Perfect, no. When it gets so bad you have to read it slow or sound it out in your head you have to draw a line somewhere. Some of the posts on the other board made me feel like my eyes were going to bleed.


If someone writes so bad you have to sound it out or read it multiple times I just assume they don't have anything worth reading anyway.

I concur. But I feel like the writer took a page from my journal.

Nice, that was well said. However, did anyone else find it ironic that the author only occasionally used punctuation in all of that?

My "favorite": Brake and break. You can only brake things that are equipped with fucking brakes, and if you're going to take a brake, you better be in a goddamn shop that sells them and I hope you'll get arrested for it.
