    PLEASE let me know if you see a misspelling. I spell check twice and then once more for good form. LOL@ me.
    Thanks for bringing this to the forefront. I really think misspellings are slippery as a wet seal, they just get by somehow.

      LMAO! Not at you, but at the slippery wet seal. You really are a female wizard with your poetic imagery and similes! 🙂 But it is true, they do manage to slip past for everyone (though I know very very very rarely in your work).

      When it’s one word in a thousand, it pretty petty pointing it out. It just irks me when it’s a common word that is continuously written incorrectly several times a stanza! Note to self…”Rize abuv it!”

    eye due naught c whut the porblim iss, dont u lik suche speeling..hahaha

    My spelling I usually catch, as it does annoy me when one talks like a two bit hillbilly, not on purpose. I tend to switch something like bare and bear, more than spell wrong..haha…although thanks to the cat chewing the keys, sometimes when I hit one it doesn’t take, leaving a misspelling..haha

  3. Innocent misspellings are one thing, phone text spelling is just irritating.

  4. Brilliant, and I know exactly what you mean… *smile* I also concur with TheMsLvh, if you see me misspell or use incorrect words, please let me know!

      Thank you CC. I really do believe pointing out the odd word, typo or swap in someone’s work is petty, unless it is some crucial word of a poem or prose, even more so if English isn’t someone’s first language. I do find however that it is those who have English as their mother tongue that commit the gravest sins.

  5. text speak is not art. it’s just not. I laughed at this.
