I teach English for a living and I LOVE this thread.

FWIW - I'm nutty about objective and subjective pronouns, I.e. "Me and him is going to the store."

What may appear to be grammatical errors in any of my posts are actually well placed anomalies designed to help certain readers in their understanding of my written thoughts. Sort of like the reason I talk real slow when in the company of certain people; so that they will better understand me.

That's just baby talk!

You've got to type a little faster. You keep stalling out the keystroke counter that I'm monitoring on your computer. :wink:

Let's take a look at your first paragraph:

QUOTE
To anyone who wishes to post their experiences about a CCW encounter. I would really like to read it. There is a pet peeve that I would like to point out before going any further. I’ve read too many accounts in the OC forum and this one as well of people that want to be taken seriously but don’t take the time to produce a message that can be read easily. If you want anyone to take you seriously please consider using paragraphs, proper punctuation and spelling.
UNQUOTE

SUGGESTED
To anyone who wishes to post their [his] experiences about a CCW encounter.[:] I would really like to read it. There is a pet peeve that I would like to point out before going any further [farther]. I’ve read too many accounts in the OC forum[,] and this one as well[,] of people that[who] want to be taken seriously[,] but[yet] don’t take the time to produce a message that can be read easily. If you want anyone to take you seriously[,] please consider using paragraphs, proper punctuation and spelling.
/SUGGESTED
The suggested changes above represent a very cursory read of your paragraph. If you want to be a "Grammar Nazi", learn better grammar first.
