Default I thought someone would have caught this +/- Fountain

Whether you're a fountain fan or not, this is the main blurb on the OSO news.
Reggie get into the oat business??
I just found the typo funny, and I'm surprised no-one pro/con Fountain has ran with it yet.

I didn't even read the whole thing, but at a glance, the oats thing jumped out at me.

PLEASE - if you're going to put out a press release, proofread the release. Not just spell-check, proofread.
Simple things like this can make the whole industry look like it's run by unintelligent businessmen/women - which also makes the customers look just as bad if not worse. People already don't like the loud flashy fast boats. No need to fuel the fire by not even being able to control the English language, let alone a mega-HP boat.
