Then again, one might argue that people for whom English is not a second
language (or a *first* language!) correct spelling and grammar are
particularly important, as they are the only kind of English spelling
and grammar with which they are familiar. As Don once pointed out
(in jest?) DCML members tend to write better English than many of his
fellow countrymen!
