    Default Spelling!

    I know i risk sounding like a grumpy old man (aka Victor Meldrew), but has anyone noticed how bad the spelling and punctuation is on here?

    For those that are interested, here's some examples :-

    The things that stop your car are the BRAKES not BREAKS.
    When you pose a question, you ASK not ARKS.
    If you refer to something that belongs to someone, the item is THEIRS not THERES.
    If you're referring to a group of items, it is THEY'RE not THERE.
    If you WANT to do something it's not WONT.
    A WITCH is a woman with a pointy hat, its WHICH you really mean.
    If someone or something is all over the place, it's EVERYWHERE not EVERY WERE.

    Please end a sentence with a full stop. Some messages are so difficult to read, due to the lack of commas & full stops, that you have to read them over & over to make sense of them!

    Also, keep the 'text speak' for texting, this is a forum & you have a full QWERTY keyboard on your PC, use it!

    Come on guys & girls, help us all out to understand what you're saying by adding the right punctuation & spelling. It's not rocket science!

    Message to the moderators - Can you add a spell checker to the forum? I have seen other forums with them.

    Rant over, for now!

    Not too much of a problem for me as ...

    Eye halve a spelling chequer,
    It came with my pea sea;
    It plainly marques for my revue
    Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

    Eye strike a quay and type a ward
    And weight four it two say
    Weather aye am wrong oar write
    It shows me strait a weigh.

    As soon as a mist ache is maid
    It nose bee four two long,
    And eye can put the error rite
    It's rare lea ever wrong.

    Eye have run this poem threw it
    Aye am shore your pleased to no;
    Eats let her perfect awl the weigh
    My checker tolled me sew.

    I know, i know, spell checkers only work if you have spelt the correct word incorrectly. If you type the wrong word correctly no spell checker in the world will be able to correct it.
