I thought we had a clause for that in the Help Center but I guess it's not as explicit as I thought. We have one for answers: "Write to the best of your ability. We don't expect every answer to be perfect, but answers with correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar are easier to read."
Might be worth flagging? I've seen mod messages sent for when someone's questions are fine on the merits, but every time need significant cleanup work.
