Warning for everyone: watch out for American word substitution with this app, ie drongo gets replaced with dildo - I cant even hint what fair dinkum is replaced with.

When a sentence hurts the eyes as much as the brain, it's sad they've paid people to do that.

Grammerly. Seems like a good idea, but the people using it want to make sure they're writing well?
Not the people that need it. Like spellcheck, it's open to user abuse. Like my kids primary school teacher leaving it on US spelling, or adding misspelt words to her dictionary, because she can't spell. Which she thought was hilarious...

The rot of ignorance always starts somewhere.

Words, letters, symbols, runes. They’re all important. They maketh the culture because they represent the culture to the inner circle and the outer audience.

Ignore at your peril.

Like when Steves said there was still an anchor on the jumper that was literally the inner symbol of the replacement logo bunged on top of the gps pouch.

It’s about care factor. Not just willy-nilliness.

There’s been too much willy-nilly from the marketing department in the last decade, on a progressive downward spiral the last 5 years.
