I am a poster on a Forum which I rather enjoy. Their stipulation to join is, quote...PLEASE If YOU FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY OTHER THAN THE US PLEASE DON'T DISCLOSE YOUR LOCATION. I AM TRYING TO APPEAL TO A US BASED POPULATION ONLY. I have absolutely no problem with adhering to this but wonder how other postloopers deal with spelling and grammar on a US based forum. Do you spell words without the u? Do you shorten sentences to American speak? This Forum does have members from Thailand, Philippines and Argentina who unashamedly do not pretend to be American. Do I need to keep up my charade in favor of being American?
