I take both your points, Deedee and Trace and one should always try to spell correctly and write using the correct punctuation and grammar. We all have different abilities in that respect and the best you can hope for is that people give it their best.
Yes we do have a number of contributors whose mother tongue is not English and they make this site a more interesting and informative place to be. However, I doubt they come on here for an English lesson. I wish I could speak Dutch, German, French, Greek etc 1% as well as these folks speak English.
My point was simply that the website is about communicating and not who has the best command of the English language.
By the way, congratulations on banning text speak. It probably precludes a huge number of people under 16 but it does make life much easier on the eye for us old crusty’s.
