Same here, Paul. You're correct in associating it primarily with
non-native-English speakers, as well. Worse still: they use that same
language in professional job proposals. Worse beyond that: they are
selected for said jobs. I've dropped clients because they have put me
onto a team with folks like that. Sort of cutting out the bottom of
the barrel, really.
