  • A typo or two or a randomly misspelled word doesn't bother me. Posts that are difficult to understand because of poor spelling and grammar are very annoying. I don't appreciate text-speak so much either. It makes me kind of sad that so many mothers out there aren't really going to be able to help their children to get a decent education, as they clearly do not see the value.

  • Oh wow, there's a spell check?! Thanks for telling me. I've never noticed that "full editor"-thing before. I can't stand it when I put a lot of effort into an answer, post it and then discover a mistake.

    I know grammar police can be a real pet peeve around here. Sometimes it bothers me, sometimes it doesn't. Depends on my mood. I think what's really bad are people who don't use punctuation. When English is not your native language it can give you a terrible time reading a post.

  • Funny, I just noticed that you posted this in "Health". Aw, it's not worth being mad to the point of getting sick.... lol

  • I use it sometimes. Other times I am in such a rush, I don't. Sorry.

  • I just cannot believe the number of people who don't seem to know the difference between "your" and "you're." I've seen it not just here, but all over and it's sad.

  • A few don't bother me.  They are just minor mistakes.  But when it gets out of hand I usually give up and go on to the next question.

  • It just bothers me when you can't even tell what they mean.

  • woo-saaah..............breath in....breath out. Is this a request for relaxation techniques? blood pressure control? bio-feedback help? when confronting these stress inducing posts?

  • LOL, it's ok sometimes, but I just read a post where almost every word was spelled incorrectly! GRRR
