I'm tempted to name this thread after our most serious offender.
Repent, or else...

Judah Kanowitz might not be the only one with a dedicated thread.

This is what @ExGingi would call regular chinese english

+1  If we post all English that comes out of China this thread will quickly surpass the 2016 Poison thread.  It's  only a "Shame" if the writer is an ostensible native English speaker.

Belonging to Hatzalah.  without the apostrophe it would mean plural (many) Hatzalahs.

It is plural - thank you to the many Hatzalahs worldwide - not possessive. That's exactly what I'm saying.

I think it's one Hatzalah with man branches, rather than many Hatzalahs.

Either way the sentence isn't possessive. You can watch Hatzalah's concert but you are not raising money for all the Hatzalah's.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

If memory serves, this discussion was had on this forum a while back and @Dan or @jj1000 had a reason for it not being there.

It really irks me when people write glady instead of gladly. Originally, I thought it was a simple typo, but then I saw it used again and again.
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.
