I'm really allergic to such posts, because to me, they are extremely disrespectful: the poster doesn't even care to follow fundamental rules of politeness (yes, following grammar rules is also considered polite), yet expects that others do some work for him. geekmaster once drew this quite fitting analogy: "it's like your neighbor knocking on your door, wearing only dirty underpants, and asking to borrow some milk."
That is why you got such a reply. I realize that this is your first post, so it's not a big deal, and I'm not trying to scare you away from the forum. You're very welcome to participate here - just keep in mind that if you are polite and write readable sentences, you're more likely to get help. It's much like in real life
- anyway, topic closed.
