    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.


    oh, don't get me wrong, i know. i was more addressing the proliferation of the "professional" attitude toward the uneducated. personally, i've learned more from folks without college degrees than those with.

        ...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.


        Big difference in simple/basic spelling & grammar rules and a technical skill.
        Or between something everyone learns in grade school and something one would need speciality training for.
        Or between something that's necessary for MOST jobs versus something that's required for few.

        Just because spelling/grammar might not come easy or be second nature doesn't make it any less sad that adults far and wide belittle its importance, but if you want to continue comparing it to something that it's nothing like, be my guest.


        +1 million hypocrite points for calling my post/whatever childish...and then crowing about how you like pushing buttons, BTW.

          Let's stay on track here:
          We're not talking about any perceived or actual differences between those who have college degrees and those who don't.
          Are we?

          I thought the discussion was about people who don't bother paying attention to what was taught in Miss Tessmacher's Grade 5 English classes.
          Wasn't it?

          Or are we now just rolling up to say ANY formal education is too much education?
          Wow, what happened to 'knowledge is power"?

          Ok, fine. I'll jump out of this one and take my BA in liberal arts with me.


          Still hold to my first post, though: best trick for spelling challenges is to actually have the basic knowledge and understanding in the first place.

            Whats simple to you may not be simple to others. I was rebuilding car engines in the 7th grade while most of my friends were playing with star wars fugures. I dont think of spelling as a saving grace or a thing to get in a tizzy about. If it were my resume....fine. Internet forum...please. Many adults can not read or write, even in todays world. And to think of them as any less of a human being is crazy. People that throw cigarette butts out theyre car windows drives me crazy......but I dont dwell on it. Im no hypocrite, and I appreciated your first post, although all I got out of it was the tone that everyone on any forum that cant spell must not have gone to grade school. I dunno??? How do you want people to take a short insulting post like that. To me it was insulting, and degrades anyone that didnt have that choice. And if they did go, not everyone learns the same values and teachings as yourself in another part of the world. so why dwell on it.

            And I appreciate twosticks for trying to help......I have a spellcheck at the top right of my screen, but it says I need to download something. Everytime I do something like that I get a virus...go figure.

                    Didn't mean to start anything. I am using Firefox. I just can't find where to start the spell check. Usually I'm just looking one or two words so opening another tab works for me most times. I'm not perfect and I just thought it might help someone.

                    I don't think spelling really tells if a person is smart or not. I think it does affect how others see you and can make it harder to communicate if your spelling is really bad. I did okay in grade school and was an average student in high school. I used to spell badly and make many grammar mistakes. I went back to school at 24 and found that I did much better then because I applied myself more. Plus it also helped that I relearned many of the rules that I had forgotten as I grew up. But I was still the same person deep down.

                    There are a few (not all) in college and education settings that collect degrees and seem to act like those who don't are a little below them. They can be stoic or act reserved. There are many of their peers that don't act that way though.

                    Usually I describe this group to others as a family where most get along and help each other out with some ribbing here and there and honest feedback. It would disappoint me to see a big riff start over something stupid like spelling. Life is too short as we've seen in many recent posts.

                      my firefox just underlines misspelled words, then you can right-click on them for suggestions. you can also right-click on any text and select "check spelling" to turn it on, if i'm not mistaken.

                        we all make typo mistakes when posting or texting...i have no problem with that in an informal setting.

                        i still get PO'd when i see some idiot calling someone else a "looser"!!!

                        please learn the difference between lose/loose, they're/their/there, your/you're.

                        and the same for morons who post something like "i must of lost them". it's not "must of"...it's "must've", which is basically a bastardization of a contraction of must and have.

                        and don't forget people who can't have a decent conversation without a dozen "likes" and "you knows" peppered throughout.
