yes, because a person's ability to spell (in a language other than their native one) is the measure of their intelligence.
that's a very anglo-centric way of looking at the world. how well do you spell in chinese? somehow i doubt you can. true, i often wonder why people who enter into business in the global market don't simply hire a minimum wage copy editor, or.. run spell check.
in a lot of languages, phonetic spelling is enough. in some languages, like arabic, authors omit the vowels altogether.. the writer takes for granted the reader knows how the written root word is used, making the vowels.. extra.
not to start bickering or anything.. but cycling is a global sport.. english only recently became the primary language used.
interesting thread though.. doesnt look like they are doing much interesting except providing us with powder coated spokes.
awesome. im buying em in 300mm, so i can cut them to size when i need em.. cheers!
