Looking to buy Holo port

If someone is looking to sell his Holoport, let me know.

Can workout the details once we are matched.

What’s the problem, Stephen? Seems unlike you to respond in this unfriendly way…

Before I broadened my horizons through the world of open source software and had the pleasure of meeting many different people from around the world, I never used to understand the damage being done by using gender-specific words. I still only have an inclin of how damaging it is, and my frustration at use of the word “his” here was I agree a little out-of-character and perhaps not explained, I guess I still feel it is a touchy subject to approach so tried to use a more visual approach, which I see may not have had the desired effect which was to alert to the use when perhaps “their” would’ve been a better choice.

Stephen, I don’t mind buying a port off an alien from outer space. Gender is an off topic and it is inappropriate to be discussed here. However, I apologise if using a pronoun is offensive to others. Thank you for your comment.

Sorry but I have to ask something because I’m not native English speaker so I should wrap up my mind about how to use the sentence correctly.

Would “If someone is looking to sell their Holoport” be a correct sentence in terms of grammar? If not, what is the right way to do?

Thanks @Moewally - believe it or not I did consider whether I should reply as you quite rightly point out gender is off-topic so I felt it appearing here needed to be pointed out otherwise the current situation doesn’t change. So I appreciate you noticing the issue - I’m quite used to being the messenger who gets shot, and I’ve learned from this a better way of pointing similar issues next time, namely to be a little clearer and offer suitable alternatives. I’ll still get shot though lol but many egos will die in the name of change I guess :wink:

Sounds fine, and I should’ve replied with that in the first place, I apologise for my somewhat lacking, triggered response and thank you for asking as it shows you care, that’s all we have to do to make massive changes.

cheers
