Better grammar etc.
« on: March 08, 2012, 08:53:32 am »
I have posted about this many times before but have been previously condemned as being overly pedantic etc. Could people please in general improve their spelling and grammar in their posts? Punctuation is not so important on the Internet, but other kinds of mistakes, even some supposedly "legal" ones such as shortening "great" to "gr8" or "thank you" to "thx", make us seem like a bunch of uneducated morons, even if we were all just being lazy at the time.

Now, I know I'm equally guilty. I indeed sometimes trawl my posts, from years ago, to correct past mistakes. I think it might even be a good idea to  ask GS to allow people to edit/improve their posts up to a week after they last made those very posts.

OMG Ty, I'm splitting my sides over here. That is sooooo funny!

Also, just and FYI, though I too mostly appreciate good grammar and punctuation, there's sometimes I'm posting from my iphone and it's just easier, show a brotha some love! Some rawpaleoforum ministry of love, love.
