Proof reading and spelling

Doesn't anyone do it more? I mean some of these posts are pretty bad, you wonder what they were thinking when typing. I'm no genius and am not perfect but I try and proof read before posting.

Don't you mean to say, "Doesn't anyone do it anymore?"

Also, "proof read" is one word - proofread. Check your dictionary.

That's just it. With auto-correct so common, people tend to get lazy (although that's no excuse to skip an overall proofread).

Bad grammar and spelling usually jump out at me. I try to make sure everything is correct before clicking "post reply."

Remember, kids: proper grammar and spelling can mean the difference between

"Lets help our neighbor jack off the horse" and

"Let's help our neighbor, Jack, off the horse."

My dear renfrick1, we all must learn to accept the inevitable. As a nation-family, we'uns Americans are becoming dumber, more coarse and far less compassionate than I ever thought I'd see in my sixty years.
As the U.S.A. steamrollers toward a solid, Third World status, interested voices like our's are becoming less and less and less relevant.
May we once again, and before it's too late, deserve for God to Bless America. :banghead:
