~You know… I notice that some people complain about proper spelling and punctuation a bit TOO much at times. Not that this applies to the Trolls at all, but I just thought I’d point out that some people do genuinely have trouble with their spelling. Even when they do look over their spelling and try to correct as much as they can, it’s not that easy for the folks who actually have severe dyslexia. I have a few friends that can’t spell worth a damn. And yeah, it’s sometime frustrating to try and make sense of their typing, but I’m patient about it and cut them some slack, because I know it’s not their fault.
My best friend of eight years is very intelligent, speaks and reads well, and loves to learn about new things. Although she failed English in high school, and often times used to ask me how to spell words as simple as “education.” She’s not stupid or retarded. She just has a very hard time with spelling. And nearly EVERYONE she talks to online jump down her throat about not being able to spell correctly, and because of that she barely comes online anymore.
And it’s not just her, this happens to a lot people. Now, I’m not saying that ALL poor spelling is excusable. The folks who type “I” as “i” and type “You are” as “UR”… the ones who don’t even bother to add commas, periods or use capital letters are just being bloody lazy. But even if someone deliberately types like a dumbass, it doesn’t mean that others have to be so very snippy and insulting about it. Everyone typos as well. I know I do wuite frequently, and sometimes I don’t notice it until after I’ve already made a post.
Not everyone is an English Major, so folks please keep that in mind before you decide to tear into someone who’s spelling is absolutely atrocious. Unless it’s a Troll. Then it’s okay. ;) Hopefully he keeps on coming back to listen to the Gryphy’s rants that he so very much despises until his head explodes… or something. :-P~
Yep. And that’s all I have to say about that.
