Now, I am not slamming everyone but stuff like: ducktape (WTF?), barel, germanny, Saddamn, and: "My casr isnnt workinng" is pretty annoying. Most people here are careful with their writing and take time to edit it if they made a mistake but some.... are destroying the english language!!! Doggonit P.S.: Remember, it's DUCT TAPE not Ducktape!!!!

I have a roll of tape that has a picture of a duck on the package and it says in big bold letters"Duck Tape". As to the other, lighten up, some people don't type for a living.

"english" is spelled with a capital 'E'.

I am not picking on slight mistakes such as forgetting a period or not making the E in English capitalized but just errors (such as brake instead of break, two VERY diff. words) which can be painful to read and take very, very little time to eliminate.

Would this also include things like...'IIRC', 'ROTFL', and the ever popular 'IBTL' ?? Do We use these to save time, or is it that the more We abbreviate, the more We forget how to spell simple words. If You can understand the main point of what someone's trying to say, then WTF ?? Oh, I'm sorry...I thought this was about bacon. My bad.

I agree with your sentiment, but I've seen poor spelling and grammar scare away more "fence sitters" than pro-gunners. Compared to DU, most members here are very literate, but for many people without much experience with the Internet (therefore, very little experience with just how poorly the average person writes), the first experience in a newsgroup or other discussion group can be disappointing. It's hard to take someone seriously when they make blatant spelling and grammar errors when you're exposed to professional (more or less) edited text in newspapers and magazines each day. In my opinion, if you want the web site to appeal to a wider audience, we'll have to do better.z

AH HA! Saddam is a romanization of a arabic name. There is no wrong way to spell it only current accepted usage. This is why old maps say "Tokio" and new ones say "Tokyo." Saddamn is merely a phonetical rendering of a foreign word thats only correct rendering is in arabic. This is way you have several spellings for names of muslims and their organizations. Remember Khadafi? aka Quadafi aka Kadaffi aka Khadafi aka Qudaffy Duck aka Kadaffy Ducktape

I like my dad's attitude about spelling and grammar. He's had business associates make fun of the way he spells, types, and sometimes talks (his southern drawl doesn't blend well in Oregon). His response is always something to the effect of he would rather concentrate on more important things, and hire somebody for minimum wage that can type and spell for him. It normally shuts them up when they realize spelling and grammar are not the fundamentals that make a person sucessful. Sure, strong written communication skills help, but they can be purchased for a very low price.

[b]Your[/b] crazy to think that [b]their[/b] are people on this and other boards who can't spell. OSUBeaver - as for your dad's accent - f*ck his associates - southern accents are cool! As for not being able to spell correctly or having poor grammatical skills, I guess having enough money to pay folks to spell for you is cool, but if I'm dealing with someone who I find can't spell, I wonder what else they can't do because it's not "important" to them. Not a slam - just reminds me of the "hunters" that bring their rifles into the shop to have it zeroed for a hunt because they don't have time.

Some people have a way with words, uthers nott hav way. [:D] I don't mind an occasional typo or misspelling, but this [i]is[/i] a forum of the written word. Glaring errors (especially [i]multiple[/i] glaring errors) do affect my reading of the post. I'm especially appalled at the useage of a [i]correctly[/i] spelled word that is completely wrong for the context, such as (as was previously mentioned) "muzzle [i]break[/i]." AAARRGGHH!

LOL We had a few hunters just bring in the scope and ask for it to be zeroed. As for spelling… Well that’s something that I have been fighting with for years. I have dyslexia. But on the other hand I have very good oral communication skills, and have taught for a short time at a community college. And when you get the spelling nazi on people cases. They have a tendency to leave. You might say oh well better off with out him. Maybe that person knew something that might of benefited you in the future? I guess your loss. For instance. How many of you know that I am a Gunsmith? And have been in business for 11 years? Not just a parts changer, but a full fledged custom shop? Oh well I guess any knowledge you might of gleaned from me is.. how you would say? YOUR LOSS!!!!! Ill just keep my mouth shut and return to lurking before the spelling nazi’s get me.

Thanks thebeekeeper1, That’s the first time I have finished typing a post angrier than when I started. When you get ridiculed all your life about your spelling it becomes a touchy point. The spell check is too slow at my location so I type this in MS word, and cut and paste into the message box. That is why the lack of errors.
