who cares about spelling etc where here to talk queen!:)
You should care, because it's good to practice decent grammatical skills. Believe it or not, people like myself sometimes have to struggle to read through a run-on sentence like this one above that lacks punctuation. The second post in this topic is no exaggeration. Few people want to spend time trying to break the sentences into their proper groupings. Can I go so far as to say that posters with such grammar issues are rarely taken seriously?
Don't take this personally - but for example, you wrote "where" instead of "we're". If you wrote that on an essay in University, you would get your paper back with a 0. Better than that, if you wrote that on a resume for a job, it would immediately end up in the company's garbage pile. Well, recycling pile, if it's a decent company.
Seeing grown adults, assumingly high school graduates, who are unable to discern between it's/its, to/two/too, your/you're, and weather/whether just seem to baffle me. Yes, I understand that not everyone has the ability to completely connect language to their thoughts, but that's not an excuse to keep themselves from learning to write properly.
It's generally accepted that we should just be polite, so we don't comment often enough - but the truth is, it drives many people up the wall. So there, that's the one and only time I'll go on a grammar rant here. I've been wanting to do it since the day I joined.

Yes, and in fact, someone from Sarrraaabrucken would surely agree.
