    As someone who tries to write carefully, come on people, can we learn not to use this stupid construction? How do you 'as' something? You can speak as someone who... You can't as as someone who...

    As someone who corrects every meaningless spelling and grammatical error he spies on the interwebs, I’m not sure what you’re referring to.

    I’ll mess up spelling, grammar, syntax, et al all I want and could care not less about your issues with it.
    I’m happy you are perfect in your communication skills but it’s just not me, but most folks understand what in saying
    Have a lovely life

    I just wish people would write in paragraphs using paragraph rules. I really don’t want to dive into a post that resembles whale blubber.

    Sometimes it's the way it's presented on screen. Often, I will see something on the forum properly paragraphed on my computer, if I happen to see it on my phone, it's a wall of text.

    As someone who respects all the tech help that is provided by our colleague @dsutton24 I’m slightly confused at what needs improvement; but I’m sure there’s something we all could learn.

    As a tangent, it reminded of this song:

    Isn’t it suppose to be, “Ain’t got no idea as to what you all takin’ bout”?

    Moral of the story is, we are just tying to communicate quickly, without getting graded. M’kay?

    I believe that’s spelled “M’kay” I have an Irish surname, so I’m a bit sensitive to apostrophication.

    As someone once said...
    "Frankly, I dont give a damn!"

    Who was this Frank anyway? And why do you think he said that?
