I got an email recently that I thought was pretty interesting.

This only works for shorter words, though, and it does slow down reading speed a bit.



Seriously, though, I can be a bit of a grammar nazi at times. It's not because there's some inherent virtue in proper spelling and grammar, just that when making some arguments it behooves you to present your best face. If you're attending a job interview it's better to show up in a nice shirt and tie rather than ripped jeans and a curry-stained t-shirt, similarly when making the case for many of the theories here it's better to come off as polished and coherent.

I know, I know
I too find it interesting when people shout their mouth off about how ignorrant someone else's posts are, when they are guilty of multiple spelling errors.
