    Spelling and grammatical issues in thread titles

    I don't (generally) complain (much) here at MC (just everywhere else), but can't mods fix obvious spelling errors in thread titles?

    It drives me crazy!!

    Thanks. Sorry. It's been annoying me for over a year now, so I had to say something!!

    But you do understand what they are trying to say, right? Irritating, yes, but not really a major problem...??

    Re: speling and Gramaticle issues in thred tittles

    I figure if people can complain about sig lengths and reputation, I could reveal my irritation at thread title misspellings. It's always annoyed the bejesus out of me, but when I hit New Posts a few minutes ago, bang, there were three in a row and I just had to whine.

    I assume you spelled this one wrong on purpose then?

    Oops, something is spelled incorrectly?

    I don't care about the body of posts (okay, I'm lying, I do care a little), but the titles bug me. I know I've spelled words wrong, or left words out in titles before and I've asked a mod to fix it for me. Am I being a pain the tookus? Sorry!! It's just something that I thought could be fixed without ticking off the OP of the threads. Also, once a thread is out there, the OP can't fix it, can they?

    Re: speling and Gramaticle issues in thred tittles

    I totally sympathize with you stink, it irritates me too. BUT, I know the mods have their hands full with regular mod stuff. There's no way they could fix grammatical and spelling errors on top of everything else!!! They'd probably have to have a mod devoted specifically to that task! Come to think of it that sounds like a fun job!

    Re: Spelling and grammatical issues in thread titles

    Spelling is such a pet peeve of mine. But I try not to let it bug me too much, especially since this isnt really a "formal" place, ya know? But sometimes that damn persnickitey Virgo in me just gets the better of me though.

    Likewise. There's no "e" at the end of "persnickety".

    Re: Spelling and grammatical issues in thread titles

    I'm dying here! I'm an excellent speller but a lousy typist. I'm not too troubled by others' spelling unless it is really bad. (And I've seen one poster somewhere else who spells so poorly as not to be understood. Maybe I'll post an example sometime; it's not to be believed.)

    Among all the misspelled thread titles I've seen here my favorite is: If you WHERE gay! TD.
