  • OT: Posting and Spelling Trick I use

    Race's post got me thinking about this. Many times when I'm posting on here or typing an e-mail, I will not know how to spell a word. Most browsers now have tabs where you can look up two things at once on the web. So I will click open a new tab or window, go to my search engine (Yahoo, Google, etc) on the new page and start typing in the word I'm looking for. Many times, that word will show up in the "instant find" list that pops up. Sometimes I have to click on the "did you mean?" words or the word I think it is since many now show up as one word definitions on the web now. When I double click on that word, I can then click back on the first tab or page (where I'm writing) and the correct way to spell the word I'm having trouble with is correctly spelled in the header of the second open tab or page that I can see as I'm typing on the first page. I can then search up new words on the second tab or exit the second tab when I want. Just thought it might be an idea for others?? Hope it helps!

    I simply type close to the word, hold down my mouse key and my control key (Mac) and the correct spelling is usually there... My problem is sometimes I post too fast and don't look at the entire message...

                  Not perfect.
                  But it is a pet peeve of mine, so since I am apparently one of a select few who learnt sumthing in skool what stuk with them all theez yeers, I felt like responding.

                  I'm not talking about words that would be difficult to spell for most people with an education, mind you: there's clearly a high volume of people posting online, and in this forum who struggle with the most basic items, however: you're vs. your; when NOT to use an apostrophe before an 's' (Hint: an apostrophe doesn't have anything to do with plurality), etc.

                  These are the most basic items, yet day in and day out, they get butchered.
                  Maybe many don't care about such things.
                  I think that's sad.

                    lol...I love gettin you started. haha...................your having a pet peeve about someones spelling is like me having one against someone for not being able set up a twin turbo on an eco-boost. Bottom line its a little childish........but I like pushing the button when I know whats gonna come next. Truth is the only time anyone should ever look down on someone is if your lending them a hand to help them off the ground.

                      i was just speaking of this to someone recently. my parents (and step mom) were teachers. when my mom had kids, she quit teaching. she then began waitressing. she did until she died. i couldn't understand until the last few years of her life why she never taught again. she said it was the people. she explained that she would rather be around the kind, uneducated people than the educated snobs. i tend to agree.

                        You may need to explain this to me. I have a hard time drawing a correlation between:

                        educated = snob
                        noneducated = kind

                          the noneds didn't try to act like something they weren't.
                          the educated teachers truly looked down on uneducated folks.

                              There are also educated people that truly care about helping someone learn, as opposed to those that just try to impress you with their "wisdom", by shoving it down your throat every chance they get. Big difference.
