Betrayed by my own laptop...

May 8, 2012 10:20pm CST
Just this morning i decided to go into the discussion i have started. I felt embarrassed with what i have found out...its my spelling gone bad... I am not really particular with grammar because i am not expert to that but at least not the spelling. From my discussion review i found out that my invitation became imbitation. How bad is that? I'm wondering because every time i made a discussion i always recheck my spelling with my laptop, anyway that's the careless side of me and poor laptop shes the one who was blamed...just a joke...but i am thankful for those responder who manage to understand what i really mean even with a bad spelling.I just hope that i can find a way on how to edit an already posted discussion...

i have noticed a lot here with typing errors, but i think it is minimally significant as long as one could very well understand what you are trying to present as a discussion. Sometimes the grammar is far more worse as it could be somewhat misleading as compared to the spelling problem.

It might be due to auto-correct on your computer. Sometimes when we type something, then our computer will still automatically correct the the word for us if they think it is a mistake. Also, perhaps you were in a hurry and therefore you just typed too fast which led to the wrong spelling. What browser are you using? because i am using chrome and whenever I make a spelling error, it will be underlined in red which I think it is really helpful.

hahahaha.. i also made a mistake like this. though i think it's not my laptop's mistake but rather mine or my fingers. i used the word taught instead of thought.

You don't need to feel bad about it, every one makes mistake. We all want to have it perfectly, grammars, spellings and the way we deliver our thoughts but sometimes we cannot avoid having some errors. At least mylot members are smart enough to understand what we are trying to say. I also wish that we can still edit our comments or discussions even after we have posted it.

Oh boy, that is embarrasing. I try really hard to make sure that my spelling is correct and sometimes its not. I dont have an automatic spell check in the browser that I am using so it doesnt tell me when I have something wrong. Or offer the corrected spelling. So when I think am not sure of the spelling I will look it up in the dictionary. It takes a little more time, but its worth it. I post a lot of poetry in some groups that I belong to. I actually used to be a very good at spelling, but now I find I have a little more trouble with this. I also type pretty fast but that creates a buch of typos that I have to correct as I go. I hope you find a way to correct it. Can you delete the discussion and start over? ~C~

You are not alone. I have had some bad spelling mistakes. I think most probably it is because I am very fast when typing. I usually laugh back at myself whenever I recheck a discussion and find out those bad spellings.

Yeah, you can't edit it once you've posted it. If you constantly have problems with spellings, there's a "preview" button right beside the "post". You can proof read using this feature, plus, you'll see how your discussion looks like after you've posted it.

If you want to preview your post and edit it before posting, just go to 'preview post' button instead of the 'post' button. This way you can check your spelling and grammar and change it it needs to be changed.
