    I realize that commenting on this will probably

    make me appear to be a snob, but incorrect spelling and grammar irks me. I have one of those brains that sees the errors easily. Perhaps I should be an editor. It seems to me that people should remember that anytime they post something on Experience Project they are publishing...

    Seriously...

    How much extra time would it take to proofread things? Two minutes? One really can have spellcheck on his or her computer, and why ignore it? What do you have to lose? Would you really be doing yourself any harm by making yourself a bit easier to understand?

    That's a nice way to put it.
