    This issue is beat to death. I freely admitt that my spelling sucks sh_t through a straw. This issue is so petty. I honestly belive that alot of the spell nazi crap is just too put some people down. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    read the post about that conspiracy theory around the pentagon, more than one post where its not a dead issue, ha. I wans't even refering to you in anyway. I haven't noticed really bad spelling from you in a while. Misspelling one or two words is fine but when you have to stop and interperet wtf the person mean is what I'm talking about.

    Agreed. I don't think its pointing fingers, honestly, it makes some responses or post very
    difficult to read. Our minds are so fixed on words as they should be, then we get

    I'm not death on spelling if the subject matter is light. But, if you want any credibility attached to a serious matter, and you butcher the delivery, the credibility of the person writing it goes down the growler, and as a result, usually the content itself.

    i don't know if misspelling is the culprit, or mistyping.... my meat hooks jam away on the keyboard - sometimes i miss the edge of a key and the one next to it gets pressed....or a key doesn't get pressed hard enuff..this may happen as i type at the lightning pace of about 30 words a minute
