Re: Noob filters.
As an unemployed journalist I must say that proper grammar, style, and spelling are very important. It nearly kills me to see "your" instead of "you're", "there" instead of "they're", and so on. Honestly, a panda doesn't "eat, shoots, and leaves". Sentences can lose meaning or, such as in my example, mean the difference between life and death depending on what punctuation or tenses it contains.
I don't think a rule is necessary, but I do think that unreadable posts should be deleted or edited. =[
