Eric and TP: Some people are irritated or annoyed by the poor writing and grammar skills seen traditionally online. A story should never be written like a text message or a Twitter "tweet." Proofreading a story before publishing helps, too.

I agree Eric, but some ppl are just so miserable that they have nothing better to do then put other ppl down :(

Who cares about grammar online in a message board? Seriously give me a break. Jerks...

Thanks for sharing your photos. Watched the lightning from my house at the top of skyline. It was impressive from here. Wow... didn't know there were so many grammar police in the online world! Note I used 3 dots for ellipse and 1 exclamation mark.

Some people are saying this is just a normal Oregon spring thunder storm. Some people are saying they have never seen anything like it. Both are correct. In most places it was a normal thunder storm. But in some places it created funnel clouds.

What is a "finins?" I tried looking it up in the dictionary but the word does not exist. Ellipses are three dots. Only one exclamation mark is needed per sentence.

"Striked"?? Laura Anne, your grammar sucks!
