    I am so surprised to read the comments above which really show no respect to the original blogger. And the English writing is so poor, and why there are so many ignoring the case sensitivity in their writing?

    • John Doe mr this is not the place to show your attitude ok its a technical things people here posting so better quit from here.. this place is not for you to advice anyone and dnt blame others english ok.

  4. Anna, thank you for putting up your cv, I was able to pick up quite a few useful pointers from it.
    @John Doe: “I am so surprised to read the comments above which really show no respect to the original blogger. And the English writing is so poor, and why there are so many ignoring the case sensitivity in their writing?” I don’t see you showing any respect to Anna in the first place, yet you think it is alright to point out that someone else isn’t doing it? And who on earth are you to comment about someone’s English skills when it is very apparent that you don’t seem to have any. The right way to write your second sentence is “The English is poor, and why are they ignoring case sensitivity in their writing?” Correct yourself first, before finding faults in others.
