I agree farmer! The only reason I spell certain words correctly is because certain picky people on the internet pounded it into my head over and over again!

Quote:Made sense to me so I think you are doing fine. I think this is really what the op was about, not so much "proper" paragraphs as just hitting the return key from time to time.

I made a B in my English 101 and 102 classes because I worked my butt off and I think the teachers appreciated it. I certainly have no talent for grammar.

Quote:You did perfect! I didnt learn how to use the computer until I was over 30.... and forums did 100% more for that than my ex's nagging or "how to" books ever did ...don't anyone ever think we are picking on you alone...
I dont care about capital letters or commas or spelling (I can read over that) just hit the enter button every now and then...thats all

Debi is one of the folks on BYC I truly want to meet, even if it's just for a high-five on literacy issues. Much of it is simply to be able READ the posts, not to "improve people."

Y'all can exist in yer own styles of communicating in the written word but please understand this is reading for understanding. I cannot help, comment, or commiserate if I have to maneuver through huge chunks of uninterrupted words.

Well, I could, but it doesn't make me WANT to, so much. I'd far rather be able to get the point right away and have an unadulterated response to the content of any particular post.

As to the quote function, how about editing BIG hunkin' quoted posts down to just the part ya really wanna highlight? Takes a bit of effort... Oh, goodness, effort.

One of these days, soon I hope, there will be a rabbit show in your neck of the woods and you, me, HHandbasket and FarmerLew can sling back a beer or two on your new porch.

You guys make me laugh!

Debi, you sure know how to turn on a hornet's nest out of the worse in people and then appease them with your brownies!
