Nobody's offended. The Marks, and avb3 just said what I (and no doubt others) were thinking. The writing style you are using makes it difficult to read and understand what you're saying. We want to help. I'm sure that a lawyer, charging by the hour, would have no problem parsing your posting.

By the way, seeing a lawyer is good advice. Pay for a quick letter on legal letterhead and see what happens.

I care. I have told zeehag "that". I agree with avb3's comments.
Don't change the default font style, size, nor colour.

I do. It's just common courtesy, to make your posts easy for others to read.

Re: Dock Woes

Some of us simply won't spend the time to parse poorly spelled, grammatically incorrect, badly punctuated, and simply bad writing. Accordingly, you give up whatever benefit might have been gained from the contributions of those people. Some of us know what we are talking about. Some may not be relevant. You won't ever know. I got a better understanding of the OP issue from the responses. The OP is simply too hard to read.

Re: Dock Woes

I would be intersted in seeing some pictures posted of this dock work. People could probably provide more suggestions from a few good photos.

Hey if the photos are good send them to the local paper and TV news station!

I got a headache trying to wade through your posting, and gave up. I have no idea if I could have given good advise or not, as it took too much effort to try and understand it.

My bet is that there are forum members who are much wiser then myself who felt the same way, and you will never hear from them.

Sorry.

Man!

never heard you talk to Zee that way.

I had no trouble with it really. I suppose I have learned to communicate with different folks over the years.

There is lots worse here.

On topic:

I don't know what to tell you to do except get together with other boat owners there to figger sometin out.

Re: Dock Woes

The point of the forum is for people to communicate with each other. To that end punctuation, paragraphs and capitalization are desirable. There is a change coming to the rules to help us maintain the readability of the forum. Why not practise now?
