Noticing some poor English...

Not to step out of line or offend anyone, but why am I noticing some poor English on the site all of a sudden? Do not get me wrong, I am not the best English speaker or writer. However, considering the fact that Persona Paper expects us to send in an article before being registered to the site, I expected only good English here. Some of the posts now remind me of how Bubblews was before they implemented their new rule. It is quite frustrating to read a post and not understand what the author is trying to say. But hey, who am I to say anything anyway... I would like to hear your views on this though, do you think I am wrong in saying these things, or do you agree?

let admin know about the posts you have in mind

I asked about this and they have been checking. I was told that if it really sticks out and you just can't understand a post, to use the contact us link and report it. They will respond back as to what they found and their decision, at least they did with me.

Yeah - but just want to make sure that it's an issue of poor grasp or faulty presentation of English rather than unorthodox usage.

I know I just get lazy sometimes about proof reading what I write.

Sometimes I can't catch it all, but have been noticing some issues and HAVE been flagging those posts. If something stands out at you, don't hesitate to email me. I think my patience on poor English is getting to be really thin, and I'm going to start being super mean Admin here shortly.

You are correct. PP strives to have quality content, and that means posts are written in proper, or at least easily understandable, English. Nobody is perfect, and I'm sure I make mistakes myself (I'm a crap typist, so there's that), so we do forgive minor errors. But if something is not easily readable, it should be reported. We need to bring these things to the attention of the admins when we run across them.
