That actually plagued me for about 5 minutes but then I thought I'd leave it :D

Normally I'm not the best with speeling and granma on a forum, but this thread brings out the effort in one !

kiwitrc: I know a lot of people get a bit annoyed when spelling and grammar are pointed out in forums, but here is an example why it is important.

poor b@stard is going to wonder why hundreds of hits and no bids, watches or questions!

I'd bet money someone at TM just did a whole site search for "c(o)unt"...

The Heli c(o)unter is still there, so I guess it was a community watch complaint vs TM staff finding it by themselves.

Spelling - talk about an emotional thing.

Pointed out a post on GZ to my wife the other night... the poster has quite a grasp on the subject, but she just dismissed him as he couldn't spell.
