    Are you put off replying to poorly written posts?

    It's very simple if you wan to help then help. If you thinks it's too much trouble for you to read a post that isn't 100% correct Queens English just scroll on past, maybe the next person along will help without being judgemental.

    I'm not talking about a post being 100% correct. I'm talking about the posts where it's that illegible through spelling mistakes, missing grammar, text speak, missing spaces etc you have to read it three times to try and make sense of it and then you're still not sure what they mean.

    If it's that bothersome to you why would you read it three times?

    Like I've said if you don't help then someone else will.

    Because I want to help. If the OP can't be bothered to take some time and effort on their post however, why should I or any other member be expected to?

    I would agree and I do feel some sympathy for them if English isn't their primary language. More often that not though, I get the impression the OP is English themselves but for whatever reason, makes a complete hash of the post.

    You don't have to help, you help because you want to help.

    Bad spelling or grammar doesn't really bother me because I know my own isn't perfect.

    If I can help on a post I will regardless of how it's written.

    Text type is the one which does me in. Puts me right off to the point where I want to reply with "if you type real words you may get some help" - but I am good and don't.

    Asking the same questions........... asking the same questions............

    Not so much the same question when a thread has had a massive cull as the answer and question may have been removed, but the other day someone asked a question which had been answered only two or three posts previous to theirs.... now that p*sses me off as they just can't be bothered to read anything and just want an answer.

    Sitting on the fence as I do.... it is very hard I think for all of those who want to help and are willing to help when they have to fight through a really bad post. My spelling is shite and usually has a load of red lines under what type. Some are typos and I miss them, but on a whole I will try my best to understand what the OP is asking.... but some really have no care taken with them at all. Even a badly spelled post but with more info than "how do i flsh" would be nice.

    The last say or always right..........

    I try my hardest not to be seen with an attitude of always being right, because, although I am never wrong, I am not perfect and don't actually know much compared to others so will openly say that I was wrong and will say sorry. If I am unsure, I will say I am unsure and give what I think to be right / true but when I am wrong, or learned something new I will hold my hands up and say.

    No individual knows everything but as a collective who can work together, we can make a good team with a lot of knowledge about everything.

    If I can get the jist of what someone is asking then I'll answer. Or, if their post is a bit confusing, you can usually tease some sense out of them. Benefits of having done time in a call centre I guess.
