Do you always write the way you do?
We're not exactly submitting essays here, but I think the way a person communicates says alot about them... even on the internet.
If you notice, the best posts even in this very thread are well written, and actually have *gasp* punctuation and capitalization.
You know, like if you ever make a thread asking a question, it's not out of the ordinary to put a question mark behind the question.
Little things like that will help you get taken more seriously, even if you don't think so.
And, I'm not talking about "spelling". Hell, I misspell stuff all the time, it happens. I'm talking about writing legible and coherent english, not AIM or text message talk (where minimal is better). Minimal is not always better on message boards. If you have the time to write something out, do it right.
