Rapping Apple Software Writer’s Knuckles

(I had some other title, but I figured my husband wouldn’t read the post as it was. So I came up with that title, which is accurate, but much longer than I had originally intended.) Language Log has a post about a dialog box that pops up on the mailer and isn’t linguistically coherent. What happened to Apple’s “intuitively obvious” responses?

And, also on Language Log, a response/explanation for the poorly written dialog boxes.
