Request re grammatical correction


 Posted 13 days ago, edited 13 days ago More by Gliceria P.

Two days ago Sanjeev of India posted a request under Suggestion to fix a grammatical error in the message at Astro Auction during Flight that says: "You've just won one Rewardicals". Which prompted some interesting comments and responses.... Well, Sanjeev, you must be happy now. I have just noticed the error has been rectified ! Have you seen it?😮 See, Gary has a big heart and big ears....he listens!🤔 And SFI loves you! Cheers! GP of Oz😊

Hi Glicera P., You are so right. but I think everyone sending emails should have a grammar help of some sort. I found some of my own called: Grammatical. a free service giving grammar, spelling and punctuation. All free. Even if I'M quite at ease with English, I am still of French origin. And now, I realize I make sevral mistakes. Hope that will help a little. Best regards.

Nice one, being able to make a correction is the best thing. Your grammatical speaking and correction will improve.

If a thread does not lend itself to discussion, it probably needs to go somewhere else. Is it a major deal? No, unless everyone wants to start making threads about grammar, spelling, or any number of small things we notice. The thread in question was closed and reopening it just sparks the same disputes. I hold no ill will towards the author of the original post, or the author of this post. I have strong feelings about micro-managing every sentence in this platform by forum.
