point is, if you're as intelligent as you claim to be, you don't need spellchecker, you know how to spell it right the first time....

This is not 100% true at all. That is comparable to saying if you're smart you'll never F-up. There are many smart people out there that make spelling errors, hence the use of spell checker. I, like you, consider myself good enough without using it, especially when I look at what some others are typing up. Oh, by the way, I'll get to your "spelling errors" in this posting in just a second.

Ok, so what we learned here is that your spelling is perfect 100% of the time(well not really, read on) and mine is 98.8%! Furthermore, to illustrate the "read on" piece of my arguement.....in the above quoted text exactly as I found it from you, where is your capitalization of the I not once, not twice not three times but FOUR times? That is just as bad if not worse than some spelling mistakes. Not only did you forget the rule to capitalize the first word of a sentence three times over, but you also forgot the rule where you capitalize the pronoun I also to include the word Im. Together, that makes four offenses. Hmm, sounds like the pot calling the kettle black to me. Spell checker also would have picked that up for you so I guess your trying to prove how good you are without it, and guess what, you just painted some more ass, LOL! I guess you should abopt the use of it after all, what do you think? Could we conclude from this that no matter how smart we all think we are, we all screw up?

There you go again, no capitalization on sentences twice in a row!!!and here you are trying to make ME look stupid! I am sure I am guilty of this too, so dont waist your time finding where I have done it. I can admit it. I am making this point because of your cocky statement why don't you go ahead and figure out the percentage on my posts? same as yours--no proofreading or spell checking applied...

Right there thats two sentences not capitalized, and I wont count the Is. Point made! So, in argument to you trying to paint me as an idiot, whos the one with a shinny ass now?

I have no formal qualifications but am confident that the wonders of CF have improved mt spelling and grammer no end. We all make silly mistakes from time to time, even "brainiacs" lol.

I have enjoyed reading the bickering in posts in the R&M section of late, and have followed with interest, some of the more adventurous type-styles that we would expect to encounter. I have also obseved that some of cmeseadoin's "lingo" and "wording" kind of contradics the seemingly obvious spelling errors he makes, lol....Still, we're not the spelling police. Keep up the good work guys.

Cliffy, where have you been hanging out? I agree with everything you said and I am glad we've been able to humor you. Are you confessing to us that YOU of all people are not perfect? NEVER THAT!

what's a "shinny" ass, dumbass? i personally don't want anyone shinnying up my ass.... i'm sure yours must be shiny by now... you're noticing the capitalization on 4 sentences? look at all of them! i deem capitalization unnecessary on forums for the most part unless it's needed for clarification or emphasis... re: your "ain't"---that is my choice not to capitalize... take another shot... i'm not saying smart people never f*ck up, i'm just saying they don't make dumb mistakes like you do...

Oh, look at you, the pot calling the kettle black again! YOU deem capitalization unnecessary huh? Well, I guess you're so smart and better than the rest that you can just change the laws of proper sentence structure and have the rest of us bending over for you? I deem spell checker unnecessary. How about that!!?? Get over yourself ahole! You're a JOKE!

Where have I been hanging out? I've been here the whole time, lol. I must admit, although I don't agree with all what you type (that was a slight pun by the way..albeit a lame one, lol). I indeed, am saying that I'm not perfect.

I must admit that I do tend to see a "pot, kettle, black" thing going on around here, lol...Especially given that by rights your username should be capitalised also, lol....JK...I think. I also think that you guys BOTH (well, the whole of the USA actually) need eductaing as far as inserting "Z" in place of "S" goes in numerous words. As I said though, we're not the Spelling Police, lol.
