Honestly, it does bother me a little - like if I 'm reading a novel - like Mercedes Lackey and there are so many misspelling and grammatical mistakes, it pulls me out of the story. You'd think that with so many books, she could hire a good editor. I spell words wrong at times on mylot - like you because I'm speeding along, trying to get my thoughts down fast. You know, its a dam^^ poor mind that can only think of one way to spell a word. So think of yourself as creative!

Hi, Thanks again. Yes if I am reading a book i would not like that. If you have a book you would think you would make sure it is Right. Yes i just want people to like me for me and to answer becuase you like what i have to say. Sometimes i am not sure what discussion to start.

You hit the nail on the head. Like you for you and what you have to say - I mean - when it comes down to it - its what you have to say - not how you say it that counts. There are people with excellent spelling and a large vocabulary - who have absolutely nothing to say. So they might go on and on - but they're just saying nothing with excellent spelling and big words.

I use the Firefox and use the speller checker here. There are some words that I have difficulty with, like restaurant, occasions, similarity, and for some reason I did not have to correct these words. I also sometimes reverse my letters. I found that when you get so many posts, the speller checker comes on at myLot. Just keep on practicing, and use the spell checker. Soon it will work for you.

Thanks. I will try but i dont know how to use the spell checker. Do you mean it will come on by itself? I alos dont know much about firefox. Well i dont know anything bout it.lol!!! Thanks Again!!

Misspelled words are easily understandable but it still bothers me. The newest version of Firefox may help you because it has a built-in spell checker feature that is very useful even for professional writers.

Yes, it can be used here. It's their new feature that checks your spelling each time you type in any webspace.

I used to be really nit-picky about spelling. But now it doesn't bother me as much. Although, if I want others to read what I've written, I realize it's important to spell correctly. But just for e-mailing, myLot, & conversational writing (as opposed to literary writing), I don't really care if others can spell or not - just so I can understand what they're trying to say.

Yeah I understand what people mena and it doesn't bother me.I can't spell sometimes right either,but so what?Enlgish is not my mother language,so it is not that bad.I read something that if we write first three letters of word correct we know what word it is even if the other letters and spelt wrong.So don't worry.
