My opionions and whatever other insane idea I think of

This was in an email I got a few days ago. Believe it or not, you can read it.

Honestly, when it comes to my spelling, I really try to spell things right, but I can't all the time and I really am not that worried about it. I don't think I want to come off as being a perfect speller, I'm not, never have, never will be. I try, but that's all I can do. I don't like typing this stuff up in Word just for the spell checker, seems pointless to me, especially since my MS Word takes about 5 minutes to load. I post on the forums for debate and information, not grammar and spelling. As long as I can understand what the person is trying to say, I'm good. Besides, I'm writing these with what little time I have for myself, that is to say, when my kids are sleeping, be it naps or in bed for the night. I'm not going to take time from them for a blog. It's not that important to me. I come here for debates and intelligent discussions, that's all. I try hard not to insult or hurt others feelings, call them names. If I'm fighting a losing battle, I'll just not post anymore, simple as that. I have done it on my own articals, and just quit articals that come down to name calling and insults. I don't know anyone here well enough to insult them, and I still haven't blacklisted anyone.

AND THIS ISN'T A POKE AT ANYONE!!!!! Lets try not to make it one..... Please?

Not only do we misspell when we type fast, just to get a point across, sometimes we have keyboard issues. I bought one of those Microsoft comfort keyboards, hopefully to relieve the stress on my arthritic elbows and wrists (which it doesn't). It came with a mouse, and both keyboard and mouse are wireless, which I like, particularly the mouse. However, regardless of the condition of the battery, or the software reporting excellent reception between the keyboard and the receiver on my desk, it sometimes misses. Sometimes, I have to keep hitting keys to get it to register; sometimes, I have to move my keyboard around to get it to register. It's a real pain. It sometimes results in misspellings, lost letters, and lost spaces.

But, count on lil whip to point out my every single mistake. For one who claims such moral high ground and self-rightousness, she really seems to spend an inordinate amount of time calling me to task on stuff, blaming me (wrongly) for for others' posts and posting from work, to just plain name-calling. So, she continues to harass me wherever I post, in the hopes that I'll get pissed enough to articulate here wht I think of her in some manner that she can take some uncharacteristic higher ground, at which point she and her appendage, drmiler, can get me banished from the forums. I do not go around posting about her (except here), or following her, or even posting at all in her blog, though she has not blacklisted me. You can be sure, I've blacklisted her. But, she just doesn't stop her nasty lil game.

Hence, her latest preoccupation with my spelling.

First off we don't need to do anything except point it out to admin. You'll take care of the rest all by yourself. In time you'll self destruct all on your own. And would you like me to post "all" the things that you have posted about LW? Starting with this one? There was "absolutely" no reason to bring either of our names into your reply was there? Nuff said. Rant off. Sorry about the seeming hijack msladydeath.
Back on topic. "Some" misspelled words are to be expected. Consistently doing so is an entirely different thing. And that e-mail you got was simply atrocious.

Not a problem, this wasn't ment against anyone, and LW isn't the only one that has corrected my spelling. Many, MANY times in the past.

"Some" misspelled words are to be expected. Consistently doing so is an entirely different thing.


I know. I also know I just can't spell dispite my best efforts. It's a diagnosed learning disability that took me years to get to where I'm at (as far as spelling goes). I'm proud of the fact that I can spell as well as I do, and continually try to work on the works I have problems with.

And that e-mail you got was simply atrocious


LOL, yes it was! If you kinda skim it though instead of trying to out and out read it, it is rather easy to understand. Blew me away when I got it in my email.

If I had gotten the email, the first thing I would have had to do is pick myself up off the floor from laughing too hard.

Try not using MS Word's spell checker and use IEspell when posting. Since it loads with explorer it takes no time at all.

And once we get the spelling down pat, the grammar nazis can come in and eliminate these GHASTLY hanging prepositions!

Thank you very much DrMiler.

I can stand misspellings...once in awhile. It's when words are so horribly misspelled that they could possibly be pretty much anything in the dictionary.

I can too. I just find it saddening and somewhat scary that some of the highschoolers here (the chicks seem to be the worst) have such atrocious spelling that I can't understand what they're trying to say.
