I was going to get an ACME Grammar Checker, for those rare grammar or spelling faux pas, but why bother when I can just come on here. It’s faster.
Everyone makes typos. Everyone misspells words , except my ex "old school" secretary wife. She did it when women were proud to be secretaries and did perfect work. No word processors or auto-correct.
The stuff I see on here are "you should know better at your age" mistakes like their/there/they're, etc. Other mistakes are like hear/here , amatuer/amature, your/you're, not understanding paragraph use, or others like misuse of quotation marks. Truthfully, these are not grammar Nazi corrections but "if you're going to post messages on forums, you need to proof read".
My wife proof reads my important email or letters for grammar and punctuation, and I edit hers for brevity of content. Typically I take one of her two page screeds and compress it into two to three paragraphs.
A full 60% of the posts here have spelling or grammatical errors. The other half have math errors.
