Ok look I am not around people much so therefore I am not good at English:

Maybe someone is modifying my posts to look spelled wrong and I don’t know about it?

I am not in school for a while now , thats the other possible cause of the problem.

I took a year off from school because of my illness, Can my illness be the cause? I dont know.

At any rate thank God Mighty Penguin is the only one that is having enough trouble undestanding me to actualy care.

I am only 18 years old; I am not in collage yet; don’t expect me to talk like a Professor.

And besides a large part of my brain is devoted to understanding visual basic, and video games…

You caught me.  Heheh.   :rolleyes:

You're getting better Bots, but you still lapse from time to time into near incomprehensibility (if it isn't a word it should be!).

You used a capital in a non proper noun!
Burn the Botsareus! :rolleyes:

Also, Mighty Penguin forgot a few cases where capitals are required.
I'd abuse them, but I'm not that mean. ^_^

I don't have any trouble understanding your grammar Bots.

It may not be perfect but it gets the job done.

I suspect the reason may well be all those video games. The online ones teach you to type shortcuts instead of whole words.

Doesn't do much for spelling.

But there still isn't such a word combination as non proper in the English language. The correct term is improper as in

"Non proper is an improper use of the English language."

Not improper. It's not an improper noun, and it's not a proper noun.
Non proper noun seemed to work. Still does, in fact.
It's just that you aren't thinking exactly how I want you to. :rolleyes:

Whatever!!   :lol:
