A small rant...
This is slightly off topic, but it does apply to the forum itself. When I click on a topic in any of the sections of the forum and I see something that interests me or is something I might have an answer to and all I see is a posting with no capital letters, no punctuation, words that run into one another, no sentence stucture, and then I just going cross-eyed trying to read that posting. I try to re-read that post again and then I give up trying to make sense of that posting and leave it. I have been to other forums and they don't seem to have that problem. So, what can be done to correct this? Should I just ignore it?
I did graduated from high school many years ago and I'm sure that all or mostly all of us have had an education and there are those who are still pursuing an education. So, why can't they use conversational English when writing a post on the forum? It would be so easy to blame texting for this, but I think texting only has a small role in this. Is the poster just too lazy to use punctuation and correct sentence structuring? I can look past some mis-spelled words and a missing punctuation mark or two, but when words just appear to be all one jumbled mess, I just can't be bothered with it. How can I help a poster with his or her question when they post something I just can't read? If you were to stand in front of me and ask me a question, wouldn't you want to try to ask me that question is such a way that I would understand it? Or, would you just blabber it out just to say it?
Am I the only one who feels this way?
