Should HAdi use Spell Checker?

HAdi keeps doing these polls, but you can hardly tell what he's saying. And the questions are kind of absurd. First, he asks whether he should get a 330i or a Range Rover Sport; then, he announces he bought an Audi S4. Now he posts another poll, asking which we think is better - an S4, M3 or CTS V-Series.

HAdi, no offense...but we can't understand a damn word you are saying!

WHY???

no need to rip someone personally,

there are so many people with poor spelling and grammar on internet message boards that I'm personally worried about the future.

Ward, don't worry, it can't be personal when I don't know him.

As I said in the original post, "HAdi, no offense". That means no offense.

It's hard to follow what he is saying, and it's ok to point that out, even to have some fun with it.

Ok dude, "no offense" but.. don't say "no offense" and then bash someone. It's like making fun of someone and then saying "I didn't mean to offend you."

no offense, but most of the people here need more than a spell checker, me included.

Simply proof reading before submitting would help.

Ward, I couldn't agree with you more. I think email and IM have eroded our country's already poor record on grammar and spelling.

The nice thing about anonymity online is that nobody knows who anyone really is on here.

This is probably the most nonintimidating place to advise someone that they really should work on their spelling, because ones success is in no small part gauged by ones ability to communicate effectively.

Your poll should have read: "Should HAdi use a spell checker?"

The future's been looking bleak to me for several years now for similar reasons.

You think it's difficult to read the typed messages, have you looked at any "average" high scholl graduates' hand written letters?!!! Sometimes I can't tell if my 6 year old or 19 year old wrote the note, and usually there are only 6 digits in the recorded phone number, DOOHH!!!!

When I was reading his polls and threads I just assumed English wasn't his first language.
