Do you go back and read your posts?

Hey guys, we ALL should go back and proof read our posts! Can you say grammar and spelling? Does completeness mean anything to you? And for God's sake learn the difference between lose and loose.
Thanks for letting me vent; it's just that peoples lack of grammatical and spelling skills today is really shocking.

Uh oh! You've stepped on a sacred rite here. You just don't tell these folks how to spell or make a paragraph or anything to do with grammar.

You will be boiled in oil and hung out on the side this forum to dry.

For some reason it doesn't matter how many times I proof read it while I'm typing it. As soon as I post it, and read it in the actual thread...that's when I'll notice that I used "there" instead of "their" or edited a sentence and left in words from the original version. I get so mad.

I don't mind errors in others posts but try to clean mine up. I have a friend who sends emails loaded with every error known to man. He is not very well educated but has some of the most interesting and sometimes profound thoughts of anyone I know. It's the ideas I'm interested in but to each his own.

Seriously, let it go. People have varying levels of writing skills. Point here is to communicate your point to GT members, not to criticize their skills at doing so.
