Ajosephg, I agree with you 100%. I too am bothered by poor English (except when English is obviously not the person’s native tongue). I see poor English used everywhere, not just on these forums; I see it on TV, newspapers, engineering documentation. Using bad English sends the wrong message to readers. It says “you are not important enough for me to make the effort”. I admit my English is not always perfect, but I make the effort by using spell check and other tools at my disposal. I do this because I want to communicate as clearly as I can, so others will understand me. Of all the subjects we learned in school, our native language is the most important. This is true in other countries as well. I’m not a language snob, but the English language is the most descriptive and beautiful. People everywhere are trying to destroy the language; from rappers to Ifone scripters. Why are you doing this? Sorry for the rant. This just happens to be my pet peeve.
