Long time members know how I feel about spelling and grammar. I absolutely can't stand to see the way some people butcher the English language.
Since the worst offenders are apparently too lazy to break out a dictionary, I have integrated the services of Spellchecker.net into the forum. That means instead of clicking that little submit button, you should click the spell check button instead. Through the miracle of Internet technology, a window will pop up and catch all of your mistakes. Heck, you can even click the grammar or thesaurus tabs and make use of those.
Some people have asked where their posts go, and I flat out tell them I delete them. Lack of spelling, grammar, capitalization and spaces drives me absolutely crazy. As I've said before, I refuse to let the most incredible communication medium in history be reduced to what a member recently called the "CB of the 90's."
Now you don't have an excuse! ;)

Thanks for the spell checker Jeff, sometimes I don't know how to spell words and I don't know what to do. If I should not make the post or make a buffon of myself. But now I have a perpetual solution to my problem.
coastergenius, in attempting to sound intelligent, you just made yourself sound like a little kid who just got ahold of daddy's thesaurus. Hopefully this was the intended effect. It's cute when a 7 year old does it..
Oh yeah, and if you're going to advertise intelligence you might want to use the proper "it's" in your sentences.
Sorry, Jeff, I don't know what's come over me today. I'm in a very antagonistic mood.
For your Information I know the precise meaning of all of the words. I just never bore the "genius" part of the name until now. I expect to conduct my intellect in my conversations from now on. ------------- What is life without geniuses?
