[Update] "You're" or "Your"?!

, posted: 7-Sep-2007 12:14

I get quite peeved when a sentence doesn't make much sense all because of single misuse of a word. For example, have a hunt around on this company's site and look for a sentence/word that just doesn't fit well in its context at all... (hint: check out the city/region) Isn't this embarrassing for a big public company like them? p/s: I don't claim that I don't make any mistakes (spelling or grammatic mistakes). However, I do expect big company to double or even triple check their content before publishing it out the world wide web... Have a read at this forum topic "Basic English Grammar" Update: Looks like TelstraClear has finally made the correction after 3 weeks. Well done...

The mind boggles. What possible reason could there be for a 'you're' in the first case and a 'your' in the second case? (And am I imagining it or are they using colours identical to Orcon's?)

I'm sure the good folk at TCL have a lot on their minds at the moment, but I agree, there can be no excuses for such shoddy proofreading.

I love it on the forums at the moment, there are a lot of people who ask about the manufacturers WARRENTY.

I wonder how many of these people also get a warrent for their motorvehicle? Or if their vehicle is worthy enough to get a warrant, just not their computer?
