by spell check i meant the red lines underneath when u type into the little box here on WI. it's very important cuz i type so fast that letters get mixed up and i don't notice without it.

Everytime you type you should think about what your point is and ratty your point is silly because you use chat-speak which is not proper grammar and is hard to read. I'm an adult I don't use chat-speak in the real world it's frowned upon. So if you want to change how people type change your bad behavior first.

hey htat's very cool! u shud...

u get the idea. so plz, help make WI a better, easier place! spell check!
I bolded the grammar/spelling errors.... I know what you are trying to say, but if you make a thread complaining about "text-speak", and even use it in the thread, then don't mention the issue at all.

You will find that in the adult world if you email your professor or anyone and you use chat-speak it is highly frowned upon and they can and will comment on it. I'm in college and you have to get used to typing correctly kids now think that chat-speak is a valid easy way to type and it's not. My professor told us if we use chat-speak he won't respond to our emails. Also using correct grammar and captalizing your first letter in a sentence would be nice. I couldn't even read your rude advice given to us users. So don't try to be smart and tell someone how to type when you yourself can't type well at all and need to learn to use proper grammar! It's rude no matter how nice a way you frame your topic. Please in the future type better yourself before telling others they make it hard for you to read their topics. I think a little less hypocrisy on your side would serve you well!

I often mess up on the word that. I do spell it like ''htat'' a lot, unfortunately.

Here's a slight change of topic. One of my pet peeves is when people use yellow, light green, or other light colors that are very hard to read. I wish everyone would use legible colors to post.

As I was reading through this post, I was thinking the same thing.

I sometimes have trouble reading some fonts and colors in the posts. I wouldn't call it a "peeve" of mine... just a little hard to read. My husband is color blind... I'll have to ask him to try to read some of the colors sometime to see how he perceives them.

In regards to the original post -- I can get the gist of what the writer is saying no matter how it is spelled. Up until now, I had not given it much thought, so I guess misspelled words and abbreviations do not bother me. As long as I understand their thought, I read it, if not, I pass it up.

Thanks for starting this thread... It's really interesting to read all the different opinions.
