spelling errors?

If you see a spelling error in someone's post... do you want to say something?
I do! I am by no means a great speller, but when I see that someone has posted a wrong word I want to correct it, lol! I know that is rude of me... lol!

  • I sure do. I will correct it, too, if the misspeller is being a bi-atch.

    I don't think it's rude though, because what if that person thinks it's correct?? It would be doing her a favor to correct her so she doesn't make the same mistake over and over.

  • It only bothers me if there are several words that are not spelled correctly.

  • I don't care for chatspeak, but spelling errors don't bother me. Although in my own posts they do. I don't know how often I've read my answer and deleted and reposted because I see a spelling error. Sometimes I just think whether I can stand having the error, but usually I just delete and repost.

  • It only bothers me when it's obvious that it is not a typo. I am the worst speller in the world now that I have learnd to rely on my spell check. In the chat rooms, I am un readable.
