I partly agree with sorefingers above - this is predominately a music forum.

But, and it's a big but, sometimes the spelling or the grammar can be such that it obscures "the sense" of what is being said. Then clarification is often necessary for real communication.

I do admit that when I was younger, I was pedantic about English Spelling and Grammar. But then, as I studied English further, I began to realise just how many "dialects" modern English has all around the world, with so many different "slang" expressions, and while I still like to spell things the way that the Latin & Greek roots of many english words were taught to me "phone" not "fone" - I can mostly cope with things these days...
