comment Are “act quickly” and “gives you” grammatically correct?
"Provides" is a better choice, but the verb is so overused in technical documentation I'd prefer to read almost anything else that's close.

comment Does the phrase “second off” make sense?
Google results stuff the ballot box. Even so, the drop to "second-off" is more than one order of magnitude. That's helpful when determining a proper ration of black and red ink to keep on hand, I suppose...

comment “Environmentally-friendly” vs. “Environment-friendly”
When you start seeing "environment-friendly" on any number of American products, you'll see my point. Sorry you didn't find this helpful.
