Another random blog by someone whose grammar skills are ephemeral.
Is that important?

The article may well have been competently written in another language and then put into English through some variety of translation s/ware. "Mechanical" translations of this sort, without human "polishing" can produce some awesomely bad second language prose.

FWIW.
