If you misspell or misstate something in a response to a question and you realize it after posting it, do you rectify it?

I always try to because I know how much it irks me, and I live by the "golden rule".

  • Sometimes I do. It depends on how big the mistake I made was. Before they deducted points I always did, but now it has to be pretty bad for me to worry about it.

  • Sometimes.It depends on the question I answered. I may lose 5 points, but I can get them back.

  • I don't delete..
    If I rectify.. It's by typing out another "answer" with my ooopsies/apologies and the corrected error.. I don't always do this. But sometimes I do, especially if the error changes the meaning/conotation or feel of what I have written.

  • OMG I don't give a flying f... about points, I don't pay attention to that high school crap. I'm sooooo tired of hearing about it! I wish we had the option to remove comments, like you can on FB on this site!

  • I'm pretty sure I've had to do this a time or two...but I try to read through my response before I hit "answer question" or whatever. And then sometimes I'm just too tired:)

  • Do you lose points if you delete.. ?

    I don't delete because I'm too lazy to... LOL

    I don't find mistakes until usually quite a bit of time after I've posted my answer. So, I just put a new answer that's corrected, and it usually as some addendums to it as well..
