    This, It's ok that you aren't perfect, but some people write so terrible and are so annoying to read that I'm almost certain it's more lack of will than of skill.

    Spelling is not such a big problem because you have the spell checks everywhere. But you should look out to try to do your best to post a decent thread with ok grammar, no one is perfect.

    Stop writing such scary things! Getting banned because not being a bad speller. I'm afraid of this too! But reading your posts again and using a spell checker might help a lot! (Not "alot" thanks Spell Checker)

    When you're getting paid for your writing, you really should put the extra effort into it to make sure you're not making egregious spelling and grammar errors.

    Yes, yes. I know that. Everyone here (except the staff and those who already lost the game) is stressed. Getting payed for posting on forums is great job.
    That feel when you type every single word in the spell checker and read every single sentence twice or more. But the worse is to fail after it.

    Believe me, I have a lot of respect and admiration for anyone who can fluently speak and write in multiple languages, but I think a lot of people may be setting their expectations too high here. The forum owners don't see the effort that went into it, they just see the words that you post, and when posts such as yours have multiple spelling and grammar errors in it, it stands out. Some forum owners are going to be more forgiving of this, and some less.
