Its a very common thing seen in forums, but its oh so true.
Read the next passage through. It looks weird but you’ll be able to read it at normal reading speed.




I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdgnieg The
phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde
Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer inwaht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the
olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit
pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a
porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by
istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig huh? yaeh and I awlyas thought
slpeling was ipmorantt!





I for one am guilty of not using my spell checker and to be honest, while I like things to be right I just do not feel like having to wait for a spell checker to do the job as it can take a while to do it especially if you have a slow connection for the internet like I do. But as long as folks get the point, thats what counts. I know that your posting and the way you write somehting reflects or is supposed to reflect a persons traits (neat, sloppy, careless etc) but it means nothing to me.....
One thing I really hate though is in some forums when yur in a heated argument, and thn someone brings up your spelling or use of words as a last ditch attempt to dissagree........So I guess what the above paragraph interprets to be is the mind gets into a state it automatically sorts things out and letters inbetween do not amount to a hill of beans. I found this interesting, just what a person can read or write and still be totally understandable. In some ways its kind of unique on how things look and sound and still be understood.

My browser, Safari (Mac OSX), has a built-in spell checker. I use it all the time but still miss things once in a while. They're, there, stuff like that. I do go back and edit my post if I see something wrong. Goes back to my editing Ham Radio manuals days, I guess.

I can read through bad spelling with no problems. Its the abbreviated words that I hate trying to de-cypher. No offence to Big Allis
but I usually skip over his posts rather than trying to figure out what he is saying in his abbreviated words.

What I frequently do instead of using the spellchecker is to copy and paste what I wrote into Microsoft Word and let it check the spelling. Many times this is a faster way to check spelling. Only problem is it accepts "spellchecker" as one or two separate words while the SpelChek software says "Spell-checker"so what's a person to do!!:homereat:

Wow, that's interesting Chipmaker. I read through it just fine.

I use the spell check in Safari (Mac OSX) like Greg does. It is systemwide in the OS. Just right-click on the red, underlined word.

The most likely correction is at the top of the list. <img src=http://www.homepage.mac.com/userosx/.Pictures/Pic5.jpg>
Click that word and your done. Life is easy when you use a Mac. :peace:

I proofread my stuff, but it is always grammar and punctuation stuff that I miss. I don't catch it until after I hit "submit". Don't know why I worry about stuff like that, I guess maybe because my mom was an English teacher. I have to leave my "aints" at home when I go visit her. :D

I have the same problem as another member mentioned once. The spell checker does not seem to know what I am thinking and trying to say. :lmao:
