It is hard to judge without further context, but it likely means 'make sure the speaker is not a bad speaker'.

If you know, then why do you ask? And why do you not write in correct English if you understand the language so well?

Hi Nathan,

One thing you can do is use capital letters properly.

You can also put your mouse over the symbols under a person's name to understand what they mean. If you see a checkmark or a teacher's symbol, you can be assured they can answer your questions. I don't know why his teacher symbol has disappeared, but I assure you that Mr. Micawber is more than qualified to answer your questions and you can rely on what he says.

The verb "suck up" is entirely different from "suck," but the latter doesn't mean to screw up. It just means to do it badly.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

I think he is totally wrong. What he meant is this: 'suck up to sth'. However, the original sentence is what I wrote earlier.

Now, what do you think, guys? It is important to me to be sure about this. We had a falling out over this one!
