On a writer's facebook, he writes:

Does any thing ungrammatical or sound unnatural in it?
In my opinion, I think the 'do' should be omitted.

What do you think about it?
Thanks!

PS I also posted the same question on this, but all of your answers are unique to me. Hope we can discuss with each other. Thank you.

PPS I don't know which tense I should use. 'he writes' or 'he wrote'? or both are acceptable?

I agree that 'do' should be omitted because 'about' should be followed by a noun clause rather than a question.

Both "he writes" and "he wrote" are acceptable. I prefer the present simple in this case.
