Goodness, this topic is getting way off where it was supposed to go. I don't care about the avatars, that is not the point. The point is, the lack of punctuation and the lack of general proper usage of the English language is the point.

Yes, there are more important things to think about, however, we have to read these posts and I have to say, when you do not use simple and proper grammar, it makes you look like an idiot, or like you don't really care if you get a response.

For those of you who think this is not an "issue", well it is, and let'* be honest, we the moderators are getting tired of having to learn a whole new language in order to read some of these posts. Proper grammar is not a big deal, but it is a common courtesy, so try to use it, and yes you do have a the option of using the "Preview" feature.

Lol.... PMom, I'm sorry for such a hijack. I thought there was no way my original comment would be taken seriously, since it was so far from the topic of your original post! My bad, and please delete my posts as you see fit

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

Ok i realy dont know what the big deal is about this...

There is ALOT!!!! of people in thw world that have spelling problems... IE. ME!!

There is nothing, And i Mean Nothing that anyone or anything can do to change that way i am. There is thing i will always spell wrong.
Its that way i am. And the same goes for some other people.

Not to offend any one or Pmon. But.. Someone people on here need to relax!
The world and BC is not going to end because of 20 or so people spelling wrong.
Also yes it may be easy for those people who are brining this up to say.. "just prewiew and dubble check"
well i for one can dubble and tripple check some things i write and never see whats wrong.

Finaly. If spelling is realy that big of a deal to MODs & Admins Then why dont you add a Spell check option like 70% of the other Forums have out there. I would use it some times.
Im just not going to write somthing in Word and then copy it into BC, thats just dumb and a wast of time.

These past two Spelling and Grammar theds kinda T'd me off in a personal way.
Because i have been battleing my spelling problem my whole life.
Going thru school with people bugging me.
And no teacher or other school could ever 100% fix me.
I have come a long way but this is about the best ill ever be.
and im sure some of ther other people that spell wrong on a reguler bases have a smilar problem.

This is getting far too out of hand, okay we can continue the way things have been going, not a big deal. As for not being able to spell very well, you know what most of the english language is based on words being spelled incorrectly. Also, we don't even need all the letters in the right spots. I was merely pointing out the fact that sometimes the posts are hard to understand due to lack of punctuation.

Just keep in mind that what you are trying to say is like having a conversation with someone, and when you are conversing with someone you do take breaths in between your sentences.

If anyone was offended by this please accept my sincerest apologies, that was not my intent.

This topic in now done.
