Love ya for getting on the forum with us, Frizz!
I know I'm pretty lax, but I've always told my daughter (prior to when she actually turned 18 last August) to say she's 18 years old on websites ~ or else the sites tend to censor your freedom, and that's a drag.
It's okay with her, though, because she's paranoid ~ errmmm, I mean smart ~ enough not to ever reveal any personal info online. In fact, even a couple times when I thought it was okay, she refused to do it.
Sometimes I think she's gonna grow up to be MY mother ~ because she's starting to act like it now! Like, "No, that's not right, dude!" Yeah, she calls me dude. Her father has a fit when she calls HIM dude ~ but she does it anyway, hahaa! Tough cookies, schnookie!
As for spelling things wrong, I don't care and I don't think it makes any difference unless you're writing a newspaper article, or representing a company or something ~ you know, writing to impress a mass audience or in a professional capacity. Webmaster of a site or something.
You would NOT believe how many of those I've come across. Sad.
But as for just regular people communicating, as long as we can get across what we're saying, hey, SO WHAT. Y'know?
If you can't join because of parental authority, that's fine. Have faith they know what they're doing (or at least they think they do; heh, I know how that is), and you'll hit 18 sooner than you'll probably want to.
Then they will probably still feel entitled to PWNing your life, but I advise you to just humour them, the poor dears. LOL Sometimes parents need to be patted on the head.
As for posting & commenting, just do what you did here and we'll all be cool with it! xD
