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

Guilty, should have proof read my post before posting it as I was using talk to text not manually typing it. I do agree, that proper grammar is very important.
