I try to. I agree with Donna D. I do see on other forums where some attempt to devour someone for a misspelling or a long paragraph. I always think they need to get a life if they have nothing better to do, and I tell them what I think about their approach. It is especially rewarding if the one doing the correcting has a mistake in their post. The "devil" insists that I point that out to them! Sometimes the "devil" just overpowers my better judgment.

I was a Lil Snoozy when I wrote that but at least I didn't put my Biggar Big Foot into my mouth despite the Scamp that I am. Whew running out of Oxygen and my head is feeling Miti-lite like I am in a Cloud. So I will stop while I am ahead.

I like the rabbit trails this takes when this subject comes up.

Glad creativity isn't required to have an egg.

I get irritated with thread trolls who bash people for spelling and/or grammar. To me it's bullying. Proper or not we all say things kinda different. It honestly makes me feel bad for the person that spelled or said something wrong when they get corrected by a perfectionist. Obviously we all can read or write or we wouldn't even be on here. I have my share of 'duh' on here....i'm even learning the fiberglassrv lingo. I kid you not...it took me reading an entire thread to realize that TV was tow vehicle and not a fancy flat screen in the corner of the rig

i'll get there one day

Nope...i didn't proof this

I agree with you Kim, Donna, and several others. I won't apologize for my bad spelling or my grammar. I've seen it on my quilting boards where people knock everybody else. A few had hurt feelings and left the site because of it. There is no excuse for being a bully. If you don't like someone's post... Just move on and get over it.

If you read the OP, I believe you will find that there is no criticism of others' spelling or grammar.
Often, the spell-check changes words and sometimes makes a sentence incomprehensible. It is a simple check to proofread your post to make sure it says what you intend it to say.

....thread got off track.

Noooo i didn't mean to imply anyone here was critisizing if i did. It was totally just my opinion. In fact when i made my intro in the intro thread i put something like 'ignore my mistakes i'm not duh i'm just in a hurry or using an iphone or ipad'.

I try to proof just to make sure it makes sense. AND funny as it sounds i also proof sometimes to make sure i don't say something rude to someone. I frequent and am a member of a weight loss site...OMG those people are brutal bullies. I know they run people off.

I try to re-read all my posts and make correction as i go.

That said English is my second language so i might be adapting french words to english here and there...i'm also a bit dislexic so letters get mixed up when i type on a keyboard, everything is there but not in the right order...
Combine that with the ipad keyboard giving me troubles, its a constant struggle for me.

My goal is to make a sentence that is understandable without obvious mistakes like double or reversed letters and such. It is also the rule we follow on a other forum where I am a Moderator.

my friends on faceboook makes fun of me saying my ipad is missing letters!

When I originally posed the question I wasn't being critical. Sometimes I proofread mine and sometimes I don't. Upon certain occasions when I proofread my posts I find that I haven't come close to saying what I wanted to say. Makes me wonder what I might have said in posts that I haven't proofread. I've had more than a few duh moments. I've read some of those from others too. We all do/say stupid things at one time or another. I may not be the brightest bulb in the lamp but I'm bright enough that my parents called me son.
