The following question was posted this morning:
The question asks if the following paragraph uses the word "whatever" and "so" correctly:
I think she is a good friend and she has lots of information about everything. Whenever every person need help, she can help them because she want to learn everything that know about it to others. So I am happy because I have a good friend in my life. When I have any problem I can ask her and she guides me. I think good friend is very effective in personal life to everybody.
What should we do about all the additional grammar problems with this paragraph? I will generally edit and correct grammar problems with the question itself (e.g. "What are wrong with this sentence?"), but I wasn't sure how to handle this situation.
I can think of a number of options:
Fix anything and everything in the post that doesn't directly relate to the question being asked.
Use the answer to point out all problems, even if they're unrelated to the question. Contact a moderator if it looks like someone is trying to abuse the system in any way.
Answer the question, and point out that there are other problems that also need to be addressed without saying what those problems are.
This situation isn't common or important enough for us to have to agree on how to handle it. Everyone should use their discretion.
I'm new to this site, so I'd like to know how people have been handling this type of post. Let me know what you think...
