acknowledgement not work?

I read in the Chosun Ilbo about a page designed to help foreigners register with Korean webpages.
The Korea Communications Commission is offering another way to make life easier for foreigners living in Korea.
In cooperation with the Korea Association of Information and Telecommunications, the commission on Monday opened a Web site (www.ifriendly.kr) to help foreign expats with problems they might face when joining Korean portals.
This is what they came out with.
Foreigners do complain about how difficult it is to register for Korean websites, not simply because of the language barrier but because our alien registration numbers are not compatable. But I wish they would have given the "English" a once-over before unveiling a webpage designed to help, among others, English-speakers. I'm trying to be mild, but . . . the fuck?
Found via both the Korean Government's Twitter page, and Gangwon Notes, the latter . . . noting that the generic foreigner they chose, Hong Gil-dong, is a character in a Korean folk tale akin to Robin Hood.
