Multi-sentence posts....

...are much easier to read when a break is entered now and then by hitting the space bar a couple of times.

Is it just me that has difficulty reading large groups of text?

Trifocals here and getting worse.

Depending on MY interest level I will struggle thru
OR
Just pass.

Guessing some posts are done with phones/pads etc and grammar/punctuation is not priority especially when yelling for HELP

I feel the same way. If there is no capitalization or punctuation, 99% of the time I won't waste my time trying to decipher it.

Seems that most post on this site are well written, informative and sometimes entertainig. Mostly the subject matter draws me in, not particularly the style or appearance.

Oh, may have misspelled a word or two and omitted a comma.....after all, one finger typing this on a phone has its drawbacks. lol

I agree that most posts are "well written, informative and sometimes entertaining", but some are better understood with the IRV2 Translation Guide:

PEDDLE is the thing on the floor that you push on to make the vehicle stop.
BREAK or BREAKS is or are what the peddle is connected to.
TO is when someone really means "too".

This is just the short version, I'm sure others can add more definitions.

I read IRV2 every day and just had to respond with a humorous comment...

Huh - thanks OP - I always write useing many sentences or "Paragraphs" - if you will allow me!!!

I like 'em and makes it easier to read - at least I think so.

I use a lot of "-"s too, to separate ideas.

It's been a long time since I sat in PS-89 in Brooklyn learning the fine arts of writing the english language.

But then again - I speak fluent "Brooklynese".

Great post.......

Bad grammar is often attributed to the young. iRV2 proves that they're not alone.

The key to a good post is editing. Keep it short and to the point.

(I've shortened this one several times before clicking "reply".)

And use your spell checker. Mine finds errors quit often.
Breaks rather than Brakes is a common wrong use of the word, or mis-spelling.

I wish people would commas, or at least a space or dashes, when the should take a breath. I have to re-read some run-on sentences several times before I can understand what the writer is trying to say.
