Yes, spelling is important.

There is a "spell checker" on the "Reply to Topic" but there is not one on the "Quick Reply." It only takes a couple of seconds to check the spelling but may take several to edit your post to correct them later when you discover them. Roy provides us many wonderful tools--let's all use them.

Okay boys, lets tame it please. Curt and snide remarks are not necessary, nor do they produce fruit.

I had an estimate last week where the roofer was proposing to replace the current roof with "3-TAP SHINGERS".

My favorite estimate was written in 1967. The contractor was replacing "sheeprock", replacing all damaged "stybs" (studs) and the estimate had to be signed by a "notary republic". I still have the estimate. I also have a letter from an Air Force officer in England that gave me permission to "attack his wife in San Antonio". He later sent me another letter thanking me for not taking him up. He said he meant to say "contact his wife".

I have spoken to some adjusters that are now using the "you talk it types" computer software to complete reports. They say this software saves them a lot of time but does have its draw backs. The software will not recognize every spoken word the way you intend for it to be typed. After completing the report draft you must proofread and spell check to find these miss recognized words. The adjusters I spoke to still feel this is a time saver over typing out complete reports. Personaly I don't believe the time savings would make up for all the potential mistakes that proofreading and spell check will miss.

Some need to reread their own posts before they make fun of otherís spelling and grammar.

From my question raised concerning 'chat room lingo' in the "Tablet PC" thread, I thank DG for a reply and Wes for the link. My further comments are best suited here.

Reviewing the "chat lingo" found in the link, it is very clear to me now why the generation behind me (well maybe it's 1 1/2 of them), can not write a sentence or spell with any clarity.

Is life such a rush and a commotion that people have to abbreviate a sentence into a word, or a word into a letter? The last year that I saw Pitman Shorthand used was in 1969, and it was the Dictaphone that made Delores's mother obsolete at the office. And, that was just a private code amongst the stenographic armies of the office world, that later turned those scribbles into fine prose.

Wes's point with regards to body language being expressed through personal communication is valid, and noted. In that regard I do see some value to some of the "smileys" noted in the link. But again, written communication is capable of expressing emotion; we have seen many lesser illustrations of that in this website.

But, as I ponder whether I should consider adopting this new 'greet and scratch' style (geez, right away I'm wrong - I'd have to scratch to create the greet), my mind wanders of its applicability when I'm on some foreign beach. I picture myself plunked down into the sand, with my tablet and chalk, watching the Miss All Legs walk by wearing those How Low Jeans (I guess it is a dream - that vision should come from the mall), okay so now they are all wearing the medium weight dental floss; so do I quickly scribble onto my tablet 0:-) :-{} :-9 ^ :-& hold that up and give a nice smile? Seems simpler, with a lot less to remember, to just match the stride; and come out with a "how you doing?"
