Countable nounsEdit

Hi! Please do not use "amount" for countable nouns. You wrote "... a limit on the amount of emails a user can send each day", but that should read "... a limit on the number of emails a user can send each day", as emails are countable.

@Justlettersandnumbers: Thanks! I'm mildly embarrassed that this one was my fault. (Someone tagged the task as needing inclusion, I tried to understand the task and suggested some proposed wording, and nobody caught the error). On the other hand, not all of the newsletter's editors and writers are native English speakers, so the occasional grammatical error/imperfection is guaranteed!
