Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me?

Seems to me that we as a group are particularly good at spelling. I'm constantly amazed I don't see the same common spelling errors I've seen in other forums...and no spell check either! What's up with that?

Just a thot ;-) LOLOL

I too have read in amazement at the linguistic articulation of this motley crew. I cheat, I use Google Chrome with spell checker. The little red squiggle line is, well, for your comfort, and gets my thoughts across.

Ha, I remember awhile back a young man about five years old, watching me type, in MS in fact. He commented that I used the backspace key more than he did... sigh.

Heh heh

hmmmm...

i think that i relish the freedom to misspell things and use improper grammar and slang here without being obsessive about doing everything perfectly - probly cuz as an english teacher, i get tired of following rules everywhere else!
