    First post, but I had to comment. What is it with all the smart remarks around here? Someone posts a question asking for help, and all he gets is cr*p. I guess I'll do more reading than posting. ;)

    Thank you for thinking my comment was smart. I thought someone may not like it. To many times I am reading comments and questions and it is disturbing how much the language is butchered. I'm have a tough enough time with it myself, but atleast I try. I is easier to shortcut when typing but kids are starting to think it is acceptable in school to write like this. Also, it may be fine on here but if someone wants a succesfull business, they need to consider thier overall presentation. Just trying to help.

    You have to try to understand this from a newb perspective...I have spent weeks soaking up the info in this forum (great forum btw!), but when you notice a high ratio of smart-aleck replies, it puts a person off from asking questions. No one wants to be made to feel like a jackass just because they asked a question. :rolleyes:

    The way I see it.. This is a forum with a lot of professionals, with a lot a valuable advice. Why not, when your asking a question, speak like your a professional. It is a little sad to see all this misspelled words and bad English when you have the tools right in front of you... When I post I always use the spell check. I just think more people should give it a try. I think if you act like a pro you will be treated like a pro. Dat just my 2 cent. Ya git it know?:rolleyes:

    Well im not a teacher on English so sorry about the language and I gonna try the spelling check so I don do so many errors.

    But the thing is that like JLEIGH said there's to many smart asses here and I just look for the professionals that can give some good advise so in the future please if any one in here don't have nothing important to replay don't replay. :nono:

    And the questions is on the air.

    Good buy, about $1100 is the best you can do here on a 6 x 12. But everybody is buying trailers to get materials to their house to repair it.

    Well, if you are going to criticize someone or anyone on this forum (or anywhere else in life) you should make sure that you have the right to do so. From your post above, and the text therein, I'm not sure you should be so quick to pull the trigger. Let's see...

    1. "I thought someone may not like it."..... It should be.... "I thought someone might not like it." - INCORRECT USE OF VOICE

    2. "I'm have a tough enough time with it myself, but atleast I try."..... It should be..... "I'm HAVING" or "I HAVE"....improper use of a contraction. AND, "atleast" is two words, not one....should be "at least"....

    3. "I is easier to shortcut when typing but kids are thinking it is acceptable in school to write like this."..... it should be.... "It is easier to take shortcuts when typing, but kids think it is acceptable to write like this in school." YOU FORGOT THE "T" IN "IT", THERE SHOULD BE A COMMA AFTER "TYPING" AND YOU ENDED THE SENTENCE INCORRECTLY, WHICH I FIXED FOR YOU.

    4. In your next to last sentence you spelled the words "THEIR" and "SUCCESSFUL" incorrectly.... "E" BEFORE "I" RULE.... and THERE are TWO "C'S" AND TWO "S'S" AND ONLY ONE "L" in the word SUCCESSFUL

    Still think you should be making sarcastic comments about spelling, grammar, etc....?
