    Don't start on me, that was proper 'textspeak'.

    That would help to some extent, but such a device would not cope very well with homophone confusion, or with the punctuation in a complex sentence such as the one you cite (because, as you say, it can mean two different things depending on how it is punctuated - there is no one correct way).

    And isn't it dreadful, jta, just how many people these days just can't be bothered to capitalise the first letter of a new sentence!

    Actually, I'd just be glad if people spelled 'tenants' correctly and capitalised 'I'.

    I was not referring to myself. Apparently your reading and interpretation skills mirror your writing skills. Shame really considering you are studying law. I'd say they were quite basic demands.

    I will stretch myself to coming to your assistance further now though in asserting that it is or it's is better than "its".

But once again thank you for the advice even if you did have to read my poor initial post
    It's OK; public self-flagellation isn't necessary!

    It makes such a mess.

    You don't need A levels or a degree to take a little pride in the presentation of your words, especially online where they are all that you can provide. It is especially important where you are asking complete strangers to take time out of their busy days to help you.

    I do have 3 A's at A level however I did not state in which subject and 2 of them are not subjects traditionally studied by people who would go on and study law at undergraduate level .
    Personally I feel that A levels are not really a test of ones overall academic ability or ability to express yourself but maybe thats just my experience of them .
    Whilst did admit to having 3 A levels and studying law at undergraduate level I didnt admit to being the worlds best speller and spelling is sometimes something I have difficulty with . The errors in my post however where down to typing errors and a neglect to proof reading as appose to not being able to spell

I would not be making this much fuss with someone who had not been educated to your level, but I think it's depressing that you have 3As at A level, are studying Law, yet do not think it matters how you express yourself in this context.

    Yes, but they weren't 'occasional'! Your post is riddled with them.

    I was joking.

    Yes, the BBC's not what it was either.

    And what is the rate of graduate employment (in Law) from those courses? Is it worth it?
    I wouldn't know and couldn't possibly comment. What I do know is that there is a very large Tesco's being built near the local BBB university, so one could hazard a guess that the unemployment rate would be quite low

    I'm only 22 so again could not comment on how far the country has fallen.

    I can spell tenant , I also know that "I" is normally capitalised and various other grammar rules . However I didnt realise my grammar would come under such scrutiny so i didnt go back and proof read my post .
