Thanks for your comment, Kakistocracy.I would agree and say that stylistic differences between punctuation conventions are a matter of choice. There is, as you say, a large degree of variation (and eccentricities!) in the English language that we should celebrate rather than bicker about :)There is, however, no bickering about a blatant spelling mistake. "Than" and "then" have different meanings, unfortunately! Surely there comes a point where we have to put aside our stylistic differences and expect a professional writer to write... professionally?
