    I am the same way...

    Spelling something wrong, is not what were going at. But spelling several words wrong and no punctuation in the same thread just looks poor. We are all adults and know what is good enough to leave out there and what is not. This doesn't have to be a big deal. It will just be another edge BGP's has over all the other boards out there.

    Not really, remember, America is a Republic, not a Democracy and this site is the same way.

    And I wonder how many times the posts in this thread we re-read for mistakes before the "Submit" button whas clicked?
    Can't speak for everyone else but I always read what I have typed before I hit the submit button. Several times I will read something I have posted and say "I spelled this wrong I need to edit that." Then of course go back and edit it.

    All we are asking is put a little effort into what you are posting and don't just do it half way. Make it so everyone does not have to read a post a dozen times just to understand what you are trying to say.

    I'm not worried about that at all. We also went through something similar to this when we went to the paid format.

    I don't see what the big deal is. Its not exactly rocket science. It does make the process of communicating a thought much easier and clearer to the reader. I think it will clear up many misinterpretations that are a result of poor grammatical efforts. I like it. :creepy:
