Well...I don't think it was OTT because, after all, it was one of SO many things. If it had been the only thing, I'm sure Basso wouldn't have posted. That one was a proofreading error. There's an 'edit' facility on here, so we can 'admire' our ramblings, and put things like that right. Sorry, OP (Jenny?) - this can't have been comfortable reading for you. Another poster did refer to standards of English on the internet in general, but posts on a forum of educators should, surely, be of a reasonable standard. I hope this won't put anyone off posting in the future, and goodness knows I make the occasional howler myself, but I do think Basso has raised an important issue here. Perhaps there should be a separate thread?
