Posted annoyances...

Post by aldan »

Here is a partial list I found online of some basic things that can make reading a posting really, REALLY annoying.

1.) MANY READERS DON'T LIKE ALL CAPS. IT'S HARD TO READ AND SEEMS LIKE YOU'RE SHOUTING! So, please don't use them.

2.) use punctuation its hard to read stuff that doesnt have any commas capital letters periods or apostrophes

3.) Usee yur spall chacker. Its annyang to try to reede constent spalling misstakes.

4.) Re-read your e-mail message before you send it out. I don't know how many times I thought I had everything just right and then found something that was way out of place when I went back over the document.

5.) When replying to a message, don't quote back the entire message if you are just responding to one or two points. Just include what you are responding to.

6.) Don't use short hand. You know, things like "r u going to stp by ltr" can be hard to read. Don't B lzy, typ the whole wrd!

7.) Here's one I've found that I have problems with when I post here on the site: Keep your paragraphs fairly short! Some of mine have been more than a little extensive, and they tend to cover a horde of different topics.

If you have any others that you find worth the death penalty, please post them here!!

Moi?? :angel:

Nope. Actually, while yours was one of the names I thought of when I read that list I'd received in my email, it was only because so many of the posters here don't bother with the "spelling cow" as they should.... *aldan grins* It sort of goes along with all of the "gr8 typn 4 uus on_" that one seems to see so often... even though this is a site dedicated to what??

8.) Don't correct other poster's spelling and punctuation unless they ask you to. Not only is this considered a bigger Netiquette smeg up than not taking the time to spell check your message, for many people English is not their primary language.

FM, I'm sure you did that one on porpoise (kinda like how I did here, what?)....

Thank you Ariel. I very rarely see a problem with your posts. You seem to pay attention to what you type, and I'm guessing you look at the screen instead of at the keys as you type....

Q, :smt022 :smt105 :smt086 :smt087 :smt088 :smt107 :smt009 :shaking: :( :cry: :oops: :silent: *aldan runs away and looks for a place to cry where his "studly manliness" won't be questioned*

I don't need to use "spelling cow" anymore, I now have Google tool bar that has "spell check", so I can use that instead, if I remember.....

It is always good for someone to pick up any spelling mistakes in any stories I post...feel free to do so...
