View Full Version : Spelling Counts

A general note ...

Please quit using the 'leet sp33k'. It is not elite, and it just makes the posts hard to read. In the long term it is going to ruin the ability to search for past postings, especially if key terms start getting morphed into gibberish. Nobody minds the occasional joke or comment, but start threads with a obvious misspellings is just lazy and/or inconsiderate.

In the real world spelling does count. And so does grammar, punctuation, the correct use of the shift key, etc. This isn't a high school English class and you are not going to be graded on your essays, but how you communicate does leave an impression on others.

Seriously though, (in another forum) I've seen people completely ingore threads solely because they're illegible! (Like 4 paragraphs condensed into an all lower-cap, typo-filled blob with little puctuation!!)
