Yes. Between 10k and 100k are the usual values.

I'm not sure why I should spend time to do your legwork if you're obviously not willing to spend time to write half-way decent English.
It's real hard work to decipher your post! Give us a break!

The attitude stinks.
Imagine the thoughts of a new Member:-
"I don't respect the Members to whom I shall address my questions and I will show that attitude by banging away at the keyboard and not even bother to check my spelling before I post the enquiry.

Heck, I'll not even bother to re-read my post after I have posted it, "they" don't deserve any better."

Do we want english speaking/writing Members setting an example like that, when there are so many non english speakers/writers on this Forum looking for an example to follow?

Well Number One is new and looking for advice.
I have given "my advice" !!!

I agree with your assessment. That is the sign of the times, that people don't consider how disrespectful they behave. It may be a logical consequence of social networks where good behaviour decreases the communication speed, because it means to think before and while you write and to check what you have written. It must also appear as a waste of time to use the search function when it is so easy to post a question.

Well, all we can do is give a good example by behaving better, because reproaching people for their bad behaviour rather scares them off than arouse the wish to improve it.

Andrew,

You obviously haven't been involved in employing young people over the last ten years.

The spelling / grammar war is long lost.

I believe that texting on a mobile is the ultimate evolutionary purpose behind homo sapien's opposable thumbs.

I am not an employer and never have been.
I have worked with all kinds of attitudes and some are intolerable.

Does that mean we Members need to tolerate the same on the Forum?

If Members choose to continue with bad behaviour they will get binned or even worse.

No, not at all!

But that is what it is like out there among a certain section of the population.
