Lynnvt, Thank you.
Thats how I feel.
There are plenty of sites that I no longer frequent because EVERYTHING is judged by someone. Here, it does not matter what rig you have, or how much money you have, or what you beliefs are, or if you are good at spelling,
All are included At least that is how I feel here.

Four example; a paragraph could have mini flaws but wood bee past by the spell checker. And it wont catch the sentence fragment which you. Their fore, the massage is that proofreading is knot eliminated, it is still berry muck reek wired.

If reading mis-spelled words was all I had to be concerned about, I would be one happy camper.

In the dark ages when I attended high school, English lit was an elective. It was the best class I took and has been invaluable all my life. I believe it was our teacher's first and last job. She is on longer with us but is fondly remembered by several generations of her students. She was responsible for converting a great number of pupils into students. She is a legend.
I'm guilty of losing my grasp of spelling and usually edit after posting.
I fully agree that the language should be preserved. It is the most expressive language in the world and does not need improvement.
I am more irritated by deplorable grammar in advertising and the media. I will go to some extremes to avoid doing business with any company that thinks they can "grow" my stocks, or business. When I hear someone speaking about growing their children, I ask what the best fertilizer is.
The news media is just insulting to any reasoning mind.
I must add trendy speak to the list of irritations.
This has been on my mind for far too long. Thank you for the opportunity to vent.

bad spelling does bug me. I wonder how much is actually not knowing how to spell and how much is their fingers getting in each others way when typing.

What bothers me more than anything else is going to a store, ringing up $ 4.96, giving the cashier $ 5.01 and them staring at me trying to figure out how much change I get.

I try to go back and look for spelling errors...My biggest problem is my fat fingers and never learing to type..... You can generally spot typing errors vs. misspellings.

well, I do know I "Spell Better" on my desktop, just by knowing which computer I was using on which day. Desktop at home (Standard Keyboard) and Laptop on the road (Kind of small Keyboard) for Big Hands!

We are in a new age of enlightenment and we people of experience [old folks] have to adjust to this new age.

We must accept that every sentance must begin with
"LIKE". As in "LIKE you know , it was really big".

Someone earlier mentioned the term [Growing a business]. This is now a common term used on TV NEWS.

This is all part of the NEWSPEAK era we are in now.
Previously very popular in Nazi Germany in the Reich years.

Since children are having children and the child-like parents never learn anything to begin with, the only source of education available now is the TUBE. [Television]

Once thought of as the ultimate device for teaching the masses, television now is the greatest UN-educating device ever invented.

It teaches that true love can only be found if you are drinking alcohol and driving drunk.[Booze ads]

It shows the young that the only way to drive is fast and dangerously.[car ads]

"He who knows not that he knows not" is educated by the TV now. It tells him or her what to eat,what is good and bad and how much fun killing can be when glued to a PC Game screen.

The future will be something to see as this trend expands.
Where "Like um ya no" becomes the accepted begining of every sentence, while at the same time "Growing" our civilization into the future speaking in groups of letters.
[DSL-DSLAM-db-DW-DH-OBTW-DW-HN-IMHO and my all time favorite WTFC,which should be emblasioned on the American flag.

WTFC best describes the attitudes of the 21st century. I am so very, very sorry for our children. They must live with our uncaring attidudes.

I'm glad I won't be here to see it transpire.

I am a graduate of the U of Wasamata.
You know. Wasa mata you?
No more RV'ing. Sold it.

Mediocrity is fast becoming the accepted standard.

Too many accept "good enough" as "good enough".

From what I can tell, I got my answer. Yes. It appears that "good enough" is "good enough".

Now thats all we need, a bunch of anal english majors venting I'm with the group that forgives those who hated english class. As long as I can understand yer point yer OK with me. As a matter of fact it's those silver tongued word smiths that usually p--- me off, talking over everyones heads.

Get a life.


But I don't deserve that. Actually, I was a math major. And yes, I do have a life. That doesn't mean I am a wordsmith, and I haven't been talking over anybody's heads.

So that p___ed ME off!!! Try being civil instead of a complete a$$!!!
