I just read this posting about posting posts. All I can say is 'Ouch!'
My primary language is English, however the rules in that post are pretty strict! For example:
This point doesn't make sense grammatically. There is no reason listed for why you shouldn't use double spaces after a period. In American schools (at least when I went to school) it was taught that there is always two spaces after a period, exclamation point, question mark and so-on. Maybe they changed this in later years, but trying to unlearn something driven into your head by school teachers is difficult.Why you should never, ever use two (or more) spaces after a period.
That 'Rules' post almost looks similar to something DutchDaemon wrote many years ago on the FreeBSD forums. He was a stickler for grammar and spelling -- don't know if he is still.
Anyway, I will try to conform to these rules, but due to serious brain injuries and some tough illnesses throughout my life, I may actually make a mistake or two. Hope everyone can forgive me!
