Salam,
I was just wondering why so many people on here whose native language is English do not spell/type correctly? To me it's annoying, and I feel makes that person appear stupid.

I agree. I think there should be a rule that people should type in english while on the most active forums, and not abbreviate. Leave that for the halal fun and gender rooms.

I hate that too!

Well, I understand if you misspell one or two words, but screwing up an entire post with your less-than-stellar keyboarding skills...:grumbling :grumbling

Well, at least there's me, the man who makes no mistakes, but one, maybe two at max in my lifetime.:D

Its not a matter of spelling incorrectly, but using text speak due to laziness I guess. A few incorrectly spelled words are okay, considering almost always you would understand the context. On the hand text speak is annoying..

This is a topic that has been brought up many times though. :X:hiding:

Is it the British who replace it first, or Americans? :p

In Malaysia, if you wrote a report or answer an exam in American spelling, you'll get - "BAD ENGLISH" remarks on your paper. Some lecturers would throw away your reports if you use American english.

I think all my English teachers and lecturers are British graduate, because they emphasized on the "QUEEN ENGLISH" usage.

I believe the main problem to be people's laziness as aforementioned. If people actually took a second to read over what they wrote or took the two extra seconds to write out a few words, it would definitely help.

Some people come on here to "hang around" I suppose so they are not concerned about the way they type.

I wonder if they know that their posts are being ignored by some who have no idea what they're trying to say.
