As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!

The U shaped Lounge is a hotbed of thinly disguised racist and nasty views fed by those who trawl the likes of the Mail to find evidence to support them.Consequently I find it difficult to help or engage on the site knowing that below the surface is this rich vein of unpleasantness.
mmmm that sounds like criticism to me
erneboy and erneboy like this.

What don't you understand about dyslexia?

I could have meant queue of trolls.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!

For those who are happy to dismiss the importance of punctuation (and believe that as long as the meaning intended by the originator of a piece of text can be understood, there isn't a problem), I offer the following as an illustration of the possibilities for confusion.

Without punctuation:

A woman without her man is useless.

With punctuation:

A woman; without her, man is useless.

With alternative punctuation:

A woman without a man, is useless.

Punctuation does matter.

However, the need to highlight ambiguity in a piece of text is optional.
