So, if I understand this correctly, paragraph structure, spelling and punctuation are required?

I will endeavor to comply.........

perhaps just a friendly reminder to those who dont bother to use periods commas or capital letters is it really annoying to try to read stuff like that i guess it might be its like trying to say the whole alphabet with one big breath you know you breath in real deep and just belt it out and hope you dont run out of air anyway maybe something to think about now i have to go bye

Oh my.........

I think I may have seen that somewhere here on the forum. Another result of the "No Child Left Behind" program, no doubt. To have to sit as a spectator watching the unabashed murder of a language is rather disturbing. Perhaps the introduction of acronyms was the first blow, FWIW....

I can count the number of people that still hand write letters, in cursive, on one hand. (Myself included) It is fast becoming a lost art. I have had younger folks ask me what I was looking at when reading a posted letter, and when I show them, they hand it back and ask what it says.

Very sad indeed.


MUAH!

If'n I sees the phrase "begs the question" used instead of "raises the question," or "price point" used for "price" one more time, I'm just gonna BUST!

I just joined this forum tonight, and I must say, seeing this thread made me very happy. Poor grammar really get on my nerves! We're all prone to the occasional mistake or typo, but there are some folks out there that just really have a hard time understanding.

I think anyone that has a problem with improper or poor grammar has got bigger problems then they think.
Never bothered me and I use it all the time. I figure if I can understand what an individual is saying
then what's the problem? There's a hell of lot more things out there that people should be worried about, that they don't, then how someone talks, spells, or fricken writes or type's.
Grammar Police, when do you have time to really read anything if your more focused on how a sentence is constructed? I say, Get A Life! and get on down the road.
