Not being an expert on punctuation or spelling is not serious IMO (as long as it's still comprehensible/decode-able to the human brain) and sometimes I use incorrect punctuation on purpose, if I think it helps the eye reading it.
What is a real no-no in writing, is large blocks of letters without at least a little punctuation and a lot of "air" (white space), as we don't read a text in one single scan, but rest our eyes while processing the sentences - and it's hard to find the spot you left in such a large block when your eyes flicker away for even the slightest moment.
When I see such a block, I often just skip the post completely, like a website that takes half a second too long to load - patience belongs to other parts of life
The above rests on the assumption that, when you write something, you want people to read it and since that's the motivation of the writer, he/she should make it as digestible as possible - your words are the goods you sell and whatever you sell, make it as easy on the customers as possible, or they don't buy it.
Anyone don't believe that, just copy my post and remove any punctuation and air and compare the two variants.
People telling this to other is actually trying to help you get more "customers".

Gualala, you'd appear smoother if you paid your dues
I really think you owe us the remainder of the story on the expanding cam tower. You got lots of advice and then you just vanished until now - and hearing how a project completes (or not) is our only reward for helping out
