Re: Found a Spelling Error

I believe it was Mark Twain that said, "It takes a shallow mind to only spell a word one way." or maybe it was Samuel Clemens... anyway you get my drift.

Re: Found a Spelling Error

Their might be spelling erors wearever you look.
On some page's youll see lost apostrophies.

on others you might see an absolute complete lack of capitalization or punctuation or paragraphy all of that stuff really drives me nuts because its hard to read and it makes my head hurt i wonder is it just me? is it ok to do that or is it wrong? well at any rate ramble on posts with missing punctuation make me crazy even crazier than mis-spelled words although there is a built-in spell checker that should help to eliminate most spelling mistakes but some people are able to ignore that squiggly little red line under their text
