...not on the forum this time, but in published media. I've just seen a TV advert for the LG Optimus smartphone, with a caption stating that "Application accessibility is dependant on network coverage." Last week there was an advert in the Metro freesheet for a limited edition Mazda 2, comparing its specification with that of the "Volkswagon Golf." Meanwhile a BBC news bulletin featured a prominent caption about the percentage of the population "effected" by a medical condition and Channel 4 chipped in by adding the word "focussed" to the English language. Don't these companies/broadcasters get anyone to proofread their adverts and captions before releasing them? Or is it that the people doing the checking are themselves the product of a broken education system?
