Check this out. It's called spritzer. You can adjust the words per minute on the right. Your eyes focus on a single spot on the page and each word has one letter in red. Fun to see how fast your mind can actually process and understand. Open link and press play. Starts at 250 wpm

"Pleaded" is what we learned in law school.

If you're going to read it through anyway, why not do it before you post it?

Your guyzes examples are fun. I seen a few of them before.

I hear just about all of these daily. The only one that grinds me is "your guyzes". How was your guyzes trip? I'll just get you some drinks, then take your guyzes order".

To be honest, I really don't know. If I'm posting while at work, I typically try to post as quick as possible just so I can get back to work.

I have always bad about proof reading my papers in high school and college too. Granted I was fortunate enough that we got our first computer in 1993 when I was 7.

Failing to read things through can go well beyond postings on a forum.

Two CPA firms merged and ordered new letterhead with the name of their new firm with the words Certified Public Accountants also on the new letterhead. No one really looked closely at the new letterhead when it came to the office. In fact no one looked closely at it when it was used for a number of letters and used for the opinion letter on some financial statements. As such no one notices that the letter L was left out of the word public. OUCH! I believe someone lost their job over that one.

Our city was merging their Fire and Police departments into one, calling it Department Of Police & Emergency Services. When they first unveiled a police car with the new name in blue, the first letter in each word was bolder and in red. I pointed out the acronym for the new department was D.O.P.E.S.

It was changed very quickly.

Special High Intensity Training acronym doesn't work either.

Not exactly; "I have seen" is a suitable substitution for "I once saw" but not for "I saw".

You just said a mouthful. I don't know how many on here that belong to IRV2, have completed high school and or, any version of college. And, did they pay attention in school or college? Sometimes it's VERY HARD to determine just what is the problem an OP is trying to convey or, ask about because, it's so abstractly written. Nobodies perfect. We're all not English majors. But, there was some basic English and sentence structure in all of our schooling.

Not only that but, in today's computers, the AUTO CORRECT features, i.e. spell check, blue, gray, and red underlining of some words, terms, sentences and more, give LARGE HINTS as to a problem in the way someone has expressed any of those. All that's needed is a right click on the underlined word or phrase etc. and, the auto correct will suggest a better way of writing something.

To me, it just looks and reads better if I try and make sure I don't look like a caveman did the post/thread/writing. It's just not that hard to proofread your own message and see if it reads and sounds correct and you're conveying your thoughts/question(s) correctly so that others don't have to decipher your post(s).

Usually, if you call someone out or, even make a suggestion as to the proper way of posting or, spelling or, anything that relates to correct projection of one's ability to post, you get flamed to death for it. Well, I've got a built in flame suit so, bring it on.
