Your right though, decent spelling and punctuation is nice.
Personally I always have problems with correct use of the apostrophe
and too or to. No doubt there are others I just haven't even realised, I work on it though.
I don't like spell checkers, I don't believe they improve your skills, much
better to look it up in the dictionary, be that book or online version.
Literary skills are also a poor indicator of a person, regardless of what most females will tell you.
felonius,couldn't agree more.Somedays I am using the dictionary more than others.Obviously on a profile it shows laziness and lack of thought if there are lots of typos.However if a message is thoughtfully constructed then a few spelling mistakes make no difference to how I perceive the messenger.
yo yo,wots up,wots happening,wot you doin etc make me grind my teeth,and my response is usually...nothin'
Many very intelligent people are dyslexic and to dismiss what they have to say would be stupid.x Hugs H
Got me Leah...Dohhh another mistake....lol
Something else to work on.
one of the most adorable older gentleman I know constently uses text speak in our communications and it doesnt bother me a bit.
My fingers and brain are often working at different speeds (different planets sometimes to - or is it too ) thus my spelling and grammar is often left to the wayside.
As long as I can understand what they mean then I dont mind. Besides with so many with ESL in this lovely country a little lee way is appreciated. Its a much easier language to learn to speak than it is to write.
Proof read before you post.
Of course if your a dumbo like me, you might not even realise.
was the name of the thread...OP wooduck78x Hugs H
Didn't think we were here for spelling. Pms yes maybe lmao. We all come from different walks of life. So live with it
As you said," We all come from different walks of life. So live with it"
What makes you think literary endeavours, aren't about sex to some.
Tolerance and an open mind is a big plus in this place.
