I broke my left wrist June 9, had a plate and screws put in on July 1, and have been in so much pain since then that I am only typing the simplest words. I purchased a nook because I could hold it with one hand. I used to be proud of my grammar, spelling etc, but now I am just grateful to be typing at all. Hunt and peck is not fun but just responding is bringing me joy. I have spent many hours just reading all the enjoyable posts on this forum. Thanks Frog, Doug et al.

I think some of our guys are being a bit hard on themselves i.e. ABthree, Alan, etc. If the intent of the poster is sincere and well meaning or the question/comment is legitimate and not a repeat of one asked just two threads prior, they are not overtly critical on grammar. I have seen many many constructive responses to questionably structured inquiries.
A smart person may judge one's intellilect by their grammar skills, but a true judge of character realizes that as an indicator of education alone, not true intelligence.
