Joost, thanks for asking this question.

You're welcome to let me or any of my moderators know about "bad attitudes" in email, PM or by report post. We'll handle it from there.

Thankfully, 99.99% of all posts are OK. I'd say it's a rare day when the mods or I have to take action about language or attitude.

I have a feeling that .01% of problem users has a strong correlation to age (young).

Joost...use the report function on these.

When users correct grammar, it invariably causes a fight. Fights between text talkers and moderators end very quickly.

Non-native English speakers get leeway on trying to communicate in our bastard language...except the Dutch, because you all speak 8 languages by age 3

Hmmm...

I would think of one exception: the usage of French is highly discouraged :D

Hahaha, Abscate, I only just now discovered your reply, hahaha. Hmmm I will have to keep practicing then.
Should I have any doubts about English grammar (seriously: differences between British and American spelling are hard to keep track of) I could still always try and explain to you in Dutch :D

You may have to explain several times since I suffer from meervoudigepersoonlijkheidsstoornissen....which has nothing to do with a radiator brand
