The vast majority of members post excellently, and as this is an English speaking forum based in the United Kingdom, we find even those for whom English is not their native tongue, they too use good grammar. I ask new members to add correct punctuation into their posts please, and kindly give the English language the proper respect it deserves.
We do not mind the odd typing or spelling mistake, but posting with not a single comma or full stop is like reading the page of a book without pausing to draw a breath. As you might imagine, it could kill you trying to read something none stop without taking a breather.
So if anyone posts a question without adding a question mark, or does not end a sentence, then I will simply not reply to that post, as English was always my strongest subject and it irks me to see our great language abused in any way; particularly if the person posting is a fellow Brit. Adding the correct pucntuation marks makes for easier reading and will get your posts answered by more members, whereas not using it may get your posts ignored completely.
