I Don't Read Stories With Horrible Spelling

    Just Stop It Already!

    When I see an article that has terrible spelling, I immediately lose interest. I'm not talking about when someone screws up whether and weather, or shoo and shoe, (though i do have a thing about they're, their, and there...). I'm talking about when it's so bad it's almost...

    Hell No!

    I'm a crazy anal ***** when it comes to poor spelling in an EP story. There is no reason for it. The site comes with an automatic spell check option. Use it! If there are a bunch of misspellings, I will send you a message telling you that I couldn't read it because of all of the...

    LEAVE ME OUT OF THIS!!!!!

    I likely would've had the same attitude... if the writer doesn't have the wherewithal to spell most words correctly, I'm sure whatever she wrote doesn't make much sense, either. HOWEVER, I learned another valuable lesson I'll carry with me the rest of my life, taught to me by an...

    No Language Snob, Me

    As someone who uses the English language as a tool of work, I find it really hard to make myself read stories with bad spelling, punctuation and grammar. I'm not a language snob, though. I certainly don't mind using txt and blog abbreviations in private communications, as these...

    And maybe, just maybe, don't even judge me if you HAVE walked in my shoes. Everyone is different, and a little empathy and understanding can go a very long way.
