    Just a rant...

    This is NOT directed at non-English speakers. I can barely speak English sometimes (and it is my native language) and the thought of having to maneuver through a forum in a non-native language must be difficult, to say the least.

    I've read about 5 posts today that I could barely get through without wanting to strangle the poster for not spending an extra 10 seconds on it making it easier to read, understand and, in general, trying not to make themselves look like a complete moron. Now, I'm not expecting Shakespeare but reading through some of the crap that's out there is like translating the conversation between the jive brothers and Mrs. Cleaver in Airplane.

    A couple of tips:

    Succinct points and abbreviation are fine but you're not sending a text message.

    The cooler you try to come off sounding in your post, the bigger a douche bag you truly end up looking like.

    The internet is notorious for crappy grammar.
