New People are you having fun studying? well take a break from a days work and chat about what u have learn / or talk about some useful tips.

Advance Hard Working People Help us out when you come by and see something wrong


By The Way i don't know if this is the best place to post
Ok i said it before Sorry if you want to delete this then it's fine


This somehow turned into a lesson for people that don't use proper grammar on this forum or any other =D

I also wonder is it okay to change the subject tittle

We were already doing that anyway, but it is nice to know you support that.

How much more effort would it be to write "sorry" instead of "srry"?

I've said it before, and it annoys me that I have to keep doing this.

As I often say -- if you don't have the courtesy to take the time to write properly with proper grammar, spelling, syntax, and punctuation, you are showing that you don't think we are worth your time and effort.

So what kind of time and effort should we put out on YOUR behalf, then? In other words, if you so clearly disrespect me, I will not bother helping you.

And it stuns me, sometimes, that I have to take this much time to explain something that one's parents should have taught one as a child.

Heck, anyone who's been around the web knows to read the bloody FAQ, all ALL this stuff is in there, so it can't come as a shock that we like communicating like adults rather than semi-literate morons.

Now, assuming the OP is a kid, the typical reaction to this is to feel a combination of embarrassment and anger. The latter usually comes out, while the former tends to stay internalized. Personally, I don't care. I just want the OP to get over himself and join the party like anyone else, and write like someone with a sense of maturity and understanding, and we'll all get along fine.

You guys are a bit harsh!

Nucks, welcome, but it is best to not drop vowels or use letters to mean words around here. :)

Welcome, Nucks!

It's not just a habit - it's a bad habit...

Anyway, have fun and learn a lot!

Oh, a friendly reminder; please edit your original post if you want to add additional information instead of posting several posts in a row. See you around!

I'll take that as an advice and cut off this bad habit.
