Separate names with a comma.

The same could be said for those who are annoyed by being corrected.
Typos I can understand, but recently there was a thread here with "capacitor's" in the title, where the word was meant to be plural. Is it that obscure that -'s is possessive and -s is plural?
Thanks for that TD. I had a person correct me on the temperature here. It was 98.6F and I , being a poor typist, typed 9.6F. Some " kind " person pointed out my error to which I responded that I was a terrible typist. I do know my Maths, I do know Electronics ( I used to lecture both at College level).
So , thank you to all those who want to point out my foibles, i hope you feel superior or whatever.
I have noticed it has only been recent on this forum. Originally we all used to be guitar geeks and part of the rules are not to deliberately anger nor put-down other members..

Well said TT.
Wouldn't you like to say something, well more, while you're here? What, oh he did didn't he? My companion just pointed out you gave us an update on the post count for the thread. Now that's something constructive for a change! Did you take up vaping?
Your completely write about the hole grammer thing. Sew annoying!!!!
only on Mondays, the rest of the week i'm so tired from stressing my opinions!
I dont rite too good so I says it in pitures
Did you get any takers nibbling on this one?
One, someone often corrects me on that one. I often make the same mistake but am slowly learning.
I collect stuff too TD, what do you collect?....
Thanks for your concern and kind wishes.
A man of few words, but a poet nonetheless.
, good morning!
Good morning to you sir! It's a beautiful sun shiny day here in the B-town. We'll be heading out to play golf after a bit, supposed to be 56 degrees today, a little cool, but the sunshine makes it quite doable.
I have a prized navel lint collection! I'm a pretty serious collector, but you know, there's always someone else who's got a bigger one! Uh, what?
remember snow golfers have purple balls , stay warm my friend~
Fixed it for you!
I forgive you my son, I know that the demon embedded within those who would correct is powerful and you simply could not resist!
I'll jump in here at the risk of getting all flamed up...
I don't like seeing grammar & spelling errors...plain and simple. I believe proper spelling and grammar are the foundations of effective, clear communication. Much like when you get static on the radio trying to dial in a station, spelling and grammar errors are the equivalent for your eyes. They muddy up the conversation and make it rough for the reader/receiver to get a clear message.
IMO not caring about your spelling and grammar errors is basically saying you don't care if people get what you're trying to say. How many times have you read something you wrote, knew spelling and grammar errors existed within, and said "Ahhh, they know what I mean"?
So while it may not matter in the context of a message board such as this because it's mostly goofing around, to some, proper spelling and grammar matter because clear communication matters.
At least that's my take on it. I've given up trying to police word murderers online anymore, but I'll always cringe when I receive an email from a salesperson trying to earn business or my CEO with spelling errors in it. It's just not professional and it's a sure way to lose your audience.
