PLEASE- proper grammar and spelling- PLEASE

Post  J-Bob on Fri Apr 17, 2009 6:50 pm

I know this is a relaxed forum for hanging out and exchanging ideas... :/

But PLEASE, after you type something out- go back and read through it study , correcting any spelling typos (or fixing any sloppy grammatical errors.)

TIP: If you're not certain about a word, GOOGLE it!
Searching "destory" in GOOGLE shows me that "destroy" is the proper spelling for that word.


Neutral When a post is sloppily typed out, it can make the post difficult to read and/or it can convey the wrong idea you're trying to get across.


(The "Preview" button is your friend, don't neglect it!)



I'm done with my rant,
thank you.

ALSO. If you're using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome web browsers, when a word is typed incorrectly, there is a red squiggly line that will appear below it. (Go ahead, try it.)

(I do understand that there are some words and names that are not in the auto-correct dictionary, but please, Google is always available.)

I've NEVER had a squigly line show up. And I believe Summer's never seen it either. Please, tell me how to activate this? 'Cause I'm sure I'm not the only has who doesn't know what you're talking about.

Internet Explorer doesn't support the auto-correct function.

firefox

I use Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome and both those browsers support the red squiggly. Very Happy
