Just putting that out there

If it wasn't for spellcheck you wouldn't be able to read my posts

I think it's mostly my typing, I always skip over words or put the wrong word in.

For me, its written/typed as the words come to mind...hense the running on dots/periods.....like now...as I think to add another thought...

I assumed it wuz fairly normal, and never gave a second thought about it, but got a bunch of shit over it over at CF in the OT and PRC sections...eff em....

I think it was Guru who named the writing style....'stream of consciousness" or something like that.....glad it got a name anyway.....

:shocking:

so if someone can't reed my sin tax....that just 2 dam bad.....

Personally I think spelling is important..........but descent grammar is more important.

It takes me forever (typically) to type a response to someone .... mainly
to make sure I didn't leave any words out and I'm conveying the idea properly.

One missed word can make a world of difference in what your trying to say.

Example: Sanding the clear with P40 grit prior to buffing does work.......oops left out "NOT".
Next thing you know you could get hammered for giving bad advice. :smash:

To many times I have gotten PMs and had to read them a dozen times before I
realized just what it was the person is trying to ask.
That's usually when I say send some pics as well and I'll figure it out.

Yellow73SB, I agree with you ....... all this typing does suck .... but it is a skill
that is good to have and that's why I make myself do it. :thumbs:

Luckily I try not to give advice to people, just in case

I think it's mainly my typing. I'm in English Honors :lol:

Sometimes I re-read my posts and I wonder WTF I'm trying to say :lol:

You should see my posts sometimes. I always get characters typed in the wrong order (like soemthing or rpobably) ...I don't know why, it just happens and a lot of times I am too lazy to correct it or miss it completely :D

Sometimes it's worse even, I'll read my own message and say "WTF does it say there" LOL

This forum is supposed to be like buddys BSing in a garage... right? In which case no one would recall what someone said five minutes ago. The only problem is, here it is recorded. For me at least, it makes me a bit uncomfortable to be recorded, doesn't matter if it is a video tape, audio recoding or I'm writing. I'm trying to get over it though.

By the way I changed three words I was going to use in this post reply because I couldn't spell them and I don't know how to work the spell check on this with an Apple mouse.

Neat little trick....

Generally I am a good speller and not too bad with grammar. I have the google toolbar. So if I run into a word that I think is spelled wrong, I'll go to the toolbar and type it in the search function until the correct spelling comes up.

I agree with SMYDA- spelling and grammar are important. Even more so when you're posting something that could be read by many people. Everyone mis-spells a word now and then, (and some on purpose), but to continually mis-spell the same words over and over? And using grammar correctly is important too- especially when responding to a question.

For a good example, get with a group of guys that use the "F" word 3 times a second. I lose any interest in what they're trying to say pretty fast. Vocabulary counts too.

Typing is a whole different game- my fingers go slower than my coconut so I can't type worth a hoot. But I go back and visually spell check and re-read, then fix the boo-boos I see.
