Well, I would like to say thank you after I read the article and the posts after it. Before I read this article, I was always like some of the examples you guys and gals were giving. But I find that actually going by the correct punctuation is somewhat more calm and relaxing.

So I guess you can put me in that category. jaklumen wrote: Well, I know some people that are 14 and don't know what a run-on sentence is. You may ask, "How is that possible?" Well, where I live they have lots of poor schools. I visit Africa every other year, and it really is depressing to see how they do in school. It may be because of lack of education, they dont have the right resources or what. That was a really nice article Zonorhc, and really brought a lot of thought to me, and in my case, even changed the way I type.
