I am starting to notice some of our newer members are posting and using text language.
There are a few reasons why we do not allow this:
- It can be ambiguous
- This is forum has members from all over the world. The English language is complicated enough without complicating it further.
- It appears sloppy and does the writer no favours.
To remind you, this is the present rule on the subject:
Text language and abbreviations
We like clear communications and ask members to refrain from using text language (M8, thx, ppl etc.) If it is worth writing please spend the time to write your message clearly and to the best of your abilities. We are not looking for the ‘Queens English’ and understand that English may not be your first language. Please make an effort. Your post today may be part of a ‘how to’ or ‘sticky’ the future.
