OK Bo, you’ve invited observation that:
– The proper term is Wite-Out. It’s a trademark.
– “weed these type of discrepancies out” — You mean “this type of discrepancy” and best not to split “weed out.”
– “cyclic rate” doesn’t make much sense. “Fast rate” and “rapid cycles” would, but “cyclic” by describes a pattern and not a pace.
But I know what you meant in every case. What I want you to do is understand that, for the 3rd time, we all make mistakes, and they do not necessarily mean we’re incompetent.

So did George W. Bush have no credibility as president, in your opinion, because of his numerous English-language errors?
After all, “You teach a child to read, and he or her will be able to pass a literacy test.”
I don’t hold that opinion myself, regarding a link between Bush’s grammatical errors and his competency.

Right, and I’m forgiving of these *inevitable* errors, as should you be.

GovLoop isn’t a social network, it’s a forum site that uses Web 2.0 social-media tools. True social networks connect people across site/service boundaries. They’re about people and communications, facilitated by sites that include GovLoop but not constrained within any one site. But that’s quibbling about definitions.
Further, I like GovLoop, but it’s highly US centric and not the *anything* for government or Government 2.0 in general.
