If anyone does need to change something, like add more details to a 'for sale' thread, or add information to a 'how to' thread, don't hesitate to contact a moderator. We can either do the edit, or make the post editable again so you can make the changes.

I have learned to be more tolerant with poor use of English, though I am not literary genius by any stretch of the imagination. My mother was always correcting us if we used poor English, something that I find myself doing a fair bit now too, and my siblings do the same as well. Tough breaking old habits.

Irregardless, your best not too loose it alot on folk when there wierd English is not perfect.

I think the initial post was suggesting that people proof read their posts before submitting. It's not improper English that's an issue. It's computer-generated spelling "corrections" that make some posts more difficult to fellow.

I pretty much use the "Advanced Reply" feature all of the time, never "Quick Reply" and use the "Preview Post" before "Submit Reply". I pay attention to the spellchecker red underlining, and investigate what it finds incorrect. I also try to read my post through several times before submitting. I have found that I am often automatically logged out during composition of lengthy posts, and I have to try to salvage text and log back in to complete the submission.

Moderators are tasked with insuring that Thread Titles are spelled correctly to allow the search functions to work as well as possible, and I have corrected some of them. However, text within the posts are left as they were written.

I can state without equivocation that every one of my posts is thoroughly proofread (and immediately corrected) for both grammatical and factual errors.

Sometimes even by me!

I do the factual part... who's checking your grammar?

Just kidding (mostly)...

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
