Assunto:  Do we really need an "either" here?
 
Mensagem: 

I would say it does.

My idea is that either / or is used when you want to stress the exclusion of all other.

I drink either coffee or tea (and nothing else)

I drink coffee or tea ( but I don't mind chocolate milk or guarana either)

 

Out of curiosity: does your MS corrector also 'implica' with or/either in the last sentence?
