Please bring the jobs back to the States

Is Yahoo! outsourcing the writing on yahoo.com to a non-English-speaking country? It sure seems that way when you see common words misused:

The word ship does not refer to anything that floats and can hold a person. If it were, we’d be calling canoes, kayaks, and rubber rafts “ships.” A ship is “a vessel of considerable size for deep-water navigation, or a sailing vessel having three or more square-rigged masts.” So says the American Heritage Dictionary.

I say bring those overseas jobs back to the U.S. — or at least an English-speaking country.
