Come on trip is it really that bad i mean i know that it can get tiresome having to read a post over and over again i get what you mean about the punctuation it can be pretty agrevating sometimes especially when you cant understand the meaning of what the person is saying i always give the person the benefit of the doubt and just let it go sometimes you can read the entire post and not understand what the person is trying to say i just read what i wrote and yes its pretty bad i get what you mean :-)

Might have been more-clear that way.

See now, Your dumping on a man that is pretty smart. If he writes like he talks, I'm fine w/ that. The running sentence B.S. is not good as the intention of the post is usually lost. We "talk" here. That is the name of the forum.

Whats the old saying??? Use it or loose it.

I guess I've lost some of it when it comes to composing some posts on the internet. I forget to use commas, capitol letters, and I mispell words at times. I also have seen that I've recently (the last 3 years) get caught up in run ons,syntax, and other grammer faux pas more and more. Could be age, TIA's, crappy key board, speed of typing, and just not doing it for where it counts for many years.

I bet someone reading this, who knows, can find some grammer errors in this post.
So you typed before? When I was is high school a guy would get beat up for taking typing. Why are you posting this? I'm sure your not the intended target. Everyone makes mistakes, that is what spell check is for.
I'm a chicken pecker typer myself. My nephews that are Marines use correct grammer. As they say it, It seperates us from them. Without periods, comma's, What are we. Your posts are fine. Look at the above and see why!

Only at the workplace, and even there, I hear those expressions come up.

Grammar says alot about an individual and how they are perceived. It is important to be able to write with proper grammar and diction. Proof reading your communications is also very important. I have a co-worker who tried to write about "growing guest counts" in a company-wide email. He didn't proof and didnt put in the second "o".
