Here's a short essay on grammar:
We've all seen the posts by people who are trying to save time, have spent too much time IMing etc. Examples:
i=I
2=to or too
plz=Please
u=You
ALLCAPS= all capitals
Example message:
im loking 4 sum nu trix 2 du PLZ REPLI CWICLY
That was a bit exaggerated but you get the point. When people see this sort of post they think that the poster is rude and immature and then may not want to answer your question. It won’t take very much time to type out the entire word and you will gain more respect on the forums. Maybe because we accept the use of TT and IT we will accept bad grammar. Using better grammar will improve the quality of the forums.

For those of you who post messages like this: We understand you are trying to save time etc. but it is better for you, better for the rest of us and better for the forums if you use good grammar in your posts.

Okay, #1: Change the title. If you don't, people will suspect that you're a noob, and therefore not "help" you.
#2: I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this.
#3: I completely agree with you.

I am not being funny here but some people like my self have dyslexic and may find it very hard to do grammar but we give it a go that’s where you should give us credit as well as not being able to spell like where to put full stops and where to start with a capital letters you got to be careful how you word this and make it fair for everyone It took me a long time to tell others I had dyslexic because I was scared of them taking the mick as I grow up I might get some doing that now but some of us are not doing it to save time but it makes it sound like we should not able to shear our interest in magic you should be encouraging people to come here and shear there views make me fill that I can not add to the form because I fill my spelling is not good another an you do not understand people me its very hard to thank you for your time

Dyslexia shouldn't be an excuse. I have dyslexia, but I overcome it.

What he was mostly speaking about (atleast from what I assume) is more about the people who just are too lazy to spend anytime in trying to post. People who won't use full words, or who spaz out and add hundreds of exclamation points after their words.

I understand what you are saying. All that I am saying is dont let it become an excuse or a crutch. It just takes a little longer to get things done. So, as long as you give it a try, and actually try to use proper grammar, the best that you can, then no one will really have a problem with you.

The problem is mainly with the younger members who shorten everything because they are too lazy to take the time and try to form complete thoughts.
