This topic came about due to the LANGUAGE Policing on specific hosts around forums; it was an innocent homage on a British poem. I feel the pain because the other day (on facebook) I had an extensive mockery on something I wrote. It was my own verse, the mockery went on for about a week because I used a semi-colon ; instead of a simple coma. This mocking loser never wrote a poem or even read anything, he only saw the misplaced semi-colon and it bothered him so much he had nothing else to do but pick on me.

It's great that you aren't British,  blush

... because there's a guy on D-Forums, a self-proclaimed ''teacher, a Scottish national living in Spain,'' with a hardcore honesty and feeling with a poignant obligation to correct everyone's grammar and typo everywhere...

I don't think APH0rism will be back, no matter what we do or say. It's more about the huge numbers of emails she gets from unknown senders. ... and she isn't alone.

How personal 'privacy gets exposed to hackers that send hundreds of email a day is beyond my comprehension.

I think both sides should open their minds that there's more than BRITISH or American tongues on this planet.

More countries other than Britain and America have the English language mastered.

The United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and New Zealand, where the overwhelming majority of native English speakers reside, do not have English as an official language de jure, but English is considered to be their de facto official language due to its dominant position in these countries.
