I'd rather that people felt free to speak without being picked up on their spelling or grammar, especially if they are less confident communicators or English is not their first language.
Particularly if their question is a serious, on-topic one.
People's 'freedom' to be as rude/cynical as they like I can do without.
(Not that I'm suggesting Ivanhoe intended to be rude to ResearchStudent - just that people should be thoughtful as to how their contributions might come across to someone not immersed in the ways of the forum.)
That said, I've always felt that it's a matter of good manners for people to take care about the presentation of their message if they expect to be taken seriously.
Thank you for all your comments.
I was not aware that presentation was that much of an issue in this forum. I was hoping that the content will be the focus of the discussion. (And thank you James for speaking so fairly).
Apart from my poor spelling, does anyone have anything they hope to contribute to the topic ?
ResearchStudent - I have been living in Empire Sq for the past 2 years so if you have more specific questions, I would be happy to try and answer them (and I would be interested in knowing the reasons for them)
My assignment is to find out about the roles and relationships of 'agents' involved in the the production of Tabard Square.
'Agents' include a large number of people, two of which are the users of the building and the general public. In other words, i am hoping to find out how users and the public influenced the production of Tabard Square.
so Boroughmark, do you think you influenced the producton of the tabard square in any way ??
