    Well there are several missed capitals in there and no full stop at the end. You lose.

    It`s actually kind of interesting to ponder on the reasons it angers us so much to see spelling mistakes. Do the poeple making them strike us as idiots? If so, do we think they`re dangerous to humanity, or do we just feel superior to them? Or is it just stupid that if a language already exists and has rules, we don`t use it as it should be used? :P

    Unfortunately, yudontn0me, "gray" and "grey" are both perfectly correct, acceptable spellings. That`s like getting your panties in a bunch over "honor" and "honour", another set of perfectly acceptable spellings that simply differ by region of the world.

    I found the Proper Apostrophe use one MUCH more helpful for the wonderful spellers we find on the internet.

    I pride myself on proper grammar and punctuation, so I already knew all of that stuff, except for the possessive name use of an apostrophe. Charles` and Charles`s both being proper acceptable methods of employing the apostrophes, but to be consistent. I found myself often wondering which to use in a situation, so glad to have that cleared up.

    Anyways, before anyone tries to go around to find typos in some of my posts to point them out. I don`t care. But it`s VERY noticeable that I make an effort not to completely massacre a language that is so easy to grasp.

    Also makes for an easier read for everyone.

    I`m sorry but it isn`t so much a spelling problem so as misuse of the words....the spelling correct in all the cases it is just a matter of using the wrong words. My biggest peeve out of the bunch would be "then" and "than" ....but a bigger one I see ( especially in dating ads)is ..." I am a free spirited loving WOMEN.....big turn off ...am I dealing with Sybal here ???

    anyways is not a word in the english language, but anyway is. never begin a sentence with a conjunction.

    The one that really BUGS me is "every day" and "everyday". They are two totally different words/phrases meaning 2 totally different things, and when you see an advert on TV saying "So tune your kids into the ABC`s Kids Education programs everyday", you know that sanity and reason will soon be as extinct as the thylacine.

    I used to be guilty of `alot` I used to be guilty of a lot of these actually. This should be given to all those who download a chat system. Nice little bible for those who seem to fail to grip English grammar. Oh and Buttersisluv is right, `mispelling` is missing an s. The irony is killing me.

    It is really a shame. Anyone who has made it at the very least, up to the 6th grade should know the differences between all of these words. Typos happen, especially when you are typing out your thoughts quickly, but really everyone should know this.
