Do I Have a Problem?

I emailed myself a link to a web page, and I made a minor typo in the subject line.

I corrected it.

Hi. My name is Harvey, and I'm a spelloholic.

  1. Nope. No problem that I can tell. Spelling Nazis unite!

  2. Sounds perfectly normal to me. I do the same thing.

  3. I can mostly spell, and I am annoyed at bad spelling, but I cannot type worth a fiddlers damn. I figure, like Twain talking about his daughters bio of him, the misspellings add character and amusement Anyone who doesn't like it can proofread it and correct the mistakes for me. Meanwhile I can come to Bad Example, which is, as fat as I can tell, 99 and 44/100 misspelling free.

    Except for commenters.

  5. One's spelling is like online text-clothing. Do you want to look like you rolled out of bed after passing out the night before? Or do you want to appear classy and stylish?

    Go for classy and stylish. Or just plain nekkid. Nekkid can be good, too.

  6. So Harv, How do you deal with posters who type something generic and relatively unrelated to your original post, and then include a link to some website? I've been getting more of them recently and just figured out that there was a pattern.

  7. I get a lot of those, too. Blogger automatically marks most of those as spam for me, but sometimes they get through and I have to go into the Blogger control panel under "Comments" and mark them as spam manually.
