Interesting! Still, I read your note with ease. There was an uproar in our elementary school when the teachers taught writing by the having the children write creatively as much as they could, never minding how they spelled words. I will say, the children wrote creative stories, but we parents wondered what would happen with their grammar and spelling in later years. One teacher comment was, "Well, computers have spellchecks and grammar checks."

"I tired and tired to read that and finally became too tried to continue".

I suppose it works OK just so long as the jumbled word does not become a genuine word.

That's exactly how I read. I understood your note perfectly. Hence I can't bring myself to wear clothes made by FCUK and I never remember charcter's names from books. Isn't everyone the same?

And I thought that a spell checker was used by a practitioner of the black arts Wink

I Found your message surprisingly easy to read, Morgan, despite the misspellings. I hope that doesn't keep people from at least trying to spell correctly.

Barbara Santin of Clearwater, Florida and her husband noticed a highway construction sign that read "EXSPECT DELAYS". Her husband took a picture of the sign and she sent it to Govenor Jeb Bush. She received an automated reply, so she called the St. Petersburg Times, which sent out a photographer and reporter to check out the sign. The sign was gone, but they noticed another one that read "NIGHTLY LANE CLOSEING BEGIN OCT. 8".

She told the Times that she had noticed misspellings in their paper, also. So when they printed an article about the signs, they ran it through spellcheck three times and consulted a dictionary.
