How to Write in Complete Sentences

First of all, I'd like to apologize to all of you that this doesn't apply to. My thanks go out to you.

Now, on to the subject matter...what is it with people on this website who mange to **** up everything they try to say? I'm not talking about little mistakes here and there, I could care less about those, but some of you write so poorly I don't even know what the hell you're trying to say. (You know who you are.) Example:

Quote:
The only point is that makin a supra is the dumbest thing you can do and the bike wasent even fixed and it was stoke and the supra wasent lol

I mean, what the hell is this person trying to say?


This post is just a request that you at least attempt legibility.
Here is a simple test:

1. Proofread. Read your post out loud. Is this how you sound when you normally speak? Remember; don't pause unless there is a comma, period, or some other form of punctuation. If you don't put them in, we'll assume that you are speaking really really fast.

2. Cut and paste your post in Microsoft Word. This program is amazing, it will catch any mistakes that you made in spelling. If you're really lucky, it will even catch some grammar mistakes such as run-on sentences.

3. If you're not sure of the meaning of a word, look it up! www.dictionary.com works great!

This is what I used to do before each and every post, it worked for me, and it can work for you! After you do this enough, you will find that you automatically write well. You'll no longer need to check it and people will treat you with a great deal more respect.
