Doesn't it annoy you...

When you make one simple mistake in a post. One little error. There is someone to always point it out. They don't answer your post they just point out the error. Like you mix two letters around in a word, example becuase when it's suppose to be because. Simple error from maybe typing to fast. I just want to plaster this under everyone names that bashes for the simplest spelling mistakes. Even if you know what the poster is saying there always has to be that one person.

  • That drives me nuts because I am the world's worst typist and speller. If you can read the question then for the love of Pete let it go. Plus the ones that bash for spelling tend to be the ones who disagree with you. You never see someone bash spelling then agree with your post. lol

  • I agree.. If its nothing helpful to the post or your own OP then you shouldn't post something just to try and make someone feel stupid or whatever thy are trying to do

  • Yep, sure do. I can't stand people like that, that have to point out every little mistake. It's like, "get a life if you have nothing better to do than go around correcting people on Cafemom". :)

  • I was taught it's not nice to correct others unless you are their teacher :)

  • I should have written, "yep, sure DOES". I'm surprised no one has corrected me so far, lol!

  • If I can't understand what the post is saying, I'll ask, lol.  If I understand what the poster is saying, I don't comment on misspellings.  What's the point, lol.

  • It bothers me sometimes, but somethimes I appreciate it. I do not want to continue to misspell words. If I were to write board instead of bored, I would want someone to point it out to me.

  • Actually hadn't noticed it that much lately. The one who seemed the most fanatical about it seems to have disappeared recently.
