lol.  Added rule: Can't be anything that is obvious to others outside of the forum.  exp: shaving head, dying hair pink, streaking down the street.  Keep them challenging, but nothing that will cause me further emberassment and ridicule outside of the forum. =D

Yeah, you've managed to do that yourself...

It's good enough for me at this point. Task #1 complete.

===================================

Good grammar and spelling are important for a variety of reasons.  One reason is the level of seriousness.  If you are typing with bad grammar and spelling, many people will not take you seriously, rendering the point you were trying to get across obsolete.  Many people type with bad grammar or spelling because they do not feel like taking the time to type.  While this may be easier on the typist, the reader may experience a lot of frustration and aggravation due to the fact that they can not understand what the writer is trying to say.  Also, if you make errors in your grammar, your point may come across different than you originally intended it to.  It is also very important to type in complete sentences, organizing one thought into one paragraph.  I have personal experience with this, because I, too, used to type in incomplete sentences, skipping a line very often.  While this was convenient to me, many people who were reading got aggravated and told me to stop. Now, I believe I have improved greatly, and anytime I type, I use complete sentences and paragraphs.
    Spelling is especially important.  If you spell incorrectly, you may not be taken seriously, as stated above.  Also, the reader may try to guess what word you were trying to say, and guess incorrectly.  Another common thing that people do is type the homonym [words that are said the same, but have different spellings and meanings] to the word they wanted instead of using that word, like confusing “their” with “there” and “they’re.”  “They’re” is a contraction for the words "they" and "are".  “Their” is a word showing possession of a noun between two people.  The last sentence brings me to my next point:  Many people will use the word “their”, when describing one person owning something, while the correct way to phrase it would be to use “his” or “her”.  The only time to use the word “their” is when there are two people in possession of something.
   You should use good grammar and spelling at all times, even whilst socializing with your friends on a social networking site, instant messenger, or email.  If you don’t use proper grammar and spelling with your friends, you may struggle greatly on writing a paper for your professor or teacher at school.  If you need to write a report for your boss, you can’t waste your time making sure you spell everything correctly and use proper grammar.  If you would use proper grammar and spelling at all times, it would already be in your brain that that is what you do. You will not have to consciously think about using good grammar or spelling anymore.  This will save you a lot of time not having to go over your essays countless times to make sure they are right.
   In conclusion, I find that using proper grammar and spelling at all times is an essential part of life, and will make you seem more intelligent to your peers.

It sounds like you left these lines in rough draft form, while revising the rest. Somehow a bit unrefined.

But well-done.
