Typos, misuse of words, and gross grammatical errors tend to indicate, to
me a former J-major, that someone doesn't care whether they actually
_communicate_ so long as it looks like they are. One error per screen
if the screen is text-heavy is one thing, but four lines of type, each
with an error is different. Since I haven't been to this website, I
don't know where on the continuum it falls, but if it was mentioned, it
was apparent -- and apparent errors which remain uncorrected imply no one

Well, I *could* name a site where e-mail to the firstname.lastname@example.org
comes back UNKNOWN USER, and I could name another where mail to
email@example.com is apparently ignored even when a question such
as "what is the company's mailing address?" is asked. Again, the effect
is, no one cares.
Most likely NOT the effect National (or anyone else!) is trying to produce.
