Forgive me Mother for I have sinned. I have committed the sin of derailment many times since my last confession. If you'll excuse me, I feel a little self-flagellation coming on.

thanks I appreciate that... although to be fair, my normal french would make most cry, I only took a year of it in HS, and barely have occasion to use it.... It helps I know  a little spanish and latin, but I still struggle to find the words I need and have to look them up most times =X

Thank you for necro-posting to this three year old thread. I enjoyed re-reading it, and seeing posts from several people who have left the forum and one who I know has even left Second Life altogether. She lives on in my memory (her SL avatar lives on, that is: she only left SL. She didn't perish), and in the daisies she gave me which are now planted in my front yard. :-)

If people can't understand what you type or misunderstand you because you don't use at least basic grammer and punctuation then you are the one that loses out. I am not saying you have to be perfect but you should at least try to learn or people will eventually tune you out because it is highly annoying.

I did try to adhere to the author's original style, not wanting to put words in his mouth.  It's the type of editing my profession requires.

That's my stance.

I don't expect perfect grammar from people. But I do expect enough that I can comprehend the message.

Also... seriously...

I prefer "also," if you insist on adding more words.
