    I would have suggested "... editing is warranted".

    However, as I look at my screen, I don't see the ability to employ a "spell- checker". As my Grandma always said - you only get one chance at a first impression...

    If your granny had read PTS's semi-coherent rant from a week ago today, she would have said he made one heck of an impression. Notwithstanding the irony of a misspelled word in a note suggesting the use of spellcheckers, today's offering from PTS is at least lucid.

    Who cares about the spelling. So what! Most of us are intelligent enough to recognize that there was an error and we can correct it in our own minds. Do we have to pretend that we are perfect so we can chastize the other guy. Personally God did not make me a perfect human being and I don't think any of us on this site are perfect. I feel sorry for some of you guys that have to belittle someone else to boost your own ego. Not everyone in the world has to live up to your expectations. Now you can have some fun counting my mistakes. Mike

    I confess to being to fast to push the submit button without checking for spelling and gramner errors.

    Mike,

    I'm really sorry that "You" are not perfect, like most of us that are.

    There is a great spell checker available for forum entries. The Website URL is above. The download is free but a contribution is appreciated.

    Iespell puts a neat little icon right on the menu bar. Click it or click "Tools" and choose iespell and a box will appear in an unfortunate position on the screen (it can be dragged out of the way) with a misspelled word with alternate spelling choices listed below. Choose the one that seems appropriate and the word that was misspelled is magically corrected.

    Wasn't there a bill in the House that was defeated, which would have made the use of dangling gerunds (only one "r" in that word, I just learned) a capital offense?
