But when used in a place with absolutely no character use limits, makes me wonder what those people do with all that extra time.

It matters, yes. The fact you understand it doesn't change anything.

 

I see it in 2 ways:

- the one understanding knows their crap. In this case, they will notice the mistakes, chuckle inwards and carry on.

- the one understanding is equally bad. In this case both of these people will be validating each other, and will probably end up correcting others that are themselves right.

9/10 because the answer to question 2 is a matter of opinion. :sceptic:

Careful, that'll be a full-time job if you're serious about it.
