Sometimes posters seem to forget to use punctuation. Or capitalization. Or paragraphs. I find posts missing these things very difficult to read, in fact I don't read them, after or line or two.

I'm probably not the only one who tends to skip over poorly typed posts. Which means a lot of good information is most likely being missed. Stories too.

So....when you have something to say, surely it wouldn't be too much trouble to take a few extra moments to ensure that your post is readable?

Thank you for bringing it up. I've been thinking the same thing, but I'm not able to ask for these things as politely as you do. So I decided not to, because I'd surely offend people

Hehe, I usually stick by my ability to post and come out coherently, but I slip up and forget stuff sometimes

Thank you for bringing that up. I must admit that I too will not bother reading poorly written posts.

I try to, but it exhausts me. Sometimes I skim through and sometimes I don't read them at all.

This is so funny, because in jr. high, I was the one among friends always complaining about spelling and such. My friends would hand me their essays, I'd go through them and correct them before they handed them in to our teacher.

I was quite the nerd

I completely agree with this. I find it so hard to read posts that aren't typed well, especially when the posters start using "text speech" or tYpInG lYkE dIs (which takes entirely too long to read and write). Plus, I am not eager to take the advice of someone who does not spell properly.
