IÂ don't think it matters to the point you have to hurt someone feelings for leaving out a letter, I have seen posts where a mom seems to be crying out for help,and before a person offer any advice she's telling her,you need toÂ learn how to spell,so who is the more ignorant. I am disabled,because of my disabilities,it's easier for me to use capitals letters in case I write a proper noun, I was told by a mom I was stupid and computer illiterate,because writing with all capitals mean I am yelling, that really hurt me and I felted so ashamed,then I thought about it, this lady knows nothing of me,she didn't know I was disabled,or my fingers hurt really bad when I change from lower case to upper case letters. It takes me a longer time to type now,but,I refuse for someone to speak to me like that again. I think we should look at the posts and not so much at the spelling,the person just may be learning to read.

I think that if you're going to be on the Internet, posting about any sort of random things, then you should check your spelling. I skip over any and all entries that I don't want to have to study before realizing what is being said. There's a spell check button. Use it. As far a children go, my brother has had major problems with his spelling. When he writes anything he spell checks it. When he was in Iraq, we only got three letters from him because it's embarrassing for him to not have a spell check. We spent hours trying to figure out what he was saying. I know it's a problem for some people. But again...use the spell check, just like everyone else.

IMO it matters but spelling things correctly is a big pet peeve of mine. I drive my husband and kids nuts because I'm constantly getting on them for misspelled words. If you're not sure of the spelling look it up or use spell check.

I really hope all the the ladies who hate to see mis-spelled words aren't teachers,because an educator would be fair and understanding,like myself. There are people struggling everyday with reading and writing,have you ever volunteer in a reading setting,when illiterate people learn to read and write ,it give me so much excitement and joy just to see them trying. Like someone else said,a person can be feeling awful,but,by the time she is ridiculed for spelling,she's feeling worse,this is a mothers group,we are to help each other,not put down others,just think about it,you send your child to school,he come and tell you,everyday the kids pick on me because,I'm fat,or I stutter,how would you feel. I have seen mothers post ,please don't bash my spelling,I just came to the US,and because of ignorance,someone will bash.If, you're not going to help the person ,be quiet.
