Yeah. I prefer talking to people who bother spelling out a few simple words like "you" and "to" and not confusing "to" with "too" or even "two.

I think it's important! I love spelling and grammar! it's fun and it makes you look smart. I mean it's ok to use short turms and say U for YOU and CUZ for BECAUSE.

^Agreed, I'm a bit of a hypocrite for saying this since I missed 'sentance', but typos shouldn't even be an issue with the edit feature. They're understandable mistakes, but review what you said.

Especially if it's a rant, I've been known to spell the easiest of words and post just because I was fuming at the time.

And, to save my ego, I swear to god I can spell sentence!

What he said made perfect sense. Now, you didn't really post your opinion on spelling, so let's assume you are pro IQ. If you believe spelling is for the betterment of the english language (or, any language really) and will in turn give people their respect or approval (yeah, try getting into college with 'tlak') then grammer must also be included. If I sent my letter of intent in as one run on sentace spelled perfectly, they would still toss my application immediatly.



Well thought out, but you spelt sentance wrong.


You both spelled it wrong: sentence, not sentance. Spelled not spelt.




Well there you go, I even make mistakes, but my brain is old and moldy - your a young pup. (I knew I shouldn't have posted on this topic that I would get nailed - I blame spellcheck.... )

^hey, that was posted before the quote, and I was relying on MidnightTide ^.^

Once again, firm believer in accurate spelling, not so much of a follower. Haha, I can't even blame dyslexia on that one. XD

^Don't get too comfortable with it. I'm not even talking about upsetting and confusing people on forums or casual aim chats. I did my letter of intent via email, and that determines my future.

I also had to talk with administration via the internet since I am in PA and they are in GA.

All of that is a little bigger than small talk on CR, and if you get to caught up with your 1337 writing on the internet, it will make its way into your life as a habit when things become important.

There were several people in my english class who failed due to shorthand. Don't let that be you! (depending on where you live, it's actually made it's way into some cultures as acceptable *smacks face*)
