  • Very few of us spell properly all the time and occasional misspelling and typos are to be expected. As long as the meaning is clear I don't find this to be a problem, but I tend to ignore something with so many mistakes that it is hard to understand.
  • It would be ideal, but it is arrogant to assume that everyone is capable of doing so. Some people are not the worlds best spellers and other people speak and write English as a second language. I can live with that. What annoys me more than anything is people who are CAPABLE of writing well, but who are too lazy to do so and speak in "netspeak" and "txt-talk" instead.
  • It would be nice, but then again it would also be nice if we were more understanding of each other's minor imperfections
  • I am a terrible speller, but if I can't even get close to the correct spelling I will often times, re word my answer to use words I can spell.
  • Sorry - duplicate.
  • Absolutely not. The level of someone's education is usually something resulting from the circumstances of their birth, and has little bearing on the value or intelligence of their views on anything but highly technical matters which need study. Provided you can understand what they are asking, even if you need to think a bit, you should disregard their spelling and grammar and treat them the same as anyone else. Also bear in mind that many may not be posting in their first language. Many of us might sound pretty stupid trying to post in Japanese, no ?
  • I vote for that.
  • I will apologize up front. I am not a good speller. It seems worse on things like these postings because I don't double check what I write. I hate that & I will try to do better.
  • well if they were using Internet Explorer the spell check is right there in the upper right hand corner.
