I'm amazed that people don't know the difference between:

advice and advise

appraise and apprise

sh*t and shineola

Caught my attention if no one else.

This makes me both sloppy and ignorant perhaps, but everyone I know seems to make an honest mistake every once in awhile. Gawd knows I do. But, IMHO, I wouldn't cross the line to refer to them as sloppy or ignorant unless it was a routine - even then, I'm not sure personally I would call em out.

I read a recent study by a college that had intentional misspellings in a paper.
They found that 99% of all people that read the paper understood the message being conveyed. Also many did not even recanonize many of the misspellings.

A forum is a very informal place. Strict spelling, grammar, verbiage, sentence structure and punctuation is not expected. If anyone expects these things, they should not be on a forum.

We will see more of the texting short-cut words in coming days. It is sometimes amazing how messages are even conveyed between people when words are chipped up by many that text all day.

Enjoy the Journey.
Life is too short to worry about someone else s spelling.
Well put and thank you.

The biggest mistake in the English language is the misuse of the apostrophe. It indicates the possessive, not the plural. Where do folks get this?

I have a pen pal in Canada who put's an apostrophe on every word that end's with an "s".

In searching for a used RV, I find that one of the most misused words is "new".

"..., new tires, ..."
The owner assures me he bought new tires. Technically true. The tires were new when they were installed five years ago.

I don't care about the spelling if the response answers the question or provides possible solutions or asks for help with a specific problem. I don't think the spelling is all that important in this type of forum. Just me.

I don't mind the occasional misspelling. It's the members who refuse to use a , and/or . and write a 8-10 line paragraph without capitals at the start of a new sentence. Do you talk that way? Put the comma where you would take a breath when talking. I actually have a couple on ignore for that and I'm sure some people have me on ignore for various reasons.

More RV's for sale ads:

"On the Right is the Bathroom with Nice Stool, Cabinet, Medicine Cabinet, Mirror and Corner Glass Shower."

Again, technically correct, but worth a smile.

Dunner,
I agree with you. I won't waste my time trying to decipher that kind of post.
A misspelled word is just that, but refusing to use punctuation and capitalization is just lazy and I'm not going to spend my time trying to figure out what someone is attempting to say, if they aren't putting out any effort to be understood.
