Incorrect grammar on the homepage

Postby cdh473 » Sat Oct 23, 2010 11:58 pm

I noticed a little typo under the "ALGODOO and 1:1 Computing" section of the homepage.

Are you interested in a solution for your school, city or region.

The period should be a question mark.
Just to let you guys know.
Please excuse my posts. I am extremely stupid.

Seems like a rhetorical question to me, which does not require a question mark.

Your face seems like a rhetorical question. Cdh is right, this is incorrect. It needs to be fixed before I go on a murderous rampage.

You start a sentence with a negative word when you mean something positive. So “Wasn’t that movie great?” means that you think the movie was great.

That's from some website http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/rh ... -mark.aspx
