    Basically English is not my 2nd language so that it is reasonable enough for me to be here. I am coming here to learn and to have better social intercourse with you. But What can I do ? Without your help to make any correction for my writing. Hoping you a lot to help me.

      OMG!  Just check what you said.. 'social intercourse'.. It should have been social interaction.
      If you need help with your hubs you need to place a link to one or two of your hubs here on this forum. That way you would be able to receive critique that will be directed at improving your hubs.

        Be sure and attack the poor guy.

          I don't see that as an attack -she was simply pointing out an error - exactly what he asked us to do - and it was a rather funny one.  But then, you would be the expert on personal attacks!  lol

            "OMG!  Just check what you said.. 'social intercourse'.. It should have been social interaction."

            You don't see that as an attack but call me the "expert on personal attacks".

            Please show me where I have ever attacked anyone.

            I have been banned 3 times, once for a mutual argument with Randy Godwin where we were both banned. We also agreed that what we were banned for we didn't consider attacks.

            Once for posting a comment that a staffer felt was not pertinent to what the thread was about.

            And the last one for calling someone out on their not very accurate statement. That was my favorite, they reported me and told me, then a week later they were upset about people reporting others.

              Yep, you are correct, Jim.  We both thought the ban was stupid and uncalled for.  I suppose the moderator felt the need to exert her control, as I saw no other reason for the ban.  I still resent the uncalled for interference in our conversation by her. smile

          Yes sometime I don't understand the rule. I graduated well for English. here I am very stupid. Perhaps . Indonesian English is Too Bad.  Speaking about your topic. I was locked in other website to write, precisely they called me a bad grammar . Even though visitor love my writing.  which one is correct ?

            It is tough writing for the US market- where all the money is- unless you can write standard US English.

            Your writing is perfectly easy to understand but many of your constructions are non-standard in American terms.

            I reckon it would be a tough ask to unlearn so much of what you have learnt but you could try.

            Another solution might be to use an editor- there are plenty online who are very affordable.

            I can tell you plenty of people here make a few dollars a month per hub (on average) and a few dollars is all you need pay to have a page edited.

            If you have a nose for a profitable page, it might work out.

        agreed sofs...words can be dangerous if not placed properly, i know an incident where i spelled one word wrong and we had a strong fight for tat, the mistake i did was i haven't accepted my mistake.
        words can be medicinal and words could be like bullets to murder , so my dear u should keep a track of what u r not confident of while writing and if u r not knowing ask some friends to help. you can ask me each time you write your hub..

          Social intercourse does not have bad meaning, it means an exchange of ideas not body fluids guys! smile

          Social intercourse:

          "intercommunication - mutual communication; communication with each other"

            See now, I'm in the US and I read that statement the same way Earnest did. 

            If you truly understand the meaning of word you should be able to read a statement as it intended.

      Read the Terms Of Service carefully. Use an online translator to help you publish quality Hubs. Many can be found free by doing a Google search. While we want to help, you must publish Hubs that draw our attention and that means you must work very hard before publishing a Hub. I hope this helps you. Regards, Hyphenbird.

    truly, you need more language help than we can give - I suggest you enroll in a class or two in writing and English. Many people here need to spend their time writing their own articles and checking their grammar for themselves.  So don't expect other hubbers to correct all your mistakes for you. Good luck to you!

    I fully agree with Mega on this one.  Your lack of skills in the English language needs more than someone editing all of your hubs for you.  No one here wishes to spend a great amount of their own time correcting your grammar for you.

    Not trying to be harsh, but there it is.  You must solve your own problems, or better yet, find a site for articles written in your native tongue.  smile

        Read as many hubs as you can. That will help your English. By a dictionary and look up what you don't understand.

            That's challenging. I were likely in a dream wold to write English . Knowing my daily speaking is Sundanese so I have to translate Sunda-Indonesian- English. The greatest trouble for me is spelling. Thank you for commenting me friend

          I agree with Uninvited, you should try to read as much English material as possible.

          I grew up, as an American, going to French schools.   It took quite a while for me and my sisters to be able to rearrange our sentences, and speak English properly, when we returned to the United States.  Reading was the key factor for all three of us.

    I am not interested in attacking anyone or pointing out their flaws
    Since Cupess asked if there was a problem with his communication, I pointed out  the obvious.
    People here know that I do not indulge in such mean stuff.. anyway .. thanks for pointing out Mr Hunter.
