Recently there has been confusion and excuses being thrown around due to people misspelling simple words… Please note while I may use recent examples in this post I am not singling out or trying to make a fool of anyone with this post… If you have the ability to learn and are willing I have no problem with anyone…

To put it simple what is known by most is not known by all, let me point out a few tools that can improve your spelling and everyone’s comfort in reading what is written…

First off before you hit the submit button there is a preview button… This allows you to reread your post and check the formatting before it is submitted… This is free, just like your ability to post here… Respect the privilege…

Why should I reread what I write you might ask? Well on the Internet remember you are nothing but what you write and the impression that your writing and your profile project… So by all means when trying to come off as one of the elite by all means reread what you write and use a tool to help you catch your mistakes… Use of tools is very human and in my eyes does not mean you are weak or unintelligent…

“Sadly one of the simplest things one can do to appear more intelligent or at least show their self respect (that needs no tool) is to capitalize their I when speaking of themselves”…

Some of the tools available;

First I will mention the one that costs some money, unless you are warez savvy… NOTE I am not condoning using anything illegal when there are free alternatives… The first tool that can be used is Micro$$oft WORD… WORD has settings for active spelling and grammar correction as you type… To me typing a post or response in a WORD or similar environment is the most smart and easiest way to clean up and correct your writings… It also has the added benefit of making you spell better…

Now on the free side of WORD we have OpenOffice.org Which I will admit I have not yet tried but it is supposed to be compatible and similar to WORD and other office programs… Did I mention it is free?

On a simpler side of things there is the Firefox browser… Now what many do not realize is any text input box such as the one you type your response into can be set to spell check by simply right clicking in said box and checking off spell check this field… How simple it this?

Firefox also has many add-ons including but not limited to separate dictionaries… So no excuses that your computer in your native language of French, Galician, or even Esperanto cannot spell check in English… Which is the native language of this forum…

Now on the obscure word that Firefox cannot catch or does not have the correct suggestion for a word a simple copy paste of the word into Google will usually yield results on the proper spelling…

With mention to Google let us not forget what a tool Google itself can be… Google can be used as a spell checker on tough words and it can also be used to define words… Simply type the word define before any word to get a better understanding of the word or phrase you are using or trying to decipher… Google can also be a treasure trove of knowledge to back up any claim you make… If of course it is true…

So before you proclaim yourself a follower of Anton Levey or before you question the number of stars in the solar system, please do a little research with Google before you make a fool of yourself and basically disrespect everyone here reading…

Remember while everyone loves a laugh, intelligent well thought out posts should outweigh the ones full of blather and are nothing more than simple mental masturbation or vomit…

Now lets move on and hopefully all become better posters…

The purpose of this forum is communication. While good spelling and grammar may not be mandatory, it does better enable effective communication.

Google Toolbar has a very handy spell checker as well as being a useful tool in general.

As to bad grammar.... the best thing you can do is read more real books - not crap on the web. At the very least you will get some feel for how sentences are constructed.

Yeah, I wouldn't think spelling to be that big of an issue, hoping to come to intelligent community. That really wasn't hard to read... I guess I'm used to reading poor spelling and general internet speak. Spelling, putting effort into what you write...This shouldn't be a problem. It's sad, really.

Other grammatical points I'd like to clarify, in case future and current members didn't make it past 5th grade English:

Always capitalize the following--

The first letter of the first word of a sentence.
When referring to oneself as "I".
Proper nouns, such as names, cities, days of the week, etc.

Break your post up into paragraphs when--

You start a completely new thought that bears no relation to the previous paragraph.
If you plan on expanding on a line of thought in greater detail, so much so that it deserves its own paragraph.

"There"--a place, ie, "She put it over there."
"Their"--plural possessive, ie, "They should put their toys away."
"They're"--Contraction for "They are", ie, "They're crazy."

"Your"--a possessive, ie, "Isn't that your book?"
"You're"--a contraction, "You are", ie, "You're going right now!"

"It's"--contraction for "It is", ie, "It's not unreasonable."
"Its"--a singular possessive, ie, "Its plot is predictable."

Punctuation--

There are two spaces after a period, exclamation mark, question mark and a colon (:).
One space after a comma and semicolon (;).

Commas are used to separate ideas within a sentence, without going so far out of left field that you need to start a new sentence. The clause it separates should relate in some way to the general topic of the sentence. When you put more than two commas in a sentence, you run the risk of having a "run on" sentence.

Well, that's all I have to offer at this point. I'm sure I've missed a few key "rules", and if I did, please post them for all to view and learn from.

I like the idea of promoting good grammatical use. A friend a mine mocks this board on end because of some of it's "elitist" viewpoints on spelling, but I personally highly encourage it. This is what seperates our board from all those pointless pothead riddled message boards such as Flamahuas. This board does what it can to support intelluctual discussion, this place would be a mess if bad behavior was tolerated.

Also on a side note, I thought this board had an automatic spellcheck. It wouldn't be a bad idea..

If anything, the only thing I encourage is the proper usage of paragraphs, full stops, question marks, etc. I couldn't care less if words are misspelled accidentally, so lng as dey dnt luk lyk dis (Fuck, that hurts my eyes...). Spelling something like a chav or like you were typing a text message out on a restrictive phone or phone budget on a forum isn't the best way to go. I just makes you look like a retard.

Really, and truthfully, this isn't the problem I've noticed more on these forums. Something not as noticeable per se, but I've noticed it a lot, and it really pisses me off.

There is a free app for Internet Explorer called ieSpell... I've downloaded it and it works. I mostly use Opera anyway, which comes with a spell checker.

As for having one on the site, you'd have to take that up with Xear. He's the head honcho here, along with Disabuse. Personally I don't think one is necessary. The few who can't bother to spell correctly 95% of the time tend not to last very long around here.

Some people are irked by "spelling Nazis", and forums who run a tight ship like we try to do. That's fine for them, they certainly don't have to join. If they're perfectly okay with forums that consist of nothing but a bastardization of the English language and as you mentioned, random stoned posts, then we'd rather not have them ;\)

Personally I think How a person presents themselves online is often indicative of how they present themselves in person. The same people that can't be bothered to use capitalization or punctuation are often the same people that don't bother to brush their teeth or use deodorant.
The same people that are lazy about checking their spelling are often also lazy about how they conduct their daily life.

And even if these things aren't always true, lazy writing is still a sign of lazy thinking.

I know my punctuation,Capitalization is not perfect, But I'm trying to work on it. I'm kind of slow learner when it comes to studying from a book. Its just the way it is. But I try to make my post the best I can. Which is better then what some do. And I guess that is what keeps me from being kicked off the forum. So thanks to those who are patient with me. It is most appreciated.

Couldn't agree more. No one held a gun to anyone's head to join this site. The rules and regs are out there for anyone to read prior to posting. If a new user were to spend a little more time lurking and reading, instead of jumping right in and puking all over the forums, they would realize we hold a high standard here towards grammar and spelling. Hmm, when I went to high school back in the dark ages, we were held to these very simple standards. I guess it's true what they say about our education system today. Feed them through the chute and let society deal with them. Fuck it if they don't know how to do simple algebra or spell. Whining and complaining about the rules and regs only digs your hole deeper.

I have a hard time spelling words correctly sometimes. I have Firefox and that helps a lot. When I do post something on here or other forums that I belong to I usually take a long time submitting the post because I am rereading and editing everything I have typed. I am really good at run on sentences and I have to go back and edit stuff out all the time. I do this while writing letters to my friend in Iraq or even to my daughters teachers. When I am finished with anything written or typed I feel confident that my point has gotten across and the other person can understand what they are reading. It is very annoying to try to decipher misspelled words.

I have noticed this is something I only started caring about in the last 3 years or so. My husband is a spelling Nazi and has helped me care about how I present myself in written and typed correspondence. I still have a lot to work on but doing something to better myself makes more sense than trying to defend something I have written against others who spell and use correct grammar when I haven't.

My daughter has gotten an A in spelling for the last 4 years, she is in the 6th grade.

It has taken me 15 minutes to post this, hehe.

Better yourself do not defend or promote ignorance or laziness...

Others should carve this into their forehead in reverse so they can read it every time they look in the mirror... Free tattoo anyone? Not that mistakes do not happen... There is always some idiot who thinks it is better wasting time to try to defend their ignorance or outright laziness when it comes to presenting themselves... Even in this thread...

Thank you...

It has been discussed. As far as putting one, it doesn't look like that is going to happen. There are plenty of resources available to people online to help improve their spelling and grammar already. It is ridiculously easy to obtain them as well.

As stated already in this thread, you have to be extremely lazy to not get one. And if you're truly that lazy, you have bigger issues in your life that need more attention then your publicizing thoughts on this forum.

I hope my grammar is not too bad! I'm more used to "business English" than "usual English" or "Shakespear English"... I do my best (as usual)! I'm forced to have a french/english dictionnary next to me, or at least google translation.

I generally re-read my posts not so much for the spelling but rather for figuring out if what I've written is clear & understandable. Also to ensure it reflects the most acccuratly my thoughts. During this content review, I generally catch the spelling mistakes on the fly...

The most important for me is : Think before writing!

On the subject I like this quote from Boileau :

 Quote:
"Ce qui se conçoit bien s'énonce clairement et les mots pour le dire arrivent aisément".

In English: "Whatever is well conceived is clearly said, and the words to say it flow with ease. "


And, oh yes, a last word:

Sometimes I'm lazy. I just choose the be lazy! I take the responsabilities of my lazyness off course, but I reserve me the right to be lazy.
And also, I'm always a little bit irritated with I see "rules being imposed". I don't know why, it's a kind of "repulsion gut-feeling"! After all I'm the only one who can impose rules to myself.
So I check my spelling because I just want to do it, not because of this forum rules. For instance, Nemesis, the two spaces after the period: forget about it LOL! I'll not complicate my life for that. But thanks for the tip, if one day I have to write some "important" letter, I'll remeber it...

And if one day I'm so lazy that I write a very crapy post which fuck your eyes, just skip it instead of whining and complaining about it!

It's because most members here are used to setting their own boundaries in life, instead of them being set down (and expected to be followed) by others. That's what makes a gathering of Satanists such a tightrope walk, whether it be virtually or in reality. I myself got a little pissy after a post I'd made on another forum was deleted as being "too risque" and not appropriate for young people (it's a budgie enthusiast forum). But, I took it in good grace, acknowledging the fact that I am not a mod there, and let the issue drop. I have been a good little boring girl there ever since.

 Quote:
Nemesis, the two spaces after the period: forget about it LOL

I did some research on that, actually. Turns out that in HTML they automatically leave one space after a period, even though one might have entered two spaces. I guess it's to keep things more uniform. The double space rule was used mainly with old typewriters, and in hand writing. I still do a double space out of habit, although when it's posted on the forum it comes up as a single space. Oh well

To everyone in general, not you Nem. What you type and how you present it is a reflection of you. 99% of us will never meet another user. We form our opinions and perceptions of each and every user based on what they type in these little boxes. If you don't care and find it ok to come across as a retard, we are viewing you as a retard. If you don't mind coming across as a drunken monkey at the keyboard, you will be treated as a drunken monkey at the keyboard. I would hope that if you were meeting someone for the first time, or going for an important interview or promotion, you wouldn't just roll out of bed, pull something out of the clothes hamper, and plop yourself in the chair. I would expect you would comb your hair, shave, brush your teeth, perhaps take a shower or dab a little perfume on, and find your finest clean outfit. You would shake hands and act like you want to be there and attentive. Why should these forums be any different? Respect, dignity, manners, and self worth. Have we forgotten these values in our pursuit to make it to 300 posts or stroking our egos?

That is very much true prophet. And I hope I have made a descent impression to everyone. As I have stated before, I know I'm not the smartest guy and that my spelling and so forth isn't the best. I am working on it to the best of my ability, And I hope that I have made some friends or at least gained some respect sense i first started posting on this forum.

Another free tool that I had forgotten to mention in my original post is AbiWord this is another free-ware program that acts like M$ WORD... Although the spell checker is not up to the same standard as that found in WORD... Any unknown spellings can be checked with Google and added to the dictionary...

Three periods after my sentences is just my style on the Internet...

The day you are that lazy just refrain from hitting the submit button... It is that simple... After all what place does lazy or crappy have here? Show more respect for yourself than that...

Did anything in my original original post in this thread sound whiny or complaining? I do wonder... If a stranger came and vomited in your house, would what you do be considered whining and complaining?

I respect myself that's why I can be sometimes indulgent with me...

Did anything in my original original post in this thread sound whiny or complaining? I do wonder... If a stranger came and vomited in your house, would what you do be considered whining and complaining?


Ta2zz, don't feel targeted. I was not thinking about you when I wrote that! On the other hand, do you think I'm whinning & complaining about following the rules?

I think Nem well understood me on that...

This is exactly why I have decided to work on my spelling, grammar, and punctuation. There is no point in defending yourself when you make a post that has poor spelling, run on sentences, and horrible grammar. What you are doing is trying to defend laziness and ignorance.

What is the reason for posting a "crappy post which fuck your eyes..." on a forum that is all about conversing with other people?

Do you not want everyone to understand the point you are trying to make?

The whole reason for a forum is to interact with other people of a like mind or that have similar ideas, values. Posting something that people cannot read or understand and then trying to defend the reasons why you do it is ridiculous.

And also, I'm always a little bit irritated with I see "rules being imposed". I don't know why, it's a kind of "repulsion gut-feeling"! After all I'm the only one who can impose rules to myself.
So I check my spelling because I just want to do it, not because of this forum rules.

Indulgence does not always equate with laziness. One can gorge themselves on chocolate and lay around in their pj's all day on the weekend, but when it's time to work or better yourself, a person who regards themselves with a high esteem wouldn't be caught dead going to a business meeting wearing their ratty shirt and food-stained boxers....Don't be shocked to find that your bad posts have been deleted, as you have only yourself to blame. Keep any ramblings or odd trains of thought limited to the shout box on the home page or in the chat room.

Antagonist, if that's the case you must feel like you're having an epileptic seizure due to the spelling and grammar in some of the posts on this forum lol!
As an afterthought, if MY spelling or grammar is in any way responsible for your twitchiness, I apologise.
