why do some moms like to CORRECT others spelling??

I see plenty of questions where some trolls just answer by correcting the spelling rather than answering the question! Most questions just have minor stuff. You can still understand it! I think its very rude! if you can understand it just answer it not be a rude mom!

  • I only do it when the person is being a b**** and trying to degrade someone else. Otherwise, I couldn't care less...I know I'm a good speller, but I don't have to rub it in other people's faces...

  • Oh, but it does annoy me when people use netspeak. I won't correct it, though. I just move on without answering...

  • Well, sometimes their no excuse for misspelled words because we do have a spell checker and it should be used. It’s laziness at times of not catching themselves.

  • Frustrated teachers or critical to a fault. It's more than stupid since anyone can make a mistake when they are writing quickly. There are so many more important things to do with time, don't ya think?

    You, in fact, have two errors, which I have capitalized for you. It would be There and Mispelled . . . looks like someone forgot to use their spell checker!!!
