/ NEW ARTICLE: Innovation, Mike Parsons and Alpkit Nick
For the past 15 years Graham Thompson has been banging on about membrane lined boots such as Gore-tex, Event, Sympatex and how they where inherently less breathable than a boot without such a lining. We saw the research, it had plenty of graphs and they used all kinds of sensors and stuff and.....it's official, the science has been done. "
Nick Smith reports on Innovation for Extremes conference held at Lancaster University Management School on Wednesday 26 September.

That's an appallingly badly proof-read article: there are several missing question marks, at least two apostrophes in plurals and what is "indentification"?
I appreciate that you want to get things up quickly, but in an article I don't think such errors are acceptable. They reflect badly on the site as a whole.
Yip...we could do with a proofer.
I'll have another look whilst negelecting essential advertising, news reports...and and I'm out the door in 2 hrs on other UKC work.
Got most of them. Ta.

In fairness to Mick if it was better to start with. It would of saved him a lot of time.
'This was definitely an underlying theme of ... rather than what we think you would like?' The question mark at the end should be a full stop.
'...our industry "Pushes, not pull's."' There should not be an apostrophe in "pull's". (I loathe this mis-use of the apostrophe even more than its mis-use in plurals.)
'It would of been nice...' Change "of" to "have". (This is another of the common errors that makes me cringe every time I see it. I note that Nick has used it again in his posting to this thread. Arrggh!)
'Rearearch & Development' I leave that one as an exercise for the reader.
Congratulations, though: this article managed to incorporate two of the mistakes that I hate most, even after you checked it yourself!
