to publish a comment in the hindu

if you want to know the rules for  commenting  on an article
published in the hindu , here they are verbatim 

       Please write complete sentences. Do not type comments in
       all capital letters,  or in all lower case letters, or using
       abbreviated text.   (example: u cannot substitute for you,
       d is not 'the', n is not 'and').

luckily the hindu doesnt explicitly say that u shd be in proper
dress , stand up when u finish reading or that it should be read
out loud with clear phonetics. may be they are all implied.

good work as far as raising  the english reading and writing
standards is conerned. but did someone say  sometime
somewhere that self righteousness  should stop short of
annoying others ?

i want to conclude this post with the words
     better late than never 
but i am under no illusion that any reader of the hindu will take
it seriously. becoz it is probably not a complete sentence.
