Yes, but Michael is right. I had originally started my reply with something like "Your example..." and then changed my approach, edited my sentence, and never properly re-wrote it from the beginning.

I try to make an effort to write properly because many readers are not native English speakers. Analogous typos (and slang) in Japanese and German occasionally throw me for a loop as well, so I have a lot of sympathy for feelings of annoyance at these kinds of mistakes.

Sorry about the confusion!
Hopefully the example in Erlang was clearer than my poorly written English.
