Yeah, those obviously aren't "rules" that Chris posted there.  Just a general suggestion to some of the less than adept posters to put a little extra effort into things so we can all understand them a little easier.

His comments don't really apply to the vast majority of folks here, and we could care less of anyone mispells a word or two in their posts, or uses some goofy grammar, or whatnot.  No biggie at all.

But there's some "newbie" folks that pop in from time to time, who don't realize that people here actually like to be able to read what they're posting, and they haul ass through their post like a buzz saw, mispelling, abbreviating things, typing in all caps, or just typing up the most random pile of unreadable horse **** you've ever seen.  Those are the people Chris was mostly directing his comments towards.  Just pointing out to the newer folks to make some effort, since this isn't like some sites where the intelligence factor has all but disappeared.

That's all.  Hell, if spelling and grammar actually counted, we would've had to fire DSJ a long time ago...  :P

Oops, "grammer" was supposed to be "grammar" - that's what happens when I post something when I'm hung over.   But at least most of it was correct and there was effort put into it.   ;)

You're of course welcome here.  We just like to be able to understand what everyone is saying.  It's a lot easier on everyone.

 :P

I was drinking when I read that and I nearly choked. An apt description.

Here at JD, we love you.  Unless you're an *******, or use bad grammar or spelling. ;D
