 A Newbies opinion......There is a lot of stuff here both useful and entertaining, some of the humour is priceless . Generally a great forum.

  However, If I post inane rubbish please don't flame me, just ignore me.

                 If my spelling or punctuation isn't good, Please make an effort to understand what I'm saying. There's a lot of very expert sailors out there (I wouldn't include myself with these) who don't have the skills of Dickens or Keats. To ignore a pearl of wisdom because you don't like the setting is folly in the extreme.

  Great stuff,

       G.K.    ( formerly GaznJax)

Wrong way around, I'm afraid. If you want to be understood, you need to make the effort to be clear. That's the reality, like it or not.

Some confusion between reality and personal opinion I think.

It may be your opinion, but it is wrong.

It is you who should be making yourself understood !

Not at all. This is the sound-bite society. You only get one chance to get your message across. Ever gone through a pile of 100 CVs to choose 10 to interview?Do you think they all get read equally carefully, including the barely comprehensible ones?

being selective about what you make the effort to understand limits the intelligence.... in my opinion

Back to the topic, I see there are 2900 + users. It would be interesting to know how many of them still browse the forum.

Well let's see. Why aren't I out sailing? Because I am writing the literature review section of a dissertation and have approximately 3000 A4 pages of relevant reseach to summarise, let alone all the other papers I've looked at briefly. Being non-selective is not an option.

Its a tricky one this one.  You both have good points.

Unless you are able to communicate your ideas clearly and concisely you will stuggle in this world to get what, or where you want.

However, not making an effort to see past peoples communication skills can lead to some very good ideas being missed.

Point is in the time critical environment (well lots of people think they live in one) of the modern world it is important to have at least basic comms skills that allow you to get your point across, this doesn't mean you have to demonstrate the skills and prose of Dickens.

Modern schooling has a lot to answer for, with the emphasis on freedom of expression etc I for one was never made to learn or apply English properly, something I am still having to correct at nearly 30.

It is not, though, acceptable to blame poor communication skills on anyone but yourself.  History is littered with people who have overcome comms difficulties, not of there own making, to achieve great things.  If you don't think your English is good spend longer concentrating on it.

edit: See I've had to edit it as on my third proof read after posting I spotted an error.  There may still be some mistakes.
