    Default Use of the English language in threads

    Dear All

    Recently it has become difficult to read some posts made by members containing what we call, slang or text talk.

    Due to the nature of the club and it's ethos, and out of politeness to other members who may find it difficult to read these abbreviated expressions, we would be grateful if you would not use such talk and use of abbreviated words as used in text messages. As a result some forum messages may be edited or removed and warnings given out to members who continuously refrain from following these rules.

    Thanks

    Admin Team

    I must admit i have really struggled with peoples use of some words, and dont think it looks good to see this if your a potential new members either, plus we do have some old gits that will really sturggle.

    Guys please stick to this, as it will take alot of time and effort to keep on top of this so i hope you appreciate why we are doing this

    First impressions are very important people! We don't want to come across as 13 year girls who love gold hooped earrings.
    Plus, pete and the other old blokes cant make out what is being said about them...!

    Here here! Well said that man.

    I doesn't take that much extra effort to ensure posts are legible.

    all well and good, but if people are using letters that arent even close to the correct spelling this wont work, but may help a little

    It's about time!
    Can I volunteer to be "Spelling-Nazi Moderator"? All I need is a quick-access delete button
