Default Posting Etiquette

I would like to try and encourage people on this forum to use proper grammar, punctuation, paragraphing etc in order to be understood and get the best out of the forum.

My written English isn't great, but I do understand the concept of a paragraph to make my reading not too hard on the eyes.

It's this kind of thing that I struggle with:

"Hey i av a problem wif ebay basicly what is they limited me acount then i opened another den dey limited that one i ogt me sister to open one dey limited hers 2 den i foned eb and said wtf dey ask what me name i say george smith dey say, george it says u are 78yrsold but u don't sound it, i tells them i old man but got squeaky voice, dey tell me to send documentz igets my gramps to send his pension book but tippex out his name & right mine instead, they said i is no gud and band 4 life. ineed to get back on eby, i sell genyouin iphones that i dropship from Vietnam, where am i goin wrong"

All non-English speaking people are excluded, but English speakers there is no excuse!

I try to encourage my self to stop typing in chat/text message form. I cannot tell you how many times i wrote a paper in school and used "u" instead of you. Or used "b/c" instead of because. And the list goes on and on and on..... and on... anddd on.

I knew that you guys wouldn't get the stiff lipped, upper class twit reference in the second half of my statement... I thought that the more "experienced" (yeh, euphemism...) people like GrannyT might understand it straight away though.
