So you think that it is ok to insult people's intelligence because they cant spell do you have any idea how many sucessfull people are out there that are not formally educated and likely could not spell worth a damn but are very sucessfull?

When did I say that?

I reiterate : what bothers me (and I think the other posters) is NOT the occasional mistake made by a dislexic person or something who just doesn't pick up on words fast enough to be able to spell them correctly all the time. Once again, what I said was directed at those who refuse to punctuate (you don't have to be a university professor to use commas and periodes. i'm not demanding semi colons here!) and to those who make tons of typos and can't take 3 seconds to read over their posts to correct them. I thought that making your posts legible (for the sake of being politically correct - when you have the ABILITY to make your posts legible) when others are going to read it was just common courtesy.

I'm exagerating for a reason. I wanted to make obvious the fact it's not a little typo or grammatical mistake that bothers me, it's when posts are completely illegible. That was my point, that's why I exagerated my fake post. To show what I find irritating (and I've seen that a few times on this site and that's when I, too, get irritated). To show that most of the time, small mistakes don't bother me so long as I can make sense of what was written.

Actually no, she REPLIED.. Practice what you preach.. I don't mean to come off as rude, but if you're going to preach proper spelling and ask people to double check their posts before clicking on 'submit reply', maybe you should do the same.

Hello all, I am going to post a copy of a genuine email that I recieved after politely pointing out the root of this very threads' content to another user who started a website. I have removed the users name to keep it confidential, but I still have a copy in my inbox to show the time stamp to any non-believers. I figured that if I did this you could all see for yourselves that I am not talking about bashing, insulting, or ridiculing people.


This is my message to him:
"Hello there, I don't want to be rude, but I really think that you should know this. The spelling on your web page is absolutely terrible! If you want to attract any serious clientelle, you need to run spell check before you submit any text to your web page. I am sending you this information in private so that it doesn't embarrass you in public. Please take my advice and redo your web page. I would never buy anything from someone with a web page that looks like that, and I have been keeping and breeding reptiles and exotic animals for 25 years. I hope that you can see that I am only trying to help you. I am not being critical of you, or making fun of you, I just wanted to help.
Take care, Johnny. "

This is his response:
"Thanx man. I do need to do that but unfortunatly my computer got so badly scrued up all i can do is go on internet. Ones i'l fix my computer i will most sertanly ran a spell chack. Cause when i try to update my page it keeps on freezing and i have to unplug the computer cause no buttons even wark. I apresheate for youre concerns. Thanks."


I hope that this clears up the misconceptions and calms the anger.
Take care, Johnny.
