Yeah, I could read that relatively quickly, but we don't need more evidence that it's okay to spell badly! :) Anyhoo, my counterargument is that if you 'typo' like that, there's more likelihood of your reader misinterpreting a word (what with all the 'near' words in English...).

That's really interesting. I'm alway intrigued by these 'brain teasers'.


BTW, I read through that post almost as fast as I would have if it had been spelled correctly. Very interesting how these brains of ours (well, some of us:D ), work.

Hey, Loren, at least you were using complete sentences in this thread.


The recent problem typer in this forum not only didn't spell correctly, he/she/it also typed in fragmented and partial sentences. The combination made it nearly impossible to understand what was being asked.


I think using correct spelling and at least an attempt to use correct grammar is a common courtesy to fellow humans. Just call me pedant. :)

I've always typed like that. Spelling is BS. I am not inclined to believe in spelling any more than I am to belive in a god predominantly worshiped on the opposing side of the world from where i reside.


I decided heathrial was smart because she never attempted to correct me. I was wondering if she would. If she did I would have thought 'hmm'..still not having enough to conclude what I thought of her. When time went by and I saw she never corrected me I considered her to have a subtle complex intelligence on the matter. Thank god, cause if she was correcting me we would both be in hell.


I have no idea what I'm talking about, I do know I had 2 ventis (20 ouch cup of coffee) at starbucks a few hours ago.


hope I was illuminating

It would be even more bizarre if he frequented PlanetReplay and regularly requested re-runs of "Saved By the Bell"... It would explain why he's so angry with the U.S. though.
