    Funny it's beginning to look like the one uppers are trying to gain the high ground, IMO this objective will change hands countless times. The young girl scored a point against a adult, most kids do from time to time, non the less from what I see it is a shame how low we will go and say to hell with what really matters. Anyone ever wonder why nothing gets done and why the true talent out there has no wish to run for any political office, can't say that I blame them.

    So what...typos and simple mispells arent important on a public forum...maybe only to those that think to much of themselves

    Some of us are educated. I didn't go to college, but I've been reading heavily since I was eight. Typos and spelling errors cause my brain to trip. When people botch simple words or phrases that have been around a few hundred years simply because a) they have a rough idea, but don't actually know, and/or b) spell check is not their friend, then yeah. Sometimes I'll comment.

    When a topic thread gets hyjacked by claims of misspellings etc. (I find) it's usually a sign that they got nothing & are just trolling. Also misspellings can occur from a multiple of reasons... IE fat fingers, disabilties, passionate about topic, whatever.

    I agree its absolutely absurd to rail on spelling and typographical errors on a public forum and it says something about the people that belittle others because of it.

    A mistake is a mistake. Repeated mistakes in a short space of time suggest something else. They don't necessarily say anything very much about someone's intelligence, but say quite a lot about how much care and thought they put into what they write. If someone can't be bothered to read back what they write before posting, that says to me they neither believe very strongly in what they are writing, nor respect very much the people they expect to read their thoughts. A post strewn with basic errors of language is much harder to understand than one written correctly.

    Of course, sometimes repeated mistakes of very basic grammar and spelling does suggest a lack of education. Some people might accord that more importance than others might.

    P.S. You do know the difference between 'to' and 'too', don't you?
