Seems like quite a few posts have shown up where the new member has trouble typing sentences that end with a period, or putting together a coherent description of what is going on. I want to help but my spidey senses are tingling.

I'm going to guess that we will get quite a few new folks that really do need help but.... hmmm... it's almost as if they are the same rambling setup for us getting steamed?

Mods, apologies if this is an inappropriate topic for discussion. I truly want to help and usually take people at face value, but having taken WH at face value I'm wondering what my gut is telling me. I don't know if that's a troll I smell or just someone who is so depressed they haven't done laundry in weeks.

IDK, hkk; every once in a while my spidey senses go off, but I think the endemic problem is that a lot of people post from their phones and it's a little more difficult to paragraph. The punctuation is probably laziness.

Then there are the people who are so deeply in pain that their posts are written as they would speak them--without taking a breath! Sadly, those are the ones I can't read. Like you, I want to tell them, "Slow down and write coherently so we can help you!"

I'm typing from my phone lately, I HATE it. Sorry for the typographical mess. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to correct autocorrect.
