And I ain't going to hardly try I don't need to impress no one.
LOL - my understanding is that Edders will also procede to punish poor grammatical performance with negative reputation points

I will give rep to the person who can insult edders in the most original, entertaining and gramatically correct fashion.

edders did not say formal writing, just good grammar.

I may lend my 62 points to this campaign every so often.
Well if he does not want us to regard writing here as formal, I don't see why he should expect us to use good grammer. And I think that despite edders' insistance that his name is not a proper noun, you should still begin sentences with capital letters.

Wrong tense of the verb "to use". Tut tut.
Edders used "use" as a noun, not a verb.

'edders' does not have a capital 'E'

Abbreviations done correctly, with the right apostrophe use, are perfectly acceptable.
Yes, I've re-read and established that you were using it as a noun .

It does at the beginning of a sentence. And sentences end in full stops. Sigh.

Good!
Just keep your eyes peeled for particularly stylish examples of effective punctuation and grammar, so we can praise the post's author for his panache on this thread!

I am a little dismayed to have just read: "Just keep your eyes peeled for particularly stylish examples of effective punctuation and grammar, so we can praise the post's author for his panache on this thread!" Are you assuming that people of the female persuasion can not employ the grammatical laws of our language on a V-bul message board? I do hope not.

It's a semi-exclamation, i.e. one that lacks an exclamation mark.
