Doesn't lack of correct grammar bother you?

... Stepping into the fire here...

Personally, I hate having to type in a game scenario... A) My typing is hunt-n-peck. B) My spelink bites (& gramer 2). 3) I usually lose a sub or something whilst distracted. (and yes, the A, B, 3, bit is intentional, amongst other… glitches :) )

As for in a forum, I use spell-check (and cross my fingers). Of course, having a mild learning disability and the lack of compensative teaching while growing up didn't help. Dyslexics of the world UNTIE!! :)

Where <(I never know if I use the right variation here) my distant childhood experience helps is in an sense of empathy for others, and a certain lack of judgment on any spelling or grammar issues I recognize (in a forum, not on a resume ;))… after all, they may be slightly challenged on those skills, like me, but still very intelligent; Intelligence and education are not the same... I have briefly employed some rather dumb educated people.

BTW... I am just not online chat savvy enough to understand all the abbreviations... but in a game scenario I approve of them since I can get back to the game in time to see my sub sink, instead of wondering were it went :?

I really hope that was a typo of unite. Otherwise, you're probably into Perl :D

That was intended to be humorous re poor language/grammar. However, I changed it just for you.

Unless you make a typo like: The Untied States of America.

Actually, I think that's quite good. You have to know that my nickname is one I came up with when I was 10 years old. Now, almost 5 years later, people from school have pointed out to me it looks a bit childish. I don't know about you guys, but I think it's funny, and ideed, you have a lot of possibilities for anagrams with that much letters in a nick.
