Please, have a couple of things in mind:

1.- This is an _OPEN_, INTERNATIONAL LISTING. Here are people, from many
parts -I live in South Europe-, and while I can not talk of my talents, I
can speak five languajes. Of course, this makes me not being as fluent as a
native in any of them, but I _CAN_ comunicate with 75% people in the world,
maybe I make some misspellings. My apologies.

2. - With Word-processing technology, there _IS_ a free lunch: modern word
processors not only check spelling, but grammar! Try one of these, and
you'll wonder how bad is your writting!


I have added OT: to the subject for obvious reasons.

Regards,

Andres j. Ogayar.

Spelling ("->>>>>>> <<<<<<<<-") Grammar and punctuation. Now if that's not
the pot calling the Kettle black! May I suggest that you use a spell checker
first, and one day, you may be **successful** too!

In the UK the "z" can be an "s", though the Oxford English Dictionary does
indicate "z" is permitted for all three of these, (but not for
"organization" interestingly - I am looking in the shorter dictionary
incidentally).

This is not true in the USA, where they always (?) spell these words with
the letter "z".

Your quoted text contains lines beginning with either one or two ">"
suggesting that the pervious poster quoted someone else's message and these
are two different examples by two different people. The context suggests of
each that the first text is a reply to the original message and the second
text is the original poster responding (no I am not going to trawl through
the message history, some of which I have deleted anyway!)
