This might read like a 1st World problem, and we aren't corresponding for an English grammar test, but when writing Q&A's, some people should be more attentive to the correct use of the words... there, their and they're. 

Feel free to discuss or ignore my mini-rant 🤔. I'm done 😁

I totally agree with you, although I expect you will receive lots of the "here come the grammar police"  type of reply from certain members! Sometimes it's not easy to understand what some posts are actually about.

Mags44, 1-0 to the good guys, let's see how it plays out.

Happy with your capitalisation of 'World' and the use of the comma and the 'and' for a conjunction.

However, I would expect that an ordinal number of ten or lower should de spelt out, so 'First' not '1st', surely?

And emojis!

RichT, I thought I'd throw in a couple of anomalies. Well done 😂

And I suppose we're all wondering whether the wether will weather the storm ...

1st:  english is my 3rd language. I find it sometimes very funny to read some posts. On the other hand I have to ask my husband (he has a Dr. in english and german language) for a translation/interpretation...and he can't understand what the person like to ask. 

I like to see these posts as fun.

Yes, all serious style guides lowercase 'world' and all numbers under 10 should be written..

You see  it is a slippery slope. Lets relax a little,.

Ha, ha, ha..... presumably the lack of punctuation and apostrophes in your sentence were deliberate, Roberto?
