It is beyond me why anyone would want to correct another adult's grammer or spellin on a damn motorcycle forum. I'll be 60 years old in a few months and i ain't never had anyone correct either my spellin or grammer, nor have i ever had a problem communicating. If this was a english literature forum.....ok, but it ain't.......lighten up.

Don't care what you do in life some one will criticize you for it.

If a person was to sit in a room not say a word some jerk would come over and say something negative about it.

Go on with your life and forget about the pinheads you come across they ain't worth spit.

60? holly crap you are old!

I only criticize my 66 year old sister, who is trying to act like a teenager. She uses "prolly" instead of "probably", "to" instead of "too" etc.

Ain't that whut brothers are fer?





By the way, Zeta, it's "grammar", not "grammer". JUST KIDDING !!!!

Grammar :) :laugh

sorry had to do it. I hear what you are saying. I don't correct peoples spelling or grammar mistakes, I know I make enough of them myself. As long as their sentences are coherent and I'm able to understand where they are coming from who cares.

I also cant spell and my grammar could be much better..I had someone once that was trying to help tell me in a pm about spell check..My reply was I was all ready using it.:)...I think we all are good at a lot of different things and anyone that finds it necessary to call someone out for there spelling may do it to try and make them selfs feel smart when alto of these same people cant do much of anything else.. Dam...Dont get me started on the people that also think there chit dont stink..:moonBart

I am not a grammar/spelling Nazi by any means, but the irony of misspelling "misspell" in this thread is just too much to pass up!!! :)

I have a bachelor's degree in journalism. I worked as an editor in the newsroom for several years. So, the bad grammar and spelling all jumps out at me. If I see an error in one of my own posts, I will always edit it to correct it. I can't help it.

But, I have to agree that pointing it out on a forum like this is a bit much. It does the OP no good, and it makes the one pointing it out look like a tool. (unless it is all in good fun of course as I intended the above)

I'm not gonna waiste time trying to correct grammar as long as I can understand whats being said. I'm a printer by trade, my grammar sucks, as well as my spelling, my job is to put it on paper, not to be a critic... I know this well as I am fully edumicated have a diplomat to prove that... even granulated college...

That was hell to type with spell check!!:nod

I can deal with the spelling and grammar, but people who don't use punctuation really piss me off. B/c I don't know when to stop reading and when to continue reading...

Heck I leave whole words out since my typing is slower than my thinking. Almost every post I make I have to go back an edit cause I can't even understand what I said. Wordsmith's have all kinds of fun with me. But at 65 I couldn't care less what they say or think. Their time is coming.
