That's the subject of the email I received from London 2012 Marketing.

Aaaaaaaaaaaargh... Couldn't somebody have checked it before it got sent out so widely?

Sorry... not sure how this has happened but the '&#8207' bit at the end was not part of the issue. Must have been added when I copied the text. I don't want to confuse you all! Grin

I got that email too and was horrified!

I would hope that somebody is going to be given some grief about it... (I was about to say 'a bollocking' but I am not sure if this is acceptable or not in the Pedants' Corner section Smile)

I was just going to start the very same thread - how on Earth could that have got through checking.

Obviously standards slip when Lord Seb is out of the country Grin

I suspect it was not checked... I even hope it went unchecked, otherwise I despair!

I see that took their life in their hands again today but passed the "it's" test with flying colours Grin

ooooh... I did not get any new message today. I must have been snubbed...
