well rockstar is on my ignore list, so I only see them when he is quoted. But search any of his posts, none of them have ever resembled a rational thought or a comprehendable sentence.

This is an example from new dodge that prompted this thread.

I am sure there are plenty more, like I said the grammar doesn't bother me if you at least take the time to add some sort of punctuation, paragraph or sentence structure and make sense out of what you are trying to say.

I hate to sound like the anal-retentive dweeb that I really am, but communicating in standard written U.S. English is a dying art form. I proofread my son's homework and continually correct "Text-ese" that creeps into his writing. E-mails sent from work to clients look as though they were composed by someone with a closed-head injury. Why would anyone expect different on Internet forums?

It is hard to proofread your own work because you read it how you think it in your head, but that is no excuse for some of what I have seen.

My absolute favorite part of tapatalk is anybody on your ignore list flat out doesn't show up. It doesnt even give the option to view their posts. Now if only their threads were completely ignored as well...

No need to ask. You posted in this thread. Not capitalizing screen names does not show poor grammar or spelling.

But jesus christ do people like newdodge, rockstar, and some other less active poster's even read the shit they type?
The missed point is that YOU(kickstand) are saying is,everybody else sucks at grammar, spelling, and punctuation. But then YOU misspell a few words, and you got called out!

If I was employed by GL4x4 I would make an effort, but I'm not therefore I wont.

Email sent in the office is proof read, posts on GL4x4 are proof skimmed occasionally.

This just shows that you are naturally lazy and will take the easy way out. Don't you take personal pride in yourself?
