Honestly this a place of fun, not somewhere to be concerned if you make an innocent mistake and misspell a word!
Personally I think those who are proponents of using spellcheck would do best to check their own posts for spelling errors before advising others. I think they'd be surprised that their own spelling isn't as perfect as they'd like to think.
People who live in glass houses...

Remember you're dealing with children more often than not, and that includes anyone under 18 (sorry; but it does) and the idea of worrying about your spelling when your amongst friends just isn't as important as what they want to share with those friends.

So again, if someone ELSE misspelling words is the biggest thing you have to be concerned about, thank the Good Lord that your life is so wonderful!

Now you can't even have a conversation with most kids. What's up ? To think ...the computer was supposed to help with that ! ???
As a kid I find this VERY hurtful. You shouldn't judge ALL kids for what some do. I use LOL sometimes to make sure people know it's a joke, and MAYBE BRB. I know adults whose posts are WAY harder to read than mine. I think you need to stop blaming kids for something EVERYONE does.

I think that she is right, but slightly harsh. Abrevations are hard for me as a kid to read, and your post is full of them.

There have been lots of great points brought up. I think the most important is that there are a lot of different ages of people that post on here and you have to give people a break.

I also wanted to point out that we do address text speak in our Forum Rules. You all should read through them if you have a moment:

And finally, I wanted to post this. Yes, I do believe we should strive for a post free of spelling errors (as much as possible) but I thought we all needed a laugh.

Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, olny taht the frist and lsat ltteres are at the rghit pcleas. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by ilstef, but the wrod as a wlohe.
