    any mistake here?

    hi!... can anyone, please, tell me if there is any mistake in this text? thanx!:

    today, I was wondering why I´ve always liked babies and little kids so much since I was a child myself… suddenly, I found the reason –or, better said, I remembered the reason, since I realize now that when I was a child I was fully aware of
    why I loved babies…
    and the reason is that only in babies and little kids u can find some authenticity... 99% of grown-ups are simply artificial, fake, empty, dull... carbon copies of each other... simple carriers and conveyors of the official and unique way of thinking... not worth devoting any time to.

    Re: any mistake here?

    Welcome to the forum.

    The main problems are with punctuation and capitalisation. We don't connect sentences with ... as you have done. Click on Edit Post and make changes to your post, following these important rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Do not put a space before a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.

    Please also remember to use full, standard English words, not textspeak/chatlish. The word "u" does not exist. It's "you".

    If you want to learn how to use an ellipsis (...), look HERE (there are other sites, try Google).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "Thank you" is a sentence so it needs to follow the rules I just gave you. In addition, there is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you". Simply click on the "Thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful.
