Do you edit typos in your MyLot posts and comments?

I must have been distracted. I typed "your" when I meant "you're" in a comment on another's post on MyLot this morning. I posted it, read it, and recoiled in horror. Visions of @Maluse descending on me flooded my mind. I immediately fixed the error, breathed a sigh of relief, and brewed up my second cup of coffee as I calmed down. Do you fix typos in your MyLot writing when you catch them?

Some aren't really typos. They're brainos. Spell-check wont catch it when people use "there," their" and they're" wrong.

@TheHorse Oh ok. I`m not too much familiar with brainos but I agree with you because not all understand when to use each of them

@TheHorse That's for sure. You misspelled they're as their in one of your responses. Too many people don't care about spelling and the proper use of grammar in their responses.

@thehorse I feel embarrassed if a word is incorrectly spelled in my head when I speak it aloud.

You may have me beat there. But some basic words give me fits, like "restaurant."

Sometimes I do, pony, but not always. It really depends on whether I mind bothering the person I wrote the comment to or not. If the comment wasn't important, then I usually won't send another notification to who ever I addressed the comment to... Most of the time, if I correct a typo, I write edit to correct and what type of correction I made. At least that way whoever the comment was written to won't wonder what is going on.
