I would recommend drilling down to the intent of their posts to criticizing their spelling and syntax. Heaven forbid I should try to post to a French language board in my high school French.

But that's just me.
You find that kind of criticism somewhat disturbing; I didn't look at it that way-
Thanks for bringing that to light. It's good to consider others always; your right.

You mentioned that some of the folks that come here; their first language isn't English.
English was hard enough for me to learn and German has been even harder so now; Frankbell I can appreciate what you have said and I will think on these things before I question another new members 'questions'

I did not mean to be overly critical or impose stupidity and if it has been taken that way I'm sorry
