The "acceptable" modes of messaging and exchange of information are constantly evolving. A forum such as this one was unimaginable* just twenty years ago, yet today it can seem positively antiquated when compared to other platforms.
I present as an example today's the difference between anyway and anyways also a lot and a lots ?
I was tempted immediately to edit this question in several ways so that it might conform to... to what? The question as it is would be unexceptional if received in my messaging app!
Will it be wise to accept without revision questions formatted and presented as if in a messaging app? Since many new learners are much more accustomed to these platforms that to our stodgy web-based model, is accommodating them the best way to make them feel at home? Or should we instead expect learners to dispense with the near-dialect of English that constitutes, for many of them, their first experience of the language, and expect instead that they conform to a minimum standard of "proper" usage? How might we accomplish this without alienating them, or presenting ourselves as a bunch of hidebound troglodytes?
A tangent: when editing a question, I often wish it were possible to use the editing itself as a tool with which to promote progress in punctuation, spelling and grammar, but I haven't come up with a way to bring the quærent's attention to an edit in commentary without distracting from the content of the question. Do experienced hands have any tips?
*I except USENET, with which our presentation has something in common, because the majority of "regular folks" never knew of it, and still don't.
