You sir, have gone a step too far! The meeting place will be Kiribati Island, at dawn and as gentlemen we shall raise our flags with pride and have a thong slap off. That's Aussie thongs, otherwise things might get confusing and messy.

You better bring the rest of the girls, cause I smell a rumble. Excuse me while I rally the troops.

Fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR PEANUT BUTTER!

I do now believe it is my turn....

Well played old man, well played.
I'm off to remove some stubborn stains from my, errr thongs.
But I shall do it while eating vegemite on toast, you are welcome to your peanut butter, which isn't butter, its squashed nuts. Who wants to eat squashed nuts???

(at OP, see?? Even though I have struck war with a man who stabbed at the heart of our nations right to eat salty black goo, we are able to end it with humble acceptance that we are all more or less the same, some spelling errors should not bring you down, join the Vegemite league, hazaa!)

Actually to pose a question to you. If there's a bomb attached to your girl's neck. And there's instructions as to how to dis-arm the bomb. Are you gonna let her blow if there's some miss-spelled words or bad grammer?

I would expect not. So , if the info is there, and you can get a grasp of it even with a miss-spelled word or two what's the worry? Just saying. Your even guilty of it in your opening post...

This thread is extremely relevant to ATS...may I also suggest the following software title:

Now, I must warn you this program does takes some time to train, I am still having my issues with it. I find myself simultaneously in 2-3 conversations at a time and I try my best to keep errors down when I am in a hurry(and that is all of the time). I have rather large hands and a rather sensitive keyboard. I never figured ATS of all forums to demand 100% accuracy in spelling and I only take my time typing when I am programming code for redundancy is important when you are avoiding syntax errors.

I will make fun of someone who comes on ATS without the basic knowledge of correct spelling and correct English grammar. I have done this in the past in hopes that the person(s) would learn to recognize their mistakes, but I have never thought to discredit them due to functional illiteracy.

As for my personal credibility?

I.Q.= 206 (State tested & MENSA confirmed)
Education: Masters of Science Electronic & Computer Engineering earned from CWRU *(not typing)
Business Owner

So you better get it right!

btw... I have noticed that sometimes(actually a lot as of late) here on ATS I would have proofread my post before submission only later on to find out that there was spelling error(s). Now, I am not inferring that ATS's script editor is at fault but something is screwing around with the submissions.

The ATS staff can also make alterations to your post and if you are not favored by them like I am not(shrugs shoulders) then attempting to chop at one's credibility via submissions revision is the perfect # with you weapon. I am still here ATS 13 years and going strong!

So, if I make a mistake so be it. At my age and station in life I can literally afford to make the occasional mistake or two. My resume and professional references speaks for it is not like ATS is paying anyone for perfect submissions....actually it is the other way around... I have found out that struggling mind blocked Hollywood & TV producers, authors steal content from ATS...but that is another story for another day.

When my girl sends me a text saying "I lov u" should I whine about it and make a big stink?

thats my point, you should whine about it, when the information is wrong, saying, in reality, she does not love you.

As a man who has fought many emotional battles, I know that a fight with my girl over the spelling of a message is futile. I will pass my knowledge on to you, get over it.

truth right there! and agree! god help any man that pisses another woman off LoL

Im sorry (actually, Im not), but as a former member of the spelling police I can say that, in hindsight, unless a persons post is for the most part completely illegible, no one has any business pointing it out.

As for credibility, it says more about the person who's pointing the mistake out. If you have enough knowledge to debate a topic, then attacking a persons spelling is the very LAST angle you're going to come from.
The guise of 'Im just a concerned member of the ATS community' is fairly crap one also. If someone was genuinely bothered about that person, and the whole of ATS being dragged down into the gutter by spelling and grammar mistakes, then they would not use it to form part of their argument about why that other persons point is invalid.
Why? Because at the end of the day, there's a million good reasons why someone's spelling is not perfect... Dyslexia, the battle that is typing a post out on an iphone, being in a rush for whatever reason.. there's loads. The dyslexia one alone is more than enough reason to not just attack a persons spelling without first knowing all the facts.
