spelling

now i'm not saying i spell things correctly all the time. i tend to make mistakes, but i really do try and catch or correct them prior to sending a message, posting a comment, publishing an entry. depending on who i may be speaking to or emailing, i may even misspell words on purpose because there may be some significance to it, but it's understood by the other party that i'm doing it on purpose. however, when posting to a public forum, i feel pretty strongly about spelling things correctly so one doesn't look like a complete idiot. can i just say that it seems more often than not i cannot help but get mad when reading comments these days especially from things published as news or news commentary. things like healthcare reform, the war, and other social issues are important. if one feels the need to argue their point, i believe they should. what really gets me though are those who argue their point and want to be taken seriously when they keep spelling the same word(s) wrong. i've seen some misspellings that are just way off too! if an individual had a basic grasp of the english language, and spelled by sounding the word out, they would not even think about putting that extra letter in. aside from these social/political topics which get people riled up and commenting, sports also seems to be another topic which gets people going. i've seem some butchering of spelling in some comments. for example in this article i found this awesome comment.

It is true no Super Bowel coach won a Super Bowel with another team, but Mike Holmgren and Bill Parcells did very good with other teams (losing Super Bowels with other teams). We need a GM!

ok guy, maybe you should become an english expert instead of remaining a football expert. having interchangeable super bowels with different teams is kind of disgusting. additionally, i feel quite bad for holmgren and parcells for having good (super) bowels with teams and then losing their bowels (in a super way, must have been painful btw) with other teams. can one person's argument for a gm be taken seriously when they're talking about bowels? it's frickin BOWLS!

the ones that get me the most though, are when supposed "americans" create signs for rallies to keep out immigrants, and they completely butcher words or can't even differentiate between words like 'there', 'their', and 'they're'. these people are angry because immigrants are coming in and taking jobs from "real americans" (which in a lot of cases are jobs which "real americans" refuse to do), and yet the "real americans" don't even have a basic grasp of "real english"! how ironic (or moronic) is that?!
