I have, on numerous occasions, come across posts that, in my humble opinion, would be more appropriate for chat boards rather than for a forum instructors and educators community. These posts are poorly written, lacking any discernible writing style, and fail to convey any meaningful message to readers, particularly learners and knowledge seekers. For instance, the use of abbreviations like "r u" and "nd" instead of "are you" and "and" further hampers comprehension.
Therefore, I would like to offer my sincere advice to some of our post writers: I recommend reading two highly valuable sources on English writing style:
Keep in mind that many people here don't speak (or write) English as a first language and may be teaching in another language all-together. I'd rather people try to get their point across as best they can then become self-conscious about their writing.
This is a world-wide community and first, we have to be accepting!
