I Hate Typos In Experience Titles

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 167 People


    I make my fair share of typos.  I am fluent in typonese - I read it, write it and can speak it.  However, I just cringe upon locating a group that fits me and yet there's a typo in the name ... ugh!  I've actually found myself creating new groups minus the...

    How Conceited Is This?

    Maybe this will be for the best... I do understand that maybe groups need to be distinguished from others, and the occasional 'u' for 'you' is whatever. But there are a lot of groups I really relate to that I just couldn't join because I feel like the bad title is a...

    And In Everything Else...

    I hate typographical errors in everything, but they are particularly heinous when acting as a headline, which applies to EP group names.  If I were not so self-conscious, I would do the same as AbbyNormal, and create my own, error-free group name!  (See AN, another...

    It Grinds On My Last Nerve!

    It makes no sense. If you're gonna post something, at least make sure the spellings are right! Simple spelling errors, like words that are difficult to spell, I can understand. But simple language? Why? It's almost as bad as the lazy slang typing!

    I'm all for same-sex rights

    and equality... but the title's grammatical error "I Don't Care if YOUR Gay Straight or Bi"... that almost kept me from joining. Call me a stickler, but it just bothered me so much that it took me quite some time to finally join the group. I stand with y'all, but YOU'RE...

    Now I'm Paranoid!

    I have been going through all my groups and looking at the titles. I don't want to encourage bad behavior.

    A Typo's One Thing

    But when people start joining that typo'ed group, that creates a problem. It can't be properly searched so it's kind of hidden, hard to find, but for some reason people keep joining anyway. hen it gets to the point where more people are in the misspelled one than the properly...

    I Hate Joining Them...

    Everyone makes typos...but in group titles?  Really?  I mean, come ON.  I don't even like JOINING groups with misspelled titles--even if it's a group that I would really want to join, otherwise.  I can't do it.  It makes me crazy!  I'll think to...

    Yeah , but let's face it.

    Many of the stories posted don't have perfect spelling or grammar either. It used to drive me crazy, but then I realized, these people don't have to be perfect for me to like them. As long as I can understand what they are trying to say, I can read and enjoy.

    I Just..

    I can't stand typos anywhere, but when they're in the title of something or somewhere important, it is one of my BIGGEST pet peeves.
