Some of us are more handicapped in this area than others. While the PM software doesn't include a spell checker & it's not cheap to add one, there are free tools to do the job. The google toolbar includes a good spell checker. For Firfox users, you can get it here:

http://www.google.com/tools/firefox/toolbar/FT3/intl/en/index.html

For Internet Explorer go here:

http://toolbar.google.com/T4/?rd=f

These download & install quickly & are easy to use.

There are likely other free tools out there as well. I just happen to know about these.

I'm not picking on anyone. I've been using these things for quite a while. If you want to use them, they're free.

I can spell... I just can't type....lol. What my mind is thinking is seldom what my finger do. I really should go back and check spelling and grammar. Either that or do my posts in word and copy them here.

I hope that was sarcastic. English is not a very phonetic language, and the introduction of "Huked on Foniks" and the teaching of phonetics have destroyed the American language, in my opinion.

I use the Google bar also. Yes some of the spelling is a horror. I don't understand why if there is a tool available that one would be proud of not being able to communicate properly. I can assure you my spelling is nothing to write home about but the checker at least makes me feel that I am not making a complete fool of myself.

Another hit on our language has been phone texting. I can tell when a phone texter posts also.

I think tools like "spell check" are great, but please understand some of us went to school before the days of "no child left without a computer". Having said that, please be kind enough to cut bad spellers a bit of slack and just get back to enjoying this site. Remember, none of us are quite perfect yet. I sometimes get a laugh out of these unintentional spelling horrors and these days that's a gift! The bell rang, school's out!!

it isn't like anyone is grading your paper, but you are trying to communicate. if your spelling is so bad that people don't want to bother wading through it to understand you, you have tools available to easily clean it up a bit.

Since I started this thread most, if not all, major browsers now have spell checking built right in.

Amen Stu! I don't look down on people for the commonly mis-spelled words, but if I have to read a sentence multiple times....then I lose interest pretty quick and move on.

I think anyone who jumps on you for not spelling correctly has
really just stated they have a low IQ level, or just are just
complete bu tt holes, I have the ability to comprehend what
people are trying to write or say, with out being a ahole.

However some peoples writing is unreadable, that's when we have a problem.....

It would help more if pointed out mis spelled words. Then one knows the correct spelling. If use a spell check I dont think many really look to see how it is spelled and just click on the word that looks correct to them. Then if asked how to spell this or that one knows. I would rather know how to spell than use spell check. It dont make one smarter.
How many can look at a name on their phone and know what the number is associated with it?Somethings might make us look smarter but are we really?

Been a long time since browsers started coming with built in spell checking. Now we have smart phones & tablets & more people are using them to post.

And they have auto-correct that thinks it's smarter than the user is scared
