We should be able to remove a rec for those who post fully illiterate statements, such as the originator of Thread 44923
Originally posted by XanthosNZYes, I am responding to the post above me which said that if someone was from a country that can't speak proper English then they shouldn't be allowed to have recs for their posts, which is a completely idiotic idea. Nob.
I can't quite follow the logic there. Is there any?

Still, the grammar better than a lot of what we find here, wouldn't you say.
Originally posted by martin williamsMost of the really bad posts are written by native speakers, and some of them (the speakers, not the posts) have shown that they can write much better English if they want, they just don't care. That's what I am up against.
Cut the foreigners some slack.
Sure, someone from Slough, Adelaide or Fort Worth should have a sound command of their own language.
But a lot of people really struggle with English.
They come here and they try their best.
Don't flame them, help them.
