Subject RE: Error

I would have to disagree here. Since the sentence is a question, the
verb should preceed the subject ;-)
How can THIS possibly help you?

But I would agree that it reads fine as it is, especially as the tone of
the rest of the paragraph appears to be spoken rather than written

That is not a grammatical error. If you stress the word "this" a bit
more it all makes perfect sense. --> How THIS can possibly help you?

Enough said... this has to be the most irrelevant thread ever on this

If you're volunteering, just check out the module from cvs, modify the 
docs and submit a patch.  All patches to documentation and code are 
greatly appreciated.

If you're offering paid services, you're barking up the wrong tree.
