apparently it's common among brits, but it might need an 'old-fashioned' tag

interesting. I thought it sounded like some bad translation of Japanese...
It would be easier to distinguish crap from valid sentences if the users who acknowledge this validity would adopt the valid sentences as is recommended by the the contributor's guide.
To me, un-owned sentences without any tag are suspicious...

Thanks!
