David, whatever keyboard used is no excuse, why should anyone have to translate bad writing, which projects a lack of respect for the reader? As for writing skills, not singling you out, but anyone expecting to find decent employment in this economy better improve all their skills.
This isn't Facebook, it's a mature discussion group. Of course I don't speak for the entire community, I'm just one member, but it's been my experience in forums like Firearms Talk that the members are a cut above average. During the holidays there's been a flood of new people who obviously are very young judging from their poorly written posts. What I've observed is a lot of wasted "conversation" trying to pull out coherent bits and pieces from their writing. This takes away time from interesting threads.
If you want good answers and to be treated as a peer your reader must understand your questions. And must feel like your question was important enough to you to take the time to write it well. Maybe I unloaded on you but your reply to me seemed a bit testy, probably because I misinterpreted due to the way it was written. Sorry if I offended you, I don't mean to single you out.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
