    Brilliant, this is exactly the attitude of the M$ idiots that wrote the lexicon for the spelling checker - only the USA uses the US spelling, the rest of the English speaking world uses UK English with some regional variations e.g. Australia, and not forgetting India where around 1,200,000,000 people use it as the official second language and the only common one across all states.

    I've learned not to get annoyed when someone uses the phrase "get your panties in a bunch" for the 400,000,000th time on the Internet...the least people can do in return is allow me to talk about grammatical errors that bug me. :lol:

    I am a pretty fair speller. It's punctuation that slaps me silly.

    As long as people know what you mean, then spelling isn't that important. language is a communicative tool not an exam. Always think "When I slavishly correct other peoples spelling mistakes or grammar it tells people more about me, than them." ;)

    All this makes me wonder... who was the first man to read something, and who wrote it for him?

    Sign at the main entrance to the university where I graduated. "Progress Thru Knowledge." It stood that way all the way thru my 4 years:lol:

    I would say loss of credibility for sure:!:

    On the other hand, It was a great school with an excelent English department.

    There's woman I see from time to time driving with a license plate saying "honasty". Maybe it's supposed to be "honesty". Or, at least I hope so.
