 Greetings  Fellow  hobbyists  Smile  
 
 A  loooong  time  ago  a  person  decided  to  be  a  member  of  an  premier  Indian  aquatic  group.  This  was  much  before  he  joined  IAH.
 
 In  all  enthusiasm  he  registered  and  mailed  his  first  post  to  the  admin.  In  order  to  maintain  the  high  standards  of  the  group,  The  Admin  himself  a  very  accomplished  aquarist  used  to  edit  every  post  by  the  members  before  he  published  them.
 
 Now  this  said  person  mailed  his  first  post  to  the  admin,
 
 dear  mr  kumar,  i  am  plsed  to  joun  your  esteemd  group.  i   lookm  forwd  to  your  guidence  in  fishkeeping.
 Thankin  you,
 person.

 
 Now  since  the  said  person  knew  the  admin,  he  was  full  of  confidence  that  his  post  would  be  published.  He  started  refreshing  the  page  with  growing  impatience  as  time  went  on.  But  nothing  happened!  His  post  was  not  published.  Puzzled  our  person  was  about  to  call  the  Admin  to  find  what  was  wrong,  when  he  found  a  mail  in  his  in-box.
 
 To  be  continued.....
 
 Regards,
 
 
 P.S:  Please  feel  free  to  correct  any  of  my  spelling  or  grammatical  or  punctuation  errors  Very Happy

 Hi  Rasik
 
 To  place  my  humble  view  in  above  context.
 
 IMO,  there  are  two  types  of  aquarist  who  do  spell  or  grammer  mistake  :-
 
 1.  One  who  is  a  sms  generation  freak,  who  uses  sms  language  and  grammer   to  communicate.  Personally  I  dont  like  such  languages  as  it  kills  the  beauty  of  english  and  at  times  impossible  to  decipher  Smile.
 
 2.  A  serious  aquarist  who  is  enthusiastic  about  this  hobby  and  could  be  a  treasure  trove  of  knowledgre  too,  but  is  uncomfortable  in  communicating  in  english.
 
 Again  in  my  humble  opinion,  second  type  of  aquarists  should  be  encourages  and  welcome,  despite  of  their  limited  knowledge  of  english.
 
 Above  qouted  example  could  be  a  casually  written  mail  or  a  case  of  limited  knowledge  of  english.
 
 
 On  a  personal  level  ,  I  too  support  rule  of  pure  and  good  english,  but  hope  it  doesnt  dicourage  hobbyists  who  have  limited  knowledge  of  it.
 
 Regards
 
 Sanjay  Dubey

 Continued.....
 
 The  person  found  the  mail  in  the  in-box  to  be  from  the  Admin  of  the  Aquarist  group.
 It  read.....
 
 Dr  Mr  Person,
 
 What  atrocious  English!  A  kindergarten  kid  would  be  able  to  write  better  than  you!  Aren't  you  ashamed  to  even  forward  such  a  poorly  worded  message  to  anybody?
 
 Kindly  recheck  your  message,  correct  all  the  errors  and  re-send  it  to  me.
 
 Regards,
 Mr  Admin.

 
 The  person  was  flabbergasted.  It  was  a  very  very  long  time  since  someone  had  addressed  him  in  such  a  blunt  and  brutal  manner.  As  would  with  anybody,  he  felt  his  temper  rising.  Who  the  hell  bloody  cares?  After  all  it  is  a  hobby,  isn't  it?  It  was  not  as  if  he  was  writing  his  Resume  or  any  papers  for  clients,  customers  or  professors.  
 
 But  then  as  mentioned  before,  he  knew  and  respected  the  Admin  of  the  Aquarist  group.  So  the  person  decided  to  swallow  his  ire  and  re-post  again.  So  the  second  mail  was  sent  to  the  Admin.....
 
 Dear  mr  kumar,  i  am  pleased  to  join  your  esteemed  group.  i     am  looking  forward  to  your  guidance  in  fishkeeping.  
 Thanking  you,  
 
 Regards,
 person.  

 
 To  be  continued......
 P.S:  Kindly  do  keep  those  comments  and  your  thoughts  coming  Very Happy

 Nayak,
 Any  possibility  of  the  Mr  Admin's  real  name  starting  with  the  letter  "T"?
 Just  a  wild  guess!

 Great  post  Nayak.  Some  of  the  IAH  posts  are  hard  for  me  to  understand.  I  guess  I  have  always  been  a  bit  anti-sms.
 When  I  originally  joined  IAH,  it  was  a  rule  not  to  use  sms  language.  I  can  understand  some  of  the  grammatical  errors  but  the  
 shortened  words  are  really  unnecessary.

 Some  days  later,  some  one  might  get  the  same  kind  of  message  from  the  Admin  saying:
 Dear  YOU,
 
 Stop  making  your  presense  by  just  posting  some  junk  Smileys  only.  Yes,  this  would  count  to  your  post  count,  but  donot  make  unecessary  updates  if  you  dont  have  anything  else  to  say  than  a  Smiley.
 
 This  is  not  a  IAH  rule.  But  this  is  still  a  good  practice.
 
 Yours,
 Admin

 
 P.S.  This  is  not  for  everyone,  because  for  some  posts  we  are  forced  to  post  a  smiley  only,  but  not  for  some  20  to  30  posts  everyday  with  just  a  Smiley   Crying or Very sad  .  If  you  want  to  Like  or  +1  we  have  Facebook  or  Google+   Chuckle

 Wonderful  topic  to  read  after  a  long  time  and  that  too  coming  from  a  master-writer.
 
 Reading  badly-spelled  words,  my  eyes  really  get  sore.  Specially  when  our  poor  old  Kerala  Queen  denisonii  is  spelled  as  danysony,  danasoni  or  danasonic.  Yes  Yes!!  All  of  these  have  left  their  mark  on  IAH.  Drinking

 Some  posters  are  ignorant,  some  are  plain  handicapped,  some  experienced,  some  are  quick  adapters  and  some  are  qualified  data  mines!  All  this  makes  for  great  fishy  camaraderie.  Or  maybe  sometimes  not?   Chuckle  
 
 This  is  a  fun  post  indeed.   Smile
