As for your writing like a wanker rant, need I point out the following:

  • English isn't everyone's first language.
  • Your local sayings aren't the same as everyone else's
  • email is shorter and faster to type than e-mail.
  • Poor punctuation and spelling are hardly going to kill you. The vast majority of the time they won't even slow down your reading let alone make the point incomprehensible.

As for proprietary file formats in public discussion forums, it's a good thing. If the format is in wide use, it will become open and reduce user's dependency on it. Mind u, those, l4m3rs f*ckin piss me off 2 ;-)

    There's also a difference between sending an e-mail to your friends and professional writing for work. What is acceptable in one case is not in the other. Poor punctuation and spelling are a real problem if they are part of the documentation written by a highly paid consultant.
