    Here is a true story, I have not a clue how that sticky tongue dude got in my post. I did not put him in there. It's like he has been waiting for me to write something he approves of to show his face.

    IMO - This is not a very productive thread, not everyone has the best education in the world and to some punctuation was never taught. I can understand if words are spelled with "Z's" ie: "wuz up" or "dis and dat" - and it is extreme where it is difficult to read and understand - but if someone really doesn't know, are we better by writing a thread about how annoying it is or by setting a good example and punctuating and spelling things to the best of our abilities -

    So to the O/P the next time you are bored, teach someone to read or write but don't complain about those who struggle and take no positive action to make a difference in the world -

    Yep well said TP! I will never call anyone out on their grammar on the internet. You have no idea where that person is coming from or what they have been through. Besides using true proper grammar takes a long time to type out. I have no evidence to back that up.......just sayin
