    Just because you're not in english class doesn't mean you don't have to use your own language properly.

    Spelling is a good starting point. You can advance to constructing proper sentences after you get the hang of constructing words.

    So you are agreeing that i should spell correctly. then i suppose i will. now that that is settled, what shall we speak of so this thread gets relieved of its misery? :eyebrow:
  5. I hate to bust the conspiracy, but this can't be Ben...he's at work today.

    What the hell have i been telling you this whole time!!!!
  7. Of course, he may have internet access at work....I just doubt anyone's supervisor would appreciate them fuddling around on the internet when they should be selling crap.

  8. Maybe Ben cloned himself.

    this is asking too much

  12. I'd agree with the above, i'm a maths student myself but still can't stand people who can't be bothered to speak or write correctly. You wouldn't write like that on your CV (or you wouldn't if you wanted to get a job), so why do it elsewhere. A few spelling mistakes are fine, everyone makes mistakes, and forums aren't really about spelling, but people should still make an effort to use coherent sentences.

    On the subject of spelling and grammar, I would recommend people read Eats, Shoots & Leaves. Fantastic book.

    You can spell however you want... but people will (unconsciously, at least) judge your intelligence on it.

    Well, that's just rude.
