  • When posts are really horribly mutilated with bad grammar and misspelled words, I will skip over them. Most people don't use proper spelling or grammar anymore though, so if it is moderately bad I will still have a go at it to see if I can figure out what the poster wants.

  • Nope. We are not here to be perfect and watch our grammar or anything like that.

  • It depends on how bad the post is. If can understand and I have something to say then I answer.

  • some people were not born in an english speaking country, some might be from the USA but they dropped out of school because of hardships, some might have learning disabilities, some do it on purpose to be kool or kewl... so i try to be empathetic.

  • The post has to be really bad for me to skip it.. I really don't care about spelling as long as I can make it out. As for grammar,well as long as I can read it and understand it I'm good... Keep in mind many of the moms are from other parts of the world and english is not their first language. Also this is a relaxed atmosphere or at least it should be.

  • @jnb, I don't mean minor errors...I'm talking about the ones that are too difficult to make sense of. I know I make errors, and that we're not perfect...but sometimes, I wish people would use spellcheck. AnD wHeN pEoPLe TyPe LiKe ThiS, iT dRiVeS mE nUtS. It's unnecessary.

  • I never proof read so I have lost of typos in my posts and comments. This is CM. If someone ignores my posts over it then I really don't care.
