    I can read it, almost as fast as if they were spelled correctly, but I notice every word and it would be very annoying to have to read for more than a paragraph or so. I've never been a spelling nazi, everyone makes mistakes, I find it far more annoying when people don't even make an effort and do things like...

    r u 4 rel?

    I can't even bring myself to do that when I'm forced to use text messaging.

    Most of us guys had pleanty of readin writing and rithmatic in school, we just never did learn to type worth a darned and when we type hunt n peck style it is often easy to get the printed words wrong. then there are some of us that get in too big a hurry or are just plain dislectic and get the letters all down but just not in the right order. Hey MIA whats yours, hurry or that other thing??

    I once asked a young receptionist how many words a minute she could type.

    She told me she was, "Just a hunt n pecker."

    I told her her search was over:)

    Spelling, the best you are able, is a point of accuracy and order that we should try to maintain. It's just common sense - not a police action.

    BB,

    Try applying for a job in writing. If you have grammar or spelling errors, I seriously doubt if your application will get past the garbage can.
    Rightfully or wrongfully, Personnel will just think there are better applicants out there; especially in this job market!

    I agree with chichay but we are not applying for a job on this site---Just trying to get the msg.out.---I am up in yrs and can't spell for nothing but became very well off without being able to spell---I know a-lot of people who can spell but are derelicts---I was told once that John F Kennedy couldn't spell either---Did You ever see some of the Dr's hand writing---Don't make much difference of the spelling---They don't have time to write and worry about spelling---just get the msg. out---gL---sjb
