The assumption is that all users are fluent in English (to your/our spec's) and highly educated
is unfair and presumptuous.

Sorry but after all these years I still cannot deal with that.

"That" being, poor grammar, or the actual assumptions of fluency and eductation?


I assume, if someone wants me to read their ideas and take them seriously, they will at least show effort in trying to make them as understandable as possible.

Do not forget that this is an internet forum, not a letter to President Obama. Formalities are not always necessary.
