Well I guess I AM a spelling nazi. In fact I've had posts removed as being 'off topic' for pointing out the errors in my response. But it does drive
me crazy and imo it affects the credibility of the post/poster.
I once took a red line through an article written by the boss for the company magazine and as punishment, they made me proof reader!
Maybe it's because I am from an older generation and wasn't brought up on text speak. I find the most common errors are their/there, hole/whole,
bear/bare - and spelling sense as sence. Then we have the UK peeps who spell things like driving licence as license - the American way.
Edit: On forums topics to do with spelling, some bright spark inevitably presents a paragraph of gibberish as evidence you can still get the meaning -
therefore spelling is irrelevant. Wrong...
