              Not at all! It describes my approach (to the correcting of unintelligible written English) perfectly.

              I have the ability, Sportingdad has the need. Your posts aren't that bad (we can make sense of them, after all!) so your need is less. So I probably won't be correcting yours as much as his (unless you would like me to?!)

              Jeffrey, on the other hand, corrects everyone's errors indiscriminately...so watch out!

                ..

                err, yes,-ish, but to quote Mssrs Wikipedia,...

                Although Marx is popularly thought of as the originator of the phrase, the slogan was common to the socialist movement and was first used by Louis Blanc in 1840, in "The organization of work", as a revision of a quote by the utopian socialist Henri de Saint Simon, who claimed that each should be rewarded according to how much he works.[citation needed] The origin of this phrasing has also been attributed to the French communist Morelly,[4] who proposed in his 1755 Code of Nature "Sacred and Fundamental Laws that would tear out the roots of vice and of all the evils of a society" including
                “ I. Nothing in society will belong to anyone, either as a personal possession or as capital goods, except the things for which the person has immediate use, for either his needs, his pleasures, or his daily work.
                II. Every citizen will be a public man, sustained by, supported by, and occupied at the public expense.
                III. Every citizen will make his particular contribution to the activities of the community according to his capacity, his talent and his age; it is on this basis that his duties will be determined, in conformity with the distributive laws.[5] ”

                The phrase may also find an earlier origin in the New Testament. In Acts 4:32-35, the Apostles lifestyle is described as communal (without individual possession), and uses the phrase "distribution was made unto every man according as he had need"[6]:
                “ 32. And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.
                33. And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
                34. Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,
                35. And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.

                  That's jolly interesting - thank you, Lodger!

                  Actually I used to think it was by Sir Thomas More, but when I checked at some point it was attributed to Karl Marx.

                  It's a good maxim, any road and LLZ is a good example of it in action!
