your use of punctuation is still excessive leading to confusion for readers as to whether you are amazed, confused, incredulous or just panting orgasmically.

Pots, kettles, stones, greenhouses etc etc

Agreed my standards have slipped somewhat - my keyboard seems to be getting very dyslexic lately but I am NOT just picking up on silly spelling mistakes - it's the ever creeping trend of Americanisms. I have nothing against our transatlantic cousins using them but surely we don't want the whole of the UK to go the same way?

Yo! 'Sup bitches?

Have sympathy for those of us in Canada! I work in the communications field and we have some major clients who insist that we use "American" spelling in their publications. Their reasoning is that Canadians "understand" why some words are spelled incorrectly, but Americans don't understand it at all.

As if that isn't enough, most of our TV originates south of the border, as well as magazines and books.

I think it just a matter of time until Canada becomes officially quadra-lingual: English, French, American and Eubonic!
