Unfortunately, even if one optimistically ascribes a degree of honesty
to the reviewers, one[1] must question their perception and
understanding - or at least their spelling abilities.
Maybe she uses a spell checker like this one
You can do better than that. The poem has several words spelled
correctly. Years ago, I redid one such and had every word spelled
wrong.

Notice how much is "user dependent". I guess that means "quick scan",
"in depth", "rootkit scan" etc. Mind you, it says one good thing about
AVG, viz. the user retains control.
"Even if quite important, the data provided in the test reports on this

And they don't say where they get their support! :)

I congratulate you for excellent multi-tasking.

BTW I thought that was what you were doing with the original sentence;
half Castilian, half French.

That's it! I am absolved!

The Spell Checker Is Always Right

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques for my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever rung.

Eye have this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sow.
Please forgive me for not reading it all the way through - my head was
reeling :)

That reminds me of car insurance... every company is
cheaper than every other company.
Their headquarter buildings were all designed by M. C. Escher.

No, but Kaspersky gets a gold star.

So why should we listen to your opinions if you won't back them up?
Just don't listen. I don't care.

If I were more responsible, and if I had realized that you would be
demanding documentation of me of all the reviews, both in dead-tree
publications and on line, that I have read for the last 15 years or so,
I would have kept detailed records, in order to satisfy you. Just as you
have done in all of your reading.

That irritates me too. Over about 67 of the last 70 years I've read
extensively on a daily basis, along with sourcing information from
journals, radio, TV and other media. To be asked to catalogue that reading
in such a manner as to be able to instantly find and offer proof of it all
for those too idle to look things up themselves is just a tad over the top.
Anyone reading my mail has three options if I make a statement - believe
it, don't believe it, or check for themselves. It's their choice, and I
don't give a damn either way.

Thanks for the clear statement and support.

You'd think Mr One Way would already understand it himself...

1/2 star below Norton is "not even close"?
If PC Mag gives Norton any decent rating, it loses all credibility
with me. Symantec turns everything it touches to s--t.

I never type "+1" because I don't really understand it. I know what
it's supposed to mean, but I don't know why or where it came from.
Does it simply mean "one more person who agrees with you" or is it
something more complicated? Can you (or anyone else here) help?
Try a search for
"+1" in forums
and you'll see a lot of people's opinions.

My own is that it means "I agree, and you said it as well as I could
have."

Yes, thanks. I just did. But opinions are nothing more than opinions.

My own is that it means "I agree, and you said it as well as I could
have."

Yes, it clearly means that, but why use those characters and how did
it get started?

Ditto! (No +1 from me)

I think it came from one or more of the social media sites, such as
Facebook or Twitter.

Or perhaps a review site, such as yelp.

I rarely. if ever, go to those, so of course the above is a guess.

My guess (or understanding) is that it means "plus one" using
mathematics symbols + (plus) 1 (one). So it would be something like - I
fully agree with you.

And my other guess is similar to Gene E. Bloch's: "I think it came from
one or more of the social media sites, such as Facebook or Twitter."
