im so sorry that your feelings were hurt. to me spelling and grammer are not that important here on WI. you are doing the best you can and i think you are doing an awesome job. please dont let this thread keep your from posting because you think people will judge you on grammer and such because thats just NOT the case. like i said before some poeple use english as a second language and dont know the proper spelling or grammer. you just keep up the good work you are doing .


ohhh i can understand why your mom is happy that you are posting for yourself and she doesnt have to do it for you anymore. it means you are learning and growing

I think this is a bit petty and knit picky. There are children on here barely old enough to read. There are grown adults here with learning disabilities, and as we have seen in this thread, there are deaf people who don't communicate the same way hearing people do. The majority of posts here are written to be completely legible, even with a few minor typos. I don't think this post was warranted. Honestly, I think if WI felt they needed the Grammar Police, they would have a mod for that as well.

My intent was only to share my opinion. I hope I haven't offended anyone. This site is about fun, and if we have to think about every little error we might make it will be less fun for some. Please, let's keep WI the way it was intended.

i DISagree 100%. =) Its just a simple typo. If you know what they mean, is no biggie. but if u spell toast like sotats then we have a problem. Mods do them too. its fine. i txt speak all the time. well, most of of the time. as long as ppl can read it, i see no problem. So i disagree.

katmanndo, well said

Okay, I was reading this thread and then got to a point where I just scrolled to the bottom to reply. I think some people are taking this to an extreme when it was put out here as a "reminder request" from someone who was voicing their own opinion. I do not believe that there was any finger pointing going on to people who have a disability or English isn't their first language or is too young to know any better. We all have opinions and they deserve to be heard whether others agree with them or not. There have been a lot of good points throughout this thread but there have also been some not so nice things too.

So I say at this point we should agree to disagree with others but to try & do the best that we can so that others can read & understand the threads more easily, I do fully agree though on the text talk – to me that is just too hard to comprehend!!!!

This is my 2 cents worth!!! Have a great day everyone & don’t sweat the small stuff!!!!

The purpose of this thread was to remind us all to use spellcheck, check for typos, etc., so we don't end up having people think we're little kids (and so what if they are little kids? It's important to learn proper spelling from a young age. )

"Other- CHOCOLATE!!!! M&Ms are the best-est. "

"Uh, lemme think... I had some "Life" cinnamon cereal, and some mocha-cappuccino coffee. "


these are your posts, with quite improper spelling, so maybe you should try not to be so critical on a site that is meant for fun.

p.s. not trying to be mean or anything just makiing a point

Text talk can get annoying. But for me, if I can understand what they are saying, then I'm fine with it
