If it wasn't for the internet, I believe the art of proper writing would be in worse shape.
People from many countries which have a different 1st language are on this website trying valiantly to type sensible posts in English while English
speaking members try to remember the correct way to write as well.
This is all good.
There is plenty of room for improvement, though. I find myself thumbing through a dictionary quite often looking for correct spelling and I have a
Harbrace College Handbook ready in case I need to check my punctuation.
But, then again, it's just me being anal.
I personally dislike the 'there, they're, their' mess.
At least people are trying. That's the best part.
