Upcoming Abarth Meeting 2012
« on: April 27, 2012, 07:50:28 PM »
 I noticed the banner at the top of every page advertising the upcoming 3-country 2012 Abarth Meeting. Someone really needs to proofread this! Maybe at least use a spellchecker?

 For example, there is no apostrophe (')  in the word Giants. And on the round logo for the event, why use all capital letters except for the last letter "s"? ???

GIANTS or Giants, not Giant's or GIANT's.

Yes, this may seem trivial, but it just looks ridiculous for such a highly-touted international event! ;)

I often have to attend international meetings for the Group I am working for.

In order to obtain the maximum cooperation from everybody the ground rule is: "everybody speaks his own english".

On this forum this rule can be translated into: everybody writes his own english

This is a Polish rally where WE are invited, so we are (potential) guests. 

In my book it is unethical for guests to make jokes about their host, who is trying to write or speak a language which is not his own.
