    Is there some way to address the people who write in with questions and think they are texting their friends? I spend more time fixing up their English than answering questions. The i for I, the ru a believer, ? 4U ? I mean, seriously?

      I have a solution but it may or may not work for you. I only answer on Sundays (no employees to supervise) and even if there are 10 or 15 new questions I only answer one or two. If they ask but they use things like ru, 4u, lol, or other textspeak I just ignore. I agree, I mean, seriously?
      The traffic from this section is a joke anyway, so I am not going to waste time on it.

    This is what people have learned from social media only! Short cuts for spoiling the language.

    That's the kind of crap that made me turn off the Q & A feature entirely.

      How long has it been? More than a year for sure since I've turned it off. Repetitions, horrible use of language and clear signs of people who do not bother to read the article.

        How long ago did they start the Q & A feature? Haha. I turned it off within a few days.

        I actually enjoy answering most of the time in the Q & A, but some guy wrote me with the most asinine question that I assume he thought would make him sound intellectual. He obviously had not read the article or he would have known that his question was impossible for me to answer. I told him so.

          I tried doing that when people asked idiotic questions that were answered in the article, and was reprimanded by the powers that be. I don't write here anymore and rarely answer questions. Nobody wants to read the article, they all want to be spoonfed.

          I agree. Since I have the QnA feature blocked, people ask questions in the comments instead. The comments with bad grammar do not get through so it saves me some time.
