Posting and Editing in the FreeBSD Forums II: spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc.
This forum aspires to appeal to serious users, developers, programmers, administrators, hobbyists, and more generally: adults. We prefer that you write as such. This forum is not for children or texting teenagers! Respect your fellow forum members by posting readable messages in a way that people from all countries and all ages can understand.
Remember: poorly written posts with bad spelling, capitalization, and punctuation make it even more difficult for non-English speakers to understand your message! Invest one extra minute to write a readable and understandable post. Note that a lot of people can only read the forums using translation services, and these services do not understand words like "im", "id", "thats", "dont", "cant", "w8", "pls", etcetera!
For example, it's:When using Internet acronyms, limit yourself to the better known ones and always put them in capitals, so people understand that they have a special meaning. For example: IMHO, IMO, IIRC, BTW, AFAIK, ROFL, LOL.
