:lolsign: I agree with flacorps... I can't stand mispelled words. Goes back to spelling bee contest and the numerous ones I won :lol: However, I do realize that sometimes we are in a hurry and don't bother to do a spellcheck because we want an answer NOW :)

We're just funny that way. I cringe when I see earlier posts where I was frustrated and it was late and had a mispelled word. The time passed by to edit and I have to live with it :oops:

Sad part is you can make out complete jibberish, yet can't make sense out your credit card agreement. :?

My spelling pet peeve is "loose" instead of "lose." It's one of those words that spellcheck won't pick up on, though, because "loose" is also a word. "Definately" instead of "definitely" is another one that makes me cringe. (I also won my 3rd grade spelling bee! :lol:)

OMG, yes! "Loose" vs "lose" is right up there with "advise" vs "advice."

I was a proofreader for years and basically got "spellchecked" out of my job. People tend to believe that with spellchecker, they don't need a proofreader, which belief has led to the proliferation of web sites, advertising, magazines, etc. that look like they were put together by illiterate children. <sigh>

In all my being anal about spelling and grammar, I must confess....

Up until pretty recently, I spelled it 'definately'.

:cry::cry::cry::cry: I did not know the error of my ways. Please forgive me, my fellow writers! :cry::cry::cry::cry:

Ok, this thread has been dead for like 4 months now....but I had to bring it back to vent.

People, when someone is coming over, they are COMING over. They aren't COMMING over. <:)

And we aren't doing DISBUTES. We're doing DISPUTES.

Thank you.

Sorry...just been noticing things a lot lately. :?
