I don't care that much either but I agree with ya Pete tho. It's easier to read without mistakes then with them. I actually have that at work, when someone's busy in English. I always feel the need to correct them. For e.g. he meant 'sweet' but wrote 'sweat' --> big diffrence: tasty and sweaty....

Unfortunately, no one can be told what Qbinux is. You have to see it for yourself.

You might not care about spelling / grammar, but a lot of readers do...myself included.

I think everyone should read this

I don't know why, but misuse of apostrophes REALLY pisses me off.

I can't say I really care about the errors/typos.. As long as it's readable and not completely fork up I'm fine with it..


unless, of course, it's typed in capitals. :D
