This article was written by a friend of mine who works in marketing. As sad
as this is, I tend to agree. When companies end up targeting global
audiences the level of English is not that critical. I know that the only
person who will notice if I miss a period, or forget to capitalize a word
is me. Professional pride, and the need to keep my writing skills prevents
me from doing so, but does my target audience really care? I don't think so.

Have a great day,
