Red face Pet Peeve

One of my pet peeves as the year ends on RCU is the number of people who do not seem to realize that there is a "SPELL CHECKER" for these forum posts.
Please! Those little red squiggles indicate a misspelled word. Just right click on the word and select the word your trying for! Some of the attempted spellings are hilarious, not posting a smart ass answer is getting harder and harder.

Not to mention to be proud of yourself and your language. English is a second language for me, and I feel embarrassed for the people that do not dominate even their first language.

You couldn't read some of my posts without the spell checker.
It ain't cause I can't spell, I can't type!
Same problem it work, and I'd reprimand someone for not correcting there spelling there.

Happy Holidays,

WOW! All the things to get irritated about on a world wide forum, spelling is it?
My pet peeve is the terminology being used for build and or assembly.
But I will say "Thanks" I did not know that about the right click and have already used it on this post.
Now if I were only smart enough to not need it.

How many of you caught the misspelled word in the OP's post?

Uh, Larry...

  1. Use of quotes, caps and colour is unnecessary on the words "spell checker".
  2. The second sentence reads "...select the word your trying for", but should read "select the word you're trying for"
  3. After the word "hilarious" in the last sentence you should be using a period, and ellipsis or a hyphen because the words after the comma form a sentence fragment.

I agree with you in principle, but a spell checker will only help in some cases... proper use of emphasis, homonyms and grammar are up to you. To wit:

Dew knot trussed yore come pewter spell Czech er two fined awl yore miss takes.
