It was a compliment, don't worry!


A spin factory, you manufacture and distribute spin. In this case, you spun their condition into a positive.

You can also spin it the other way and make it a negative.


You are noble.

Now, would you like to come into my van?

Is there candy?

And thank you. Maybe my social skills aren't so bad after all. ;) I live by a simple motto. Not sure what it is, but it works.

No candy someone ate it all only fireworks and puppy's left.

I try not to be a spelling or grammer nazi but mostly because when I comes to bad english I'm a serial offender. Although recently I have tried to make sure it improves the spell check is sorely missed.

I actualy think its kind of respectless to completely ignore spelling. I mean, correcting minutae and details is one thing, but pointing out that punctuation and a semblance of grammar might be a good idea if you want to be taken seriously is quite another.

If you dont take the time to spell properly, people might take you for an imbecil or at the very least lazy. If you have a problem, such as Aspergers Syndrome or Dyslexia, then thats a whole different ballgame. Simply informing potential readers of this should be enough. But in my book there is no excuse for lazyness.

Now, I presume this is related to my translation of one of the OPs posts in another thread. That was intended more as a jest than a slight, and if I hit a nerve I can only apologize. It is one thing to be conscious of spelling, and another to be an ass. Sorry man, I didnt mean to hurt your feelings.

1. its a gaming forum there is no need to point out spelling
2. if you eva taken any science or maths class u will c everything is abreviated and unfortunatly thats the only classes i pay attention in so i have growen quite attatched to abreviation and not paying attention to spelling
sure if it was a forum on say shacksperes work or some great new novel then maybe i would pay attention to spelling

Well if you're allowed to type without even thinking about the spelling, then why would be not be allowed to correct you on it?
these "god dam spelling nazis" are usually just here to help you, but if you really hate it then just ignore their posts, rather then telling them to ignore yours.
