Replying (Stolen from Ethan)
« on: November 19, 2011, 03:39:47 pm »
I'm going to try to be serious for a second.

A majority of the members on this forum don't know how to respond to a post. I'm not trying to sound like a jerk, so hear me out.

I'm tired of taking the time to write a response to people, spell check it, and proofread it for grammar mistakes, just for someone to reply.

I'm not trying to be a grammar Nazi, but please, if you're going to argue with me(or anyone for that matter), take the time to write a post that doesn't make you look like a dork.

Things not to do:

Saying "GF" at the end of your post.

Not capitalizing the first letter of a sentence.

Not capitalizing "I" when talking about yourself.

Not capitalizing the first letter(s) of proper nouns.

Misspelling words; the red squiggly line means something.

Confusing homophones,e.g, "to","too",and "two"; "there","their", and "they're".

Misuse of commas. They go before conjunctions, at the end of a quote, to make a list; e.g "one, two, and three."; to clarify something; e.g " Bob, the janitor,"; or to show a break in a sentence.

Misuse of words to sound smart; the best way to sound smart is to express the biggest concepts using the fewest and shortest words.


Constant use of "lol".

Using shorthand like "y", "u", and "plz".

Thanks for reading.
