    It's human nature.

    I believe it is a question of how we wish to present ourselves to those who may get to know us in cyberspace.
    i beleve is a question of how we wanna be presented in public by peoples who git to no what i be like.

    Re: Why doe's everyone not use spell check?

    OK!! I did not intend to start a cat fight. Good spelling is something I have worked at for years. My boss used to have a very quick blue pencil and I loved to find him wrong. Since then I have had Spell Check to go up against and enjoy improving myself. I almost always use it to check myself. I feel that good spelling is necessary to properly express ones self. Sorry guys. and gals. and everyone else that would take umbrage. Bob hehehe I did it here too. B

    It seems strange that anyone should choose to post to internet forums, and to ignore the easy availability of the spell check function. It is also strange that anyone upon not knowing how to spell a word, or the definition of a word would not at least make use of the Google search engine that all of us have access to.

    When I see a post that is full of spelling and grammar errors that is written by an adult whom is ignoring the spell check option, I just move right along. I figure that if they do not take the contents of their post seriously, then I do not need to either.

    After all..... who wants to hear the idea of someone about anything if they will not even take time to spell it correctly?
    Oh my! You must be an English major? I find the little quirks we all have amusing & delightful. including misspelled words. I like to "augment " my grammar depending on the story I am telling. It is part of the the magic of story telling. For this post I used spell check just for y'all. & I don't know if you realize this , but there were some folks in school that had more important things on their minds, like girls/boys, parties & oh yes where they were going to get their next meal. My daughters high school class was full of farmers kids, & you can bet when spelling & verbs & such came up, they were more than likely thinking of the hay being ruined if they didn't get home before a storm broke. or how they were going to be able to get the homework done when they had to be on the combine 'til 3 in the morn. Be pleased we can express ourselves in a manner that suits each individual, & life is too short to worry 'bout spelling.

    Caution! There was no spell check used in this post!
    Hmmm. I seem to be a little testy before my morning coffee kicks in.

    Perhaps with the advent of "texting", proper spelling and grammar are falling by the wayside?!
    But how quaint to reminisce about the days when persons actually had time to comport themselves
    in compositional propriety.

    Re: Why doe's everyone not use spell check?

    i don't. Know for the most part i,
    think everone can read thisif,
    they realu want. to

    Fact is it is very rare things get that bad except
    in posts like this where sarcasim comes out.

    Most of my errors are caused by 3 things.

    Posting in a Hurry, Typing with one finger in the dark,
    and not proof reading, although there are a few
    words for some reason even though I can spell
    them I always Misspell them anyway.

    "Everyone" for some reason is one.
    That y gets elusive

    Re: Why doe's everyone not use spell check?

    when i type i never use this key " ' " EVER! if i want to type "dont" thats how i type it!
    i dont waste my time with the extra key to make it read "don't"
    i have a piece of paper from USF that clearly says i have "done well" (aka English degree) in English...so i dont need to prove it
    on the internet!
    and i agree... people should never be picked on based on how well they spell.

    today and everyday ...... happy go lucky to be alive
