This board is populated by a a majority of members who actually give a hoot about the board and how it actually looks to new viewers. The written word is our only avenue of expression. Do it using standard English as best you are able.
As a new viewer, if I saw that this board is rife with poor grammar, spelling and punctuation...and if I saw that the members do not care enough to self-police themselves, I would be very hard pressed to be confident in the credibility of the board as a whole.
Now if someone goes too far in their chastisement of the offender, then yes, the Mods should step in with corrective action as they see fit. But I believe that we as members can and should do much to ensure that this forum remains readable in the true sense of the word.
