You make no logic, 1b4 r means nothing as does your post. A good
digital unit reading 50-55% is OK especialy in winter. Get a different
tech, one with at least a 4th degree in math, who can add and
subtract.

Yes, I have some advice. You are not text messaging. If you want people
to invest the time to share their knowledge, take the time to spell
entire words. You might also consider capitalizing the first word of
each sentence. You'll recognize a sentence, I'm sure, by the subject and
verb it contains.

Don't buy a Kenmore. They are crap. I replaced mine with a Whirlpool that
has been reliable so far. Consumer Reports recommends buying the biggest
size.... usually 70 pints... and turning it down if necessary.

Look for a Whirlpool at Lowes. Stay away from LG. The LG may be the same
as the unreliable Kenmore.

The Whirlpool is the only one that still has a 5 year warranty on the sealed
refrigeration part of the dehumidifier.

u try tying lying on ur side !


If you cannot sit, possibly you should try standing up while you type.

Your posts verge on the nonsensical. It is unreasonable for you to
expect people to read that garbage, whatever disability you claim
to have.

I read it just fine. If you don't have the patience or compassion, don't
bother trying.

No problem reading it here either. If you can't understand what
someone is typing, then don't reply.

So go to Sears or wherever and ask them, you dont say how humid or
basement temp or probably even know how tight it is, anything will
help BTW. Oh Troll, is it a 1,000,000 sq ft basement or 200 sq ft, id
say troll, or not so so.

I don't want phonetic reading when English spelling is a lot easier to
read.

plus accepted abbreviations


Accepted by whom?

Those are accepted for cellphone text messaging, because they save time
and characters while sending. Sending text from a cellphone keyboard is
just plain difficult, so making that task easier (even though it makes
reading harder) seems reasonable.

On the other hand, messages on Usenet are usually typed on a full
keyboard, where it is not difficult to spell words with all their
characters. Also, there may be hundreds or thousands of people reading
what one person writes.

Essentially, by using these abbreviations in writing, you're saying that
you think saving *you* a little time in writing is a good tradeoff even
if it wastes time for hundreds of readers. In other words, you don't
care about the readers.

Fine, if that's what you want - but don't expect readers to be as
inclined to help you if it takes them extra work just to read your
messages.
