    Nope. You told me to address Probus by his username.

    The same advice goes for all users, Dutch Van der. If you feel the need to address a user directly, use their full username.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    No lol. It's an alternative spelling of America, used mainly in the South. Haven't you stumbled upon it on Reddit, Discord or other online communities? It's fairly common.

    You seem to be confusing this forum with the many chatrooms in which anything goes. We'll be sorry to lose you if you don't make an effort to conform to our standards.

    Rather archaic standards, but as you might have already noticed, I have no problem writing in formal English. I just didn't know.

    In formal/business settings sure, but on the internet such standards are rare.

    I've never used Reddit or Discord. This is the only online forum of which I am a member. I am, of course, used to the low standard of English used on Facebook, Twitter and the like but this forum (as has been pointed out in other threads) is specifically aimed at helping people learn correct (relatively formal) English. We have a lot of members who are here because they want to/have to pass formal exams in English. We endeavour to ensure that they see only the kind of English that will be acceptable in those exams.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
