Do you RE-READ what you type?

Before the harpies start in on me...I understand that not everyone on here is fluent in English so some misspellings are understandable.

BUT, if you know how to spell "know" with a "K" then you also know that it ends with a "W" otherwise you would only spell it "no". Don't let me get started on all the extra periods. It seems like some questions are posted via phone (because I too get big fingered when texting) but you can also re-read what you type before you send.

  • Sometimes, the "extra periods" are known as an ellipsis. Ellipsis (plural ellipses; from the Greek: ἔλλειψις, élleipsis, "omission") is a mark or series of marks that usually indicate an intentional omission of a word in the original text. An ellipsis can also be used to indicate a pause in speech, an unfinished thought, or, at the end of a sentence, a trailing off into silence (aposiopesis) (apostrophe and ellipsis mixed). When placed at the end of a sentence, the ellipsis can also inspire a feeling of melancholy longing. The ellipsis calls for a slight pause in speech.
    The most common form of an ellipsis is a row of three periods or full stops (...) or pre-composed triple-dot glyph (…). The usage of the em dash (—) can overlap the usage of the ellipsis.
    The triple-dot punctuation mark is also called a suspension point, points of ellipsis, periods of ellipsis, or colloquially, dot-dot-dot.

  • I try to but sometimes I do still send a mistake. I sometimes will then copy my answer and repost it and fix my errors. And I think I know who you are talking about because you have to decypher what she is saying and it makes my eyes want to cross. Seen any butterfly's lately that weren't blue19? lol
