What are some of the problems that you see in member’s posts? I am not speaking of a specific entry, but rather posting habits that are best to avoid
if you really want your post to be read. Here are some that drive me up the wall and because of which I often will not even bother deciphering the
meaning or reading it at all.
Quotes within quotes within quotes within quotes
I can't tell you how much I like coffee. Yesterday I was at the store and an alien urinated on my shoe. They never did give me a receipt for my
My favorite type of aliens are the blue ones in the M&M packs. They are involved in mind control you know! I think the AARP is actually involved with
M&Ms are not as good as Mars bars so just shut up!
I’m on my coffee break, not my lunch break! If a point or statement is to be referred to then only quote that sentence or small section that is of
relevance. If I wanted to dig through all the fluff then I would have brought my cyber shovel.
Punctuation & capitalization

take a breath of ‘mental air’ between sentences and without capitalization i will be utterly clueless as to where anything either begins or ends i

Excessive religious quoting
Are you attempting to promote a point of view or convert me? I don’t even bother reading these. Please, pretend I am a moronic heathen and break it
down for me in simple language. Go God!
WHY ARE YOU SO ANGRY AND WHO THE HELL ARE YOU YELLING AT! YOUR POST IS NOT SO INTELLECTUALLY SIGNIFIGANT THAT IT NEEDS TO OVERSHADOW EVERYTHING ELSE
ON THE PAGE.
So anything else drive you nuts that you can give an example of?
