I still remember to this day when my English teacher read to the class two essays that were written by pupils taking “O” level English. The first was a mundane story, which I can’t remember, and the other was this most fantastic piece of writing about a guy waiting for his girlfriend to call him. After she read both stories she asked us which one we thought would score the highest mark. Of course we all said the second essay, but to our surprise the first got more marks. And you know why? It was because the mundane piece was perfectly punctuated and had not a single spelling mistake. The second was full of grammatical errors.

Make of that what you will.

Confab well my grammatical errors are enough for any English Teacher to break into a sweat over but I understand your point.

In my day sentences started with a capital letter and ended with a full stop. But if you can get your point across without being grammatically perfect then that’s fine by me. ;-)

I have a habit of writing things with the correct grammar. I even write like this on MSN - just on MSN I do away with the capital letters and full stops. I still leave the apostraphe's in though.
