Look I'm reprinting my response to Kerry's post below.

If you want to transform the gist of this (or Kerry's) thread into an Orwellian or Stalinistic leaning that you feel needs nipping in the bud, you need a life. Kids... Bikes. People, let's talk in a way we can all understand. Not too much to ask.

The intent of the Kerry's post is that, basically, it's hard to follow what they guy (some posters) is (are) saying. Is it too much to ask that someone try and get their point across in a way that others can understand? Let us all agree that one must be clear and at least try to be cogent. That's all. This isn't about ridiculous pedantism or sniping about spelling. Kerry's point is well taken from my perspective. Tuffnick is enthusiastic, no doubt, but we can't understand what he's trying to say. Perfect grammar is one thing, basic grammar is another. Let's get a grip here.

Well, I expected some responses, but nothing like this. And Lazy posted fully 1/3 of the nearly 60 replies! Seems there are about three camps on this topic. Those who see comments like mine as pompous, asinine, snobish, and irrelevant. Those who agree. And those who couldn't care less but do like a good brawl. I was never asking for perfect grammar and spelling, with zero typos. My apologies to those I offended, though it doesn't seem like I'll get much foregiveness. Life is hard, then you die.
