Here is the reply I sent to Richard

The only problem I have with the grammar police is, I am 70 years old, I don't know an adjective from a verb and don't want to learn. I never wrote over a paragraph at a time until I wrote my first story here. If I did what the grammar boys wanted me to do, I wouldn't live long enough to learn it. Most of the grammar guys were literature majors or at least leaned that direction. I was a Soldier, an Aircraft Mechanic, a Toolmaker, and a Machinist. I didn't learn what they did because I didn't want to. I am sure that I am better at what I chose to learn than they are but, I would never find fault with them for machining something they wanted to make just because I could have done it better, and point out all their mistakes. If they came to me and asked, I would tell them what they wanted to know. If they had fun doing it, I think I would be happy for them. And, I will say again, if they don't like how it is wrote, don't read it, nobody is forcing them to be exposed to my piss poor writing and I do give warnings.
Thanks for taking the time to try and convert me to the educated side of writing. I'll pass.
