  • Most of the time I just say "Screw it" because (while my typo drives me nuts) I don't want to be annoying by posting again to correct it. I would probably have to do that too many times, ya know?!!

  • If I just can't stand it, I'll post another answer correcting my mistake.

  • Sometimes, if I made a bunch of them or if it wasn't obvious what I was trying to say. If it was only one or two I usually don't bother.

  • not usually cause I am normally a bad speller so if I misspelled a word more than likely I didn't know it was misspelled lol

  • Always. Typos and misspelled words drive me bonkers.

  • Most times I try and correct it, some times I hit enter before I see it. Some times some a- - has to tell you you can't spell.

  • No. I have before and was accused of backpedaling because I deleted and re-posted with correct spelling. I think the anon posts that are patronizing when they correct someone else's spelling just show how petty some people are and they obviously know it because they post anon. Misspelled words don't bother me as much as text typing. U does not mean you. R does not mean are. You have over 900 characters to post an answer here, no need to limit ourselves. JMO.
