    Default Feedback/answers must be grammatically correct

    Dear moderators,

    I am a regular surfer of this Discussion Forum, and I find that the topics discussed are very interesting and useful to learners of English . A special thanks should be accorded to RonBee who has patiently and professionally answered the questions posed by learners . So far,his /her answers are in sequence with the standard English grammar but ,there some topics which are open to further discussions.

    But , there are some feedback and answers given by moderators which are not quite acceptable grammatically . If this persists , I am afraid the learners would not be able to improve their language skills .

    English has its own complexity , and it is not that easy to write or speak perfectly despite learning the language for years .

    It would be good to have a pool of experts from a few English speaking countries ( e.g. the UK , Australia , NZ, the West Indies , the USA , Canada,etc ) to contribute to this vital language .

    Thanks for allowing me to express my opinions.

    That is useful and interesting commentary. Thank you for that. And thank you for the compliment.

    I can't be sure what you mean by that. However, you are always free to respond to the comments of others with comments of your own. Criticism is always welcome as long as it is well-intentioned.

    I'm sure that all of us are doing their best. However, nobody is perfect. If there is anything specific you wish to comment on please do so.

    Our main contributors are from the USA and the UK. (No slight is meant to the rest, of course.) I believe that most ESL learners are trying to learn AE, BE or both. That does not mean that contributions from others are not welcome here, because they are.

    Always. :)

    If you have any additional comments or suggestions, please feel free to express them.

    :)

    Could you give some examples of this?
