Thanks for those two pronouns, I mean you’ve got errors in my posts and pointed them out to me.

Actually a lot of the poor writing I see is coming from people of all ages.
My answer to you was a joke. I agree with you.

Ahh, we are all just getting too old maybe.

What I love are the threads that start out with a single paragraph of a 100 or more words with missing punctuation, and sentences that run into one another (those with 99 or less words are ok ...) - sometimes they are very hard to decipher, as well as being hard for us old guys to read easily. I used to try and edit them from time to time, to make it easier for people to read. Sometimes that helped, sometimes not.
