Why calli, thank you, you seem a very civilized fellow indeed, a standout among the implacably hostile merchants of antagonism
There are a half-dozen other such boards that might be to your advantage. Although protocol forbids me from naming them, try Googling as follows: word phrase origins smith craft wizard finder

Dale, I just want to thank you for your rectifying my written English.
I know my written English needs polishing and I want it looks better. For it might look like trivial to others, and others might avoid it out of politeness, I don't get much opportunites for others to help with it. So it's rare for me to get any comments and I value comments on my written English very much.
That's why I make out my signature like this.
And should I replace "writing" with "written English"?_________________________
Do inform me if you see any corrections needed in my written English.

Silly of me. I read your signature line as tell me places to learn better written English rather than, as I now think you intend, to inform you if we see corrections needed in your written English.
I feel the same when I am learning another language - I would rather get a chuckle and a friendly correction than have my mistakes politely overlooked. Occasionally I got outright guffaws but they were usually friendly too.
