Yes. All though, I won't be mean to them for not being able to spell right. I'll just hope they'll learn how.

But that's my point, they don't even try. Everyone seems to be content with their ignorance. I find it quite annoying.

It scares me that people seem to think that since this is just a forum, they don't need to use proper grammar skills.

It's like that everywhere on the internet. I don't know how many times I've read an article or interview and the person transcribing it, doesn't have the foresight to crosscheck the spellings of words or the hindsight to proofread their work. It's sad.

I love when people try to justify the fact that they're too lazy to spell properly.

Yea that's rich, too lazy to hit one more button on a keyboard right in front of them. Wow, these are the same people who order five quarter pounders with everything on them but choose to drink a diet coke because they are quote "watching their weight."

Grammar is infinitely more difficult than spelling so don't get so down on yourself. Can you imagine how the english language will be in 20 years though?

Know what else drives me batty? Over use of emoticons. This site does not have emoticons so WHY do people insist on trying?

it seems people get in a hurry and they don't proof read what they are about to send out into the interwebs...for all of us to scrutinize over!

The word is ridiculous -with an "i"-from "ridicule"

[French, from Latin ridiculum, joke, from neuter of ridiculus, laughable]

Since the thread was about spelling -I had to do it.

hehehehehehehehe

just messin' with ya
