Please don't quote me out of context :)

I was referring to what he said a bit later in the paragraph,
immediately after the "Besides,":

"I'm not the author and I don't know everything in the program, so I
copied the description from its web."

I know you don't need to know everything about a program to write a
description :) But if he was unable to write a description (broken
English or not, whatever) without copying from the web site, there is a
SERIOUS issue here.

If it was just laziness, though, nevermind :) (Seriously. If that's all
it was, it's much less of a deal ;)
