    I hate it when people criticize others for bad spelling, so I'm glad a disabled person spoke up. The following is my original post, which somehow incurred an error.

    I hate it when people nit pick about spelling. Not everyone is a good speller, and even if they are, they may not type well, or even have good grammar. I could really get into a rant about that but this isn't the place. My spelling and typing are fairly good, though sometimes I goof, too. Disabled people can't always type well, so I'm glad someone spoke up about that. Now that person might get self conscious and afraid to post. Geesh. I have some impairments, too, and know all too well about that.

    Misspelling in forums and other text media used to bother me, but I decided that it's not as important in informal situations, but if someone was sharing a letter they plan to send, especially in a business situation, including writing to complain about stuff to lawmakers, then I'll correct them.

    By now I'm sure someone's gonna say something about spellcheckers, which are a good tool, but they don't always have the word I need, so I do my best to figure it out, sometimes I'll look it up someplace if it's that important to me.

    There are worse things people can complain about, but please remember, no matter what someone criticizes someone for, they don't know the entire situation, often, they don't even know the person. I've been around awhile and have seen a lot of why people are shy and fearful, often for trivial reasons.

    What really bugs me is when people's subject lines are so vague and unspecific.

    And about the Maverick thing, I can see where someone could make that mistake if they're thinking in terms of grammar. If anyone saw how I handled that, it's a technique I use often, that's tactful, and could point out the error without causing hurt.
    Sincerely, Quietone

    So, you're saying that this is a bothersome?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I know, right?

    EDIT: What's with tacking that "right?" on at the end of stuff.

    "I think Apple hit it out of the ballpark with iOS 8."

    "I know, right?"

    "Why are you asking me whether you know something?"

    Never judge a man, untill you have walked a mile in his shoes...
    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.

    ..bothers me too, but I stopped correcting people a long time ago. What's worse is just usage. Words have meanings, but often not the one the writer intended.

    So you misunderstood what you thought I meant when I think I meant something else entirely?

    So after all this I am going out to find myself. So if I get back before I return, make sure I don't leave please!

    So yes I did Dennis!
