Does this bug you?

Does it bother you when someone posts a question or long answer with no or next to no, punctuation? It drives me nuts! I don't expect perfection. I am sure my grammar, sentence structure, spelling is not always perfect, but geez! I think it makes the poster look like an uneducated idiot who won't even try! My second grader does better than some of the Moms on here! Am I alone in this?

  • I mostly agree. I do try to use good punctuation and I am a pretty good speller. I think some people just hurry and don't worry about it. But it does make you wonder how smart they are.

  • Yes, I agree with you. It drives me crazy with how some posters word questions and comments. Read over what you typed before submitting it.

  • before i actually read a post, i scan it. If i dont see one period or comma in the whole thing, i click the back button and go to the next one!!! i hate trying to read things with no punctuation!

  • You know what is really funny, anon 11:26? I was NOT talking about you (not in particular, any way), because I have NO IDEA who you are! But isn't it funny that you assumed I was?

  • I hate that people on here don't use the spell check or can't punctuate a sentence properly. What goes through my mind is if they can't write properly how are they going to raise a child.
