grammar, spelling, punctuation...

first off, no one is perfect. as long as you can get a point across, I don't mind if it is not 100% grammatically correct nor if the spelling is 100% correct. but in saying that, the original poster must first be open and respectful enough to take criticism and instruction if someone else cannot make out the post because of grammar and spelling.

what i've seen in other posts--even in here--is that people immediately get critical when someone makes a comment about the spelling or grammar. people have to remember that there are people from all over the world who visit here and that english may not be their first language. so, to reiterate, the original poster has to be considerate enough to take criticism on his or her own post if no one else can understand because of grammar and spelling.

lastly, and most importantly, i believe that most of the people here believe that you catch more flies with honey rather than with vinegar. meaning, if you are courteous and respectful, you'll get it in return and you'd be more apt to get the help and assistance you're looking for.

It is interesting how a text without caps is still reasonably readable in English. In German that would be very messy since we capitalize practically every second word.

I thought it was the first and the last. But if you have a German text like this, it is more difficult without caps: "Tragbares Büro, mobiles Kino, Disco zum Mitnehmen".

So i guess you don't mind a foreign non-English speaker to point out that not using caps is very irritating.

From henceforth, I shall use all necessary and required capitalization within. But, why do I hear about it 290 posts after the fact?

I was playing the Google "[your name] is" game referenced in another thread. I came across a blog site where the blogger wrote "I am pissed off about are phone bill."

I thought to myself - 'What an idiot.'

In a medium where you represent yourself solely with the craft and power of your written word, the manner in which you dress and decorate your speech is of nearly immeasurable import.

The idiot in question was myself. By playing the game, I exposed myself to a self-published moron.
