Be nice Eric, we all get fat fingers every now and then.

 

I agree with both of you. I understand Eric's frustration at so-called or self-proclaimed "professionals' " inability to spell and use proper grammar, but we all slip up occasionally.

 

I will probably never be in a position to hire pilots (aviation is unfortunately not my chosen profession - whoops), but if I had to choose between two individuals and all other things were equal, I'd pick the person that could spell and write and otherwise be proficient in the English language. I am not a "lock down the borders" kind of guy, but I would insist that anyone that wants to work here in ANY role be very proficient at the language, including its grammar, punctuation, and spelling.

 

It's a sad testimony to our culture that the main language of the US seems to be going the way of Latin - a.k.a. a dying "art" However, text messaging on cellphones and IM clients seem to be driving our way of communicating towards a manner that is devoid of vowels :) .
