MOST HELPFUL POSTS

Most of my typing errors are due to holding or nursing the baby while typing, or being incredibly tired after a night shift. I loathe those threads, and generally avoid them.

LOL Teresa. That cracks me up! I hate text speak. I especially hate it when the word isn't even quicker to write, like when they write 'kewl' instead of 'cool'.

That's awesome Teresa, you're after my heart ♥ I occasionally misspell words, but blatant purposeful ignorance just burns me up

LOL,
There are too many posts that I don't/can't read beyond the first two lines. The lack of any sort of grammar and/or punctuation is awful.
When people start spelling like they're a couple of teenage boys talking on the corner it drives me nuts.
Some of my sons friends will send me fb messages or chats that go like this "hi t idk wut u sed 2 me lst ngt but im not gonna tell dev how i fel now ill tel him ltr aft 8. kk ttyl" or other such random weirdness. I usually reply with "sorry can you put that into old people English, you know, the kind with vowels and stuff. Humour me I'm old"

I agree, Sharon - there's typos or deliberately shortened words and then there are signs for the stupid people!

Typing errors WE GET. But pure idiocy shines through.

When I'm typing on my phone - ugh, its one of the largest phones out there but, lol, the screen is small and the print just scrolls off, I don't always catch my errors. Especially when I'm laying in bed getting ready to fall asleep!

Typos we forgive, overlook! But stupidity, lol, we openly mock.

HAHAHA!!!!!!...this is the only place i can relax..half of the time when i am typing on here i am in weird positions or rushing so i will have some typing errors. I then go in and edit like crazy so noone thinks i can't spell....lol. Good for you Teresa..lol... Sometimes i can't answer because i haven't the slightest clue what you are asking.

I cannot pretend to always spell properly or use correct grammar 100% of the time but I make an effort. Unfortunately some of the posts on COM are' RITEN LiK Tis" and it drives me bonkers. Some posts are so hard to read that I don't even bother reading through.

Yessss....feel the power of the Snark Side, Teresa. Let your contempt for idiocy flow through you.

Lols...it really annoys me when people on here can't spell, use incorrect grammar - my favourite is mixing there and their, considering I learnt the difference when I was around 9 year olds! Also the people who start every word with a capital Letter Like This....
