^^^ Do you mean we should correct people when they do things like using a phrase instead of a complete sentence?

It's not a grammar forum.

It's all intended good fun.

I really hope Agilot feels comfortable posting whatever he wants and feels more the urge to post technical and helpful information as opposed to focusing on the grammatical correctness of what he writes.

I've never seen a single "plier" in anyone's toolbox.

Then again, I'd never seen the MercedesSource tool for this job, which is totally awesome BTW. (BTW is Internet bad grammar for "by the way"... By the way.).

Now I remember why I use to be very active on BW and now I'm not. I came to this thread to see if I could be helpful. Now I just want to slam my head in a car door.

I think punctuation is a bit more important than spelling here. (unless if is "breaks") I can overlook a few misspelled words, but balk when there are 4-5 sentences with no capitalization and no periods or commas. Couple that with someone that has only posted 4 times, didn't complete their profile and it is a recipe for disaster. Expect heavy action. Take cover! We gotta have a little fun around here, but I have also seen some uncalled for jabbing.

Now back to our regular programming.
