Yup the website spell checker catches it in IE, FF, or Safari..  Perhaps some java script.

I think all the misspellings are cute, since I can spell to save my ass.. Thank god and/or Turning for computers.

You have to be SO careful when criticising spelling JR....!  Laughing

(although I admit this may be a factual error rather than a spelling one)


Luckily I wasn't being the typical asshole,,, I said I can't spell..and thought it cute.

Turing/turning  yes I need to google my obscure references,,, I was actually a little distracted about the how the rest of the sentence would play, in this PC day and age. This is why editors are paid more than spell checkers, and an example of the kind of errors spell checkers can't fix.

Thank you for the heads up.. Accuracy is probably more important when dealing with the obscure.

Understood. I thought you were actually trying to be the typical asshole as you misspelt 'can't' as 'can'; that combined with the fact that the Turning was the only other misspelling in the post made me take it exactly opposite from how it was intended!

More like I fat fingered it, and I didn't even notice until you mentioned. Hard to proofread yourself...  One trick that helps is reading the copy upside down, but hard to do with my computer.

My mother once had a job as a newspaper proof reader back about a zillion years ago...

My opinion is that there is far too little use of spell checking on these boards. It does no one's reputation any good to keep repeating the same misspellings. There are 24 hours to edit your post to correct it after the fact. If you think it is cute, or doesn't reflect on you or your perception because someone else started it, you are sadly mistaken.

made grumpy by repetition.


So some words were not spelled properly.....big deal. It was/is very easy to understand what he was saying. Side tracking threads with complaints about someones spelling seems more distractive than the misspellings themselves.

Thats my oh so humble opion reggarding tha mater.

"If it's to loud, you're to old."

Try "too".

And shit that's too loud is too loud when you are one year old or 100.

Wish I had figured that out before I did permanent damage to my ears.

My "opion".

No idea why people have to be such assholes on this forum. So I made a spelling mistake or two, big deal. All I can say, grow the fuck up, we all make mistakes, live with it.

Plus the misuse of the word "to" in the tag line. How about adding another "o".

Think of this place like a bar. If you are so thin skinned that  a little light ribbing like this gets your panties all bunched up, then go home or find another bar more to your liking.

Or you could shrug it off and pull up a beer. After you fix your sig.

Yes, we all make mistakes, and I try to fix mine *quickly*, especially in public.

I try not to make people live with my mistakes.....or tell them they need to grow up and live with them.  Not good strategy.

We are all in the "people business", and people skills matter.

Chill, there's a lot to learn here at the LAB.
