Proves he did have spell checker, it just doesn't work. That spellcheck application is pure garbage

Kind of like calling the kettle black, spelling around here isn't always much better, both are funny to me as I have my own lapses in grammatical accuracy mostly because of getting in a hurry and not checking spell check, which cant spell amorphophallus (it's a plant/flower), but it happens.  :dancingbanana:

 

For the love of all things holy, do not start a grammar war.

I don't like grammar wars. I jump in & out of a contractors forum that I don't like at all because they are a bunch of jerks. They were making fun of a guy one time & I was trying to keep it civil. They started getting rude with me. A few days later the OP got back on & explained. The guy was recovering from a motorcycle accident where it left him in very bad condition. He had some paralysis in his fingers & had some minor brain damage that kept him from expressing himself. Needless to say most of these guys felt bad & apologized. The sad thing is the guy was a carpenter that will never work again & once really enjoyed that forum. I know you folks aren't like that & I'm the same way I get a kick out of some of the listings that we all share. I learned back then not to say much about someones edgumacation  :D

No, grammar wars are childish and mean. that said there are many CL ads (and occaisionally posts) that are very hard to "de-cipher". More than grammar, poor syntax can really destroy the meaning of a post, or reply to a post

The fact that you realize it puts you way ahead of many, lol. Like I said before, if the post is misunderstood it is very hard to help someone, other that, I'm good
