  • Yes! I just want to go back and edit all those typos or spelling errors in other peoples' posts!

  • Not on websites like this. I am a Legal Transcriptionist so that is basically what I do all day is type and make sure the grammar and typos are correct. So when I'm typing like I am now, if I make a mistake or something, I could care less. And if somebody else does it, who cares. They are probably just typing fast because as we all know moms don't have too much time to spare.

  • Only with other peoples grammar. It's lose not loose! I saw that one today.

  • My own, yes. Others maybe not so much as long as it's just typos (they happen). I tend to ignore posts written in "chat speak" or as if they were texting.

    If they want to chat or text, they can go elsewhere. If they are seriously wanting help then they can take the time to post a decently written question so it can be understood by all. If they can't do such a simple thing then I feel they don't really need help.

  • I am guilty. I try and proof read my posts before I send them. Some of the keys on my keyboard aren't as sensitive as they should be and letters get left out. As far as other people's posts I can handle the spelling typos, but the puncuation/grammer drives me nuts. There are some posts with no periods or capitals. You can't tell where one sentance ends and another begins. I've always been like that. I will go into restaurants and correct their signs, lol.
