If someone is purposely seeking you out in order to rate you down without taking the posts into consideration, that's camping. If all of your posts in a thread are poorly written, hard-to-read drivel, well that's justified in my book, as long as each post is considered on its individual merits. How you present yourself to others has a direct effect on how they react to you. This may not be an "English 101" forum, as you said, but it is a community of people who appreciate posts that don't make your eyes bleed as you try to parse what the writer is trying to say. You've run into this before on your other account, tetsuol, I'm sure. You could make the argument that the content of your post should matter more than how it's presented, and maybe you're right. But, if it's harder to glean that content because it's presented poorly, well, people are going to act on the presentation.
Really, it's not that difficult. I'm not saying that you have to run your posts through an MLA Style Guide before you hit the "Post" button, but clear breaks between sentences, a basic grasp of capitalization, and the elimination of "lol" from your forum-posting vocabulary will go a long way.
Protip: On these forums, you can use a
instead of "lol" and nobody will care. Edited, Dec 29th 2012 9:26am by Spoonless
