You might, like some, think that using text-speak - no punctuation, no uppercase letters etc. - in a debate forum is modern, up-to-date, cool, whatever the current lingo is, but most people call it what it is, ignorant and illiterate. In case your school, like so many, was staffed by teachers who were themselves illiterate, allow me to explain some basic rules to use when trying not to look like an ignorant buffoon: Use upper case (capitals) for the first letter of the first word in a sentence and also for proper nouns like Amendment. (If you don't know what a proper noun is, look it up.) It's not hard; just depress the SHIFT key. Use commas, periods and other basic punctuations. A literate post will have much more credibility.
