    Default Spelling and Grammar

    I have noticed a number of posters recently whose spelling and grammar have been very poor.

    I understand that the foreign ladies might have difficulty with the written word as opposed to the spoken word, but there is no excuse for everyone else.

    I think texting is to blame for some of it but it seems that our education system may have let a few people down.

    Why can't we have a spellcheck on EI similar to the one on Microsoft Word which has helped me to improve?

    I think in your case its simply a case of not listening to your teacher while at school & looking into space
    Teacher: What have u learned in your history lesson today?
    Westside: History? I thought it was geography class sir?
    Teacher: the usual smart arse talk out of u, I'm reporting u to principal
    Westside:I don't care
    Teacher: do u care about anything?
    Westside: no
    Teacher: your going to grow up thick do u care?
    Westside: thats enough I'm off......

    Maybe its time you slowed down WD.
    I wasn't having a go, just making an observation.
    Your posts are always entertaining(when I can make sense of them)

    You forgot to put in a full stop after the parentheses.

    that you never turned up for Maths class one time because you got the number on the door wrong.
