  • Most of the time I'm on the web mobile and many times mispell thing or hit too mant keys. I don't think it matters if there are mispelled words or if the grammer is wrong. As long as they get their question across :)

  • I usually don't worry about it, but I will sometimes politely point out something small, just so they are aware they are using the wrong word altogether...like "vales" instead of "vows".... cuz it doesn't make sense and wanted them to know its a totally different word. otherwise I could care less, just trying to be helpful.

  • I don't bash people for poor grammar, but there are some posts on here that I refuse the answer because the grammar/spelling is so poor it's hard to even understand what they are asking!

  • Is it okay? Well, I guess so since this is a public forum. It's petty though. If you watch those that complain about the spelling, ironically they usually misspell things too.


    Don't sweat it. It's a public forum. Take what you like and leave the rest.

  • Sometimes I will correct people on their spelling and/or grammar, but I don't do it to be rude, or to bash people. I see the same common mistakes, over and over, and I know people are doing it with out realizing they are wrong. Unless those people are corrected, they will continue to make the same mistakes, over and over for the rest of their lives. (If it's obviously just a typo, I leave it alone, because I sometimes have typos too)

    I'm talking about when people completely use the wrong word, such as accept/except, since/sense, and so on. It's a habit I've developed over the years, and I probably drive my kids more nuts than anyone on here, since they have to live with me and my constant corrections.

  • Every mom should know that kids can mess up your typing skills. lol No need to bash for spelling.

  • Personally I find that those who need to correct another person's spelling and grammar are CONTROL FREAKS.. They think that somehow the fact that they have made such a big deal out of something so trivial is going to change another person's spelling.. I know for me it makes me want to intentionally go visit their page and leave about 500 chatter comments with millions of spelling mistakes.. I have never done that.. But dang it is tempting.

    Personally I find people who do this kind of badgering and bashing.. ARE JUST IMMATURE AND NEED TO FIND SOME WAY IN WHICH THEY ARE SUPERIOR TO ANOTHER PERSON!
