Posting etiquette

Can people please pay attention to some basic posting rules.

1) avoid typing in uppercase - it's bad internet etiquette and constitutes "yelling" . Please use "bold" or "underscore" or even a different colour if you are trying to emphasise a point. Bear in mind that turning the post into a rendition of every font and display format that you can think of is just as visually irritating, "Less is more"

2) Check your reply before committing - some of the recent posts make no sense at all in english and needed a bit more care before committment. If your post is not easy to comprehend, then understandably people will not give it the proper attention it duly deserves.
