Lindsay, I only want to make one point and then I'll let this go, because it has absolutely nothing to do with chams. I have read many posts by Jamie and none of them (that I can remember) were written like that. I would never have guessed he was 13, based on his previous posts - grammar-wise. This one was completely different in my mind. If he wants to write like that, more power to him, but don't think this is an England-America thing or that he posts like this all the time.
:OK. So, if you can't understand what is written DON'T READ IT. The title of the post was "for Kim and people whos interested". If that's not you, then don't be so concerned about it. Jamie is 13, and intelligent! 13 is grade seven in America. Not too many people care about proper English in grade seven, let alone are able to spell perfectly when they need to. Listen to someone from England talk normally, and you probably won't understand much more, lol. They have different ways to speech as far as organizing sentances, and sayings, and words and such. So what if he doesn't write the same? It's not like he is trying to save someone's life. How vital is it that you know exactly what he is saying? Is it important enough that you have to make a rude shot at it? He isn't trying to be cool, that's just how some teenagers write. More for fun that to "fit in". Give him a break.
:Jamie, I understood it. I think it was funny that he got away, although I feel bad for him. He probably got a good fright. Maybe your dad will learn for next time to be more careful. Don't let it bug you when people are rude. :)
