So, there is a precedent for writing awkwardly. Now we are all dealing with the correct form of our language in electronic data.
Content or context. I can figure out the content, but sometimes, I can't tell if it is broke, missing, was never there, or is working properly.

I'd like to see example(s) of the OP's posting concerns. We're shootin' in the dark without a factual example or two. ...IMHO

Do a search for "ur". 172 threads with ur in it.

I agree. And as already stated, without punctuation is very hard to understand.

Clicking on someone's username will bring up a menu from which to select.

One of the selections is "Add ******** To Your Ignore List".

Wonder what that does....

I just tried it and I won't say who I ignored. You see that they posted something but you don't see what.

Ahhhhhh,

So trolls would go unseen? THAT's a great idea!

Those folks at Internet Brands (who write this VBulletin software) think of almost everything!

There used to be an option where you could hide that they even made a post. Not there anymore.

Yep so if you see a post(er) more intent in personal attacks, sarcasm towards the OP versus trying to be helpful you can simply ignore them.

I would much rather read a well versed shorthand message that gives me information than a well written one that doesn't. I'm just long winded enough to try to use better grammar. LOL That being said, I take good information in any form I can get it.

Well said. I sort of see his point but in a way it could be interpreted as nit picking. Many of us are prone to typo's. I do try to reread what I post as a courtesy for the reader. Many times I screw up, unintentionally. But ultimately our goal should be of communicating our thoughts so that others may see our point and hopefully give us the feedback that we are looking for.

Occasionally, folks refer to post numbers in a thread, and that feature probably threw things off.

Blank is better than irritating......
