I Won't Join Groups With Spelling Mistakes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 58 People

    I Just Can't!

    Bad spelling really gets to me. I come across groups that interest me all the time - only to find there's a stupid spelling mistake in the title, and I just can't bring myself to join them. The last one had 'friends' spelt 'freinds' - which revolted me enough to make...

    Irksome

    Yes, I am a perfectionist.  Yes, I am something of a grammar Nazi. Yes, I avoid groups with spelling errors.I find them irksome.

    I'm not proud of it but it just seems

    so wrong. Joining the group is endorsing the title. If I saw it in my own writing, I wouldn't be able to go without correcting. Looking at that title over and over again would be too frustrating.

    Why Would I?

    Personally,  I find spelling a challenge. This is why I use the spell checker provided or use an alternative source. Additionally, if your group is grammatically incorrect, I can't join. I would feel like too much of a hypocrite. (Sometimes I don't catch the errors until...

    Unless I have already, of course, without noticing the error. I often misspell "your," aiming for "you're," darn it.

    Frustrating!

    I probably have one group that I joined with a spelling mistake just because it was relevant and it had too many members, so it was kinda pointless to create a new one if all the people are in the other one with their experiences. But yeah, it's just so damn stupid when people...

    YES!!!!!

    Or bad grammar, for that matter.  There are a few that I have had to scratch my head and go "huh?" over, because their grammar was so terrible!  Even if I agree with the topic, I am not going to join one, because the founder did not care enough to double check...
