Default Re: Open Letter to RIM From One of Their Execs & RIM's Response to It!

It may be a pet peeve, but I don't think the International businessperson who may not know all the nuances of a language like English is the one ruining (butchering?) the language.

Reading through his blog I think he did a pretty good job of communicating using English. I understood it. And he does include this disclaimer:
"Hint: English isn't my native language, so excuse me if anything is wrong written or misspelled. Feel free to ask if you don't understand anything"

Now the 15 year-olds using text-speak as English.....Them I am worried about. Also the recent college graduates who don't understand there is a difference between "their" and "there"....Them I am very worried about.
