ive seen a few english experts, the wanderer is one possibly and on occasion
there also are non developers who appear to have some serious english
Your english knowledge is clearly a step above diegos and diegos clearly a
step above mine. But neither of you have the knowledge of an average english
professor as far as i can tell.
Diego just yesterday messed up placing a ,
and you where corrected by rodney baker IIRC.

Please dont misunderstand me, i respect your and diegos abilities and i
know you are worlds above my english abilities but you arent at the level
i would call expert. Or i have to call half of all native german speaking
people german experts too.
Also english experts know the american english forms correctly and wouldnt
correct people who used the british form where american was agreed upon.
These kind of mistakes seperate the real <=1% of native english speakers
who are experts from the 50% of native speakers who are good native english
thats all my humble oppinion, no offense is intended

besides, dont forget my keyboard is broken and misses keypresses not all that
rarely ;)
