This might be fun, I will have to remember spell check. I usually write the way I talk, TEXAN.

I find that this will come in handy for me as I have a neuromuscular disorder that wreaks havoc  with my typing.

Reading through some of the messages posted here, I can't believe anyone would find it too hard to hit a button(spellcheck) before the (post) button. Too not care is ignorance at it's best and a little disrespectful and then to comeback and refuse to spell check, Epoman you have alot more patience than I do.

Out of respect of the other posters and moderators I am more than happy to spell check first. Guess what? It makes me look alot smarter than I am too, and it's painless!

I too have peeves so I am sympathetic towards Epoman's request for a bit of effort.

For instance it's/its, site/sight, they're/their/there, to/too/two, then/than, accept/except ... the list is very long ... my point is that if you're taking the time to write something then you must want what you write to impact the reader ... the better you write the more impact you will have ... sometimes we just need to be reminded of the obvious.

I am in total agreement.  Subject/verb agreement is also something important.  I went into a bank today and there was a notice put up, but there was a glaring grammatical error.  I was embarrassed for them.
Some years ago I told someone that the advent of the technology aid has given us the capacity to put some horrible grammar in some exquisite high-tech formats!  How can you have a notice looking so perfect in terms of graphics and fonts and then have less than correct grammar/spelling/punctuation??
Forgive this English teacher's rant.

I agree with you all.  Even though I am terrible typist I am proofreading before posting.  I don't always catch everything, but I am trying.  I hate the words mines.  Such as when a child is telling me "that pencil is mines."   WTF????  When did mine become plural???  When did the kid become plural?
I made him correct his English, but he could not do it.  It was funny conversation.

I find people from other countries usually have the hardest time with these but also people with learning disabilities. Not all people who type in bad grammer can be assumed to be young kids that don't care. That is not always the case.

Hi, I just joined. I read the message.  I will do my best. It's actually a good thing. I have lost all my good spelling habits due to chats. LOL   I probably won't be posting much, anyway. :)

I like the spellcheck; even though it doesn't correct everything it helps a lot.  But, the best thing I can do for my spelling and grammer is to not post after 11 PM.  Those 2 or 3 AM posts sometimes take three or four spell checks. ;D

Oh my.....

I wish I'd read this before I posted in off-topic about the spell-checker not recognizing some of the most commonly used dialysis terms.  I really did just think it was funny - I didn't realize the spellcheck was one of epoman's pet peeves.

Sorry!

I alway use the spell check anyhow, since I tend to type fast and invert letters a lot.

I am writing this as a reminder... to no one in particular... but it's because I often forget myself, and have to go back and fix my posts later!

Use the spell check!

I have to remember to use speel chack (hehehe that's for Kitkatz) but I will try harder too.
I think it's distracting to read a post with a lot of errors and as Epoman said "Take pride in your posts!"

I just read this again because much of the problems we recently had with a member simply started because they were asked to use spellcheck. This reminds me how things escalated over what seems like a reasonable request.

Epoman;  I understand your frustration with spelling and grammar. However, if you notice your own first post has a spelling error in it. ("typing to fast" instead of "typing TOO fast').  And I'm only pointing that out because this is supposed to be  a safe place. People make mistakes. There's nothing wrong with checking your posts before clicking send (it annoys me too) but nobody's perfect. Thanks!   :waving;
