Re: Spelling and grammar

I have a German friend at work who said to me: If you can speak three languages, you are trilingual. If you can speak two languages, you are are bilingual. If you speak one language, you are English.

I'm not going to be hyper-critical of those who write in English when it isn't there first language, but I'm afraid I can't say the same for English speakers; they ought to know better than to shrug it off as 'I'm typing fast and don't check before hitting Submit' or 'It looks semi-legible, so it'll do.'

Sort it out guys.

On a lighter note, we are human and are not perfect (including myself ), but spending time before submitting a thread/post can save so much of this tit-for-tat bickering.

Indeed, you are not perfect.

And you have it. I don't profess to be perfect.

Re: Spelling and grammar

I have another typical "way of saying" during a hard work:
- "i'm not changing light bulbs to the fireflies"...

Re: Spelling and grammar

I think the spelling here is generally on a very high level. Ive seen so many German messsage boards and the spelling there can be really really horrible, especially (but not only) when young users are posting. I believe they are so used to SMS cellphone texting that they cannot write a complete error-free sentence, or they have no desire to do so.
