The article you link to is written in American, not English (further update coming!), and any nation is entitled to define their language in any way they choose. However, in English, it's Just Plain Wrong. See my reply (Re^6: poll ideas quest 2015) to Soonix for more discussion.

Inside can be a noun or a preposition. "He is inside the house" and "he is painting THE inside OF the house" are both correct, but "he is inside of the house", while unpleasantly common, is Just Plain Wrong.

Yes, the PERL one is specific to writing, but it does get some people agitated.

John Davies

    Oh, now i understand. :) That option is going to have to be linked to the explanation, however.
