I've noticed that I've been making a lot of typo's lately. Could be that I'm always rushing to type in a post, or that I'm sick & tired of this job I'm in here...

... the use of an apostrophe to indicate a plural form being an example?

Sorry, thought I would come in with something pedantic in support of your mission. Typos don't bother me that much. It does seem nice though when people care enough to reread their prepared post before clicking the Submit or Post Reply buttons.

I know what you mean. just lately , over the last few weeks I keep typing and as nad and have as hvae . I usually do a spell check on my posts in word though.
I'm getting all the right letters in there but it's like my fingers are trying to type so fast that sometimes one will get ahead of the other.

Ok. Not to sound like I'm trying to form a conspiracy theory, but....I have noticed that I am making more and more mistakes typing over the last 3 or 4 months.
(I just counted 6 and corrected them when writing the above sentences!!!!)
What's the deal? I know it's not fatigue. Do you all remember the article a few months back about some scientists discovered that the spelling of wrods

But I think that the point is that we are people that weren't making typos before but for some reason we seem to have lost full control over our fingers.
It does seem strange that it's been since the article that darklanser mentioned that I seem to be making more mistakes. I sometimes play a game called Isketch which is a kind of online pictionary. I have to be able to type really quickly to be the first to guess the word and get my points, and I've noticed that I've had the same problem on there .

That was exactly my point pantha...thanks !! I didn't use to make as many typos. It's as if my brain and my fingers are not on the same wavelength. I am great at spelling and grammar, just not in the last 3-4 months. I was really starting to think I was developing dyslexia.
I looked into it a few months back. Now that I hear others that it's happening to..I don't feel as bad.

and do you mean by your comment? I was half joking when I mentioned conspiracy.

Don't be a d c k.

Btw....did you notice that the letters c and k if typed next to each other are considered vulgar and are censored by ATS/BTS???

No lysergic...I mean just the two letters next to each other. It's also bizarre that only every other one was censored !!

actually now that I've talked about my typo problem it seems to have cured it's self at least for now anyway. I've probably jinxed myself now though.

Yep, "it's self" should be "itself"

OMG I knew I spoke to soon. I should have touched wood as I said it then I would have been alright.

Well, technically, you have two separate sentences there and neither begin with a capital letter.

("is" should be "Is" and "spell" should be "Spell")
