    You must respect my writing. My correction of your writing is all correct. In addition to the spelling of "advice", all my suggetions improved your writing to a great extent. However I am not going to challenge you. I am not interested in this forum.

    I can only say "Wow!"

    I hope you find a forum more to your liking. Good luck.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I sometimes ask myself how people can be so ungrateful. Rainbow.. you yourself asked for help. If you are not interested in this forum as you have already said, then, what are you doing here? It`s not nice of you! Tdol wanted to help you and you started to correct his English grammar. I am not a native English; still I can tell you that the difference between advice and advise is - in fact - the difference between a noun and a verb.
    Have a nice time somewhere else if you please! This forum is a very good one and the people here as well as the moderators are very helpful and nice.

    Please don't leave us rainbowpurple. We don't often get a chance to read such [writing]. I really enjoyed it.

    Awesome, Fivejedjon !!

    Your comment is far better of all. You are the best! Fivejedjon is right! We rarely have the opportunity to read such [a] "piece of work" !

    You say I must respect your writing and I do- enough to tell you the truth about it. You may find a forum that will tell you it's perfect and agree with you that advice is a verb, but if you do, you will not have found the truth- the verb is advise and this text needs to be completely rewritten.
    I am going to close this thread.
