    Actually, all it takes is a little bit of self editing.....Read it back to yourself, out loud....If you say, "What the ----" you probably ought to put in a comma or two.

    Deb, when I opened your thread and began reading, I started wondering where the rant was! [​IMG] But then I got it. Sometimes it can get pretty annoying... I try to read as much as possible (if it's really important or I'm really interested), but a lot of the time it's not feasible (for me). I'll read it and/or skim it just enough to get the basic idea.

    Actually the grammar and mis-spellings don't both me near as much as trying to use a ruler on my monitor.

    To each their own. If someone is scared off from posting because I asked to please break out paragraphs, there is more than meets the surface going on.

    I said NOTHING about grammar!!!!

    Good grief. A mini-rant was all this was.

    Well Debi, I would say some people just love to disagree no matter what is said.
