  • While it irritates me to see words misspelled of the wrong form of a word being used (there instead of their for instance), I do not correct the person. It's not worth my time and frustration. I just wish they would think and use the spell check before hitting enter.

  • uhm sometimes i do...not if the accidentally put the words in the wrong place like tihs or something because yeah thats just a typo.

    but some words that are obviously spelled incorrect i do. just because i would want someone to let me know how to spell it correct for the future. i like to better myself when possible. :) i dont want to be an old lady and spelling words wrong left and right :) and how else would you learn if someone doesnt tell you how?

  • LOL!! See, I just re-read my post again and I used the wrong word. No one's perfect. That's why I don't try and correct others!!

  • No. People get up in arms, and if I can figure out what they are saying there is no need to go there. What irritates me is when people talk like they are from the ghetto. If you are raising kids I hope you do not talk that way around them. Ignorance is bliss I guess lol.

  • Careful Lovin, last time I said something like that I got reported. Yet people can post questions that are obviously asked to start trouble. It makes no sense.
