Thanks Nigel. Grammar and spelling are my weak points.

Oh, for crying out loud!  You *know* what the person meant.  Why hassle over a minor poor choice of 
words?  We've seen comments on here to the effect that spelling doesn't matter, that grammar doesn't 
matter, yet somehow after disregarding all that we're still supposed to prepare every utterance for 
the most minute inspection of the PC Thought Police.  Political Correctness Uber Alles?  Give it a 
rest, please.
