Most people on the Internet are probably illiterate. Especially the ones who tell you that you have "grammer" errors when you have grammar errors. That always freaks me out - people complaining about your grammar when they can't even spell grammar.

But apparently it's mean to point that out to people

So you don't have to deal with those people who speak Australian or those people from Great Britain, especially from England because they speak something like...Russian?
But how could you stand being on the same server as those who speak Canadian?

Seriously have you never actually watched Trek?
It's a united Earth and people who are no native Enlish speakers like myself can use the exercise in forums like these to learn how to properly construct sentences and express themselves correctly in a language they only learned in school.
Besides whenever I read comments like these I think it's good thing people from North America have contact to the rest of the world because this way their language does not degrade like this one's

Seriously though: I am not a native English speaker and I haven't noticed any mistakes in English from NPC's, that would make the text incomprehensible or ridiculous.
This level of grammar nazism is completely ridiculous and making a separate server for North America is also seriously stupid, because what would be left would be British, Germans, a few Frenchies and a handful of other nationals like me and that's it. They'd use English anyway.

Also, that klink spamming "HAR HAR I RAEP FEDERATON HAHA RUN NOOBZ ME KEEL" in Kerrat yesterday was from the USA.
