Strait off let me tell you I am one of the world's worst spellers. In fact in standard testing back in grade school at the end of the year I always got perfect scores in every subject (math, science, history), and then would get in the 30s and 40s (out of 100) in spelling. They had a little bar graph for each subject and they were all maxed out till you got down to spelling and it was a little blip.
Why am I telling you this in a es8000 thread?
Because I'm also tired of how far down these forms have slid lately, as well as reviews on Amazon and other places. Tonyjd40, I was sick of reading your posts after the first couple you posted in this thread. Even though I'm interested in what you have to say and share, I hate reading every one of your posts. I'm not picking on you so please don't get mad. You are just one of many here and your posts are extremely frequent. I know you are smart enough to post better, so please try.
Posts above are correct, spelling is not a sign of intelligence. But in this modern time of internet browsers they are a sign of stupidity and laziness. Every browser out now has an auto spell check feature built in, and many have options/addons for grammar.
But to most of us it really doesn't come down to how it makes a poster look as the post above states, because most of us reading this don't care about if the person posting has the IQ of a 5 year old as long as they are posting good info and details.It actually comes down to the fact that a person posting with horrible grammar takes so much longer to read and understand.
Most of us out there have a life where we have to do other things believe it or not. We have limited time to read up and collect as much news and info as we can as quickly as we can so we can go do other stuff. Like watch our new TVs for instance. Instead, we have people that can't take an extra few sec. with their post to make it legible, so we get to spend twice as long trying to decipher it. Not to mention how often we have people get their tone misconstrue which leads to insults and flame wars.
So please folks, step up your game some, and lets get back to the es8000.
How about some more new pics, please
