    Thanks,

    I stand by my initial post, although I would have preferred to have added it to an already existing discussion, which I was not aware of because I did not realize this board had so many sub-forums.

    As far as posting errors, this is simply entertainment and I sometimes don't have a great deal of time to proof read.

    As long as I can be understood and not sound completely illiterate, I'm not going to lose any sleep over small errors.

    Cheers

    I think my bad spelling and dreadful grammar gives some of my "friends" on facebook something to do.. half of them wouldn't bother going on there if it wasn't to correct my bloopers....

    I can't seem to get the editing to work--I hit the editing arrow, the new empty page comes up, I fill in reason why and hit the edit button again and the page just stares at me! HEP! HEP! HEP! please

    You need to hit the Save or Save Changes button when you're done.

    I rarely proofread messageboard posts before submitting, simply because I'm apt to make things worse. I'll change the part that's broken, sure, but I'll neglect to re-punctuate or to make the old verbs agree with the new nouns.
