    Because it can be pretty hard to understand the whole story, and pretty easy to misinterpret it, when it is written like an illiterate 7 year old. She is asking for LEGAL advise, she ought to at least know how to present it in a legible manner.

    If you can't communicate like an adult, why should you be treated like one?

    If she presented a similar handwritten or typed letter to the local police department, I have no doubts they'd just show her the door.

    Generally speaking, the answer is because even if you're an adult who can't spell as well, write as well, or otherwise communicate as clearly as others, you're still an adult. So long as members make a sincere effort and their posts aren't nonsensical or riddled with text speak, they shouldn't be discounted or ridiculed for not exhibiting a particular level of education or polish. Many people can't help the factors that shape their lives and consequently their style of writing, and we don't want to run those people off because of it.

    That said, members should make an effort to communicate as clearly as possible. In this case, it would not have taken much effort for the OP to capitalize her sentences, break long posts into paragraphs, etc. to make things easier for the people trying to read and understand her posts so they could help.

    If a member's style of writing makes their posts difficult to read or understand, by all means, ask them nicely to make specific changes to make it easier on everyone if they can. If anyone finds themselves unable to reply in a friendly, helpful spirit on account of another member's linguistic or grammatical shortcomings, please simply move on to a different thread. It's better they receive no response than insults.

    Thank you, everyone, for helping to keep the Horse Forum a helpful, welcoming place.
