A Good Point

Something I just read at the Ask Greg webpage (Greg being Greg Weisman, one of the original exec producers of Gargoyles, and the guy who had this huge story plotted out for it and spinoffs...before Goliath Chronicles butchered everything).

He responding to a question from a Lord Sloth (Dk should find that amusing), and what he asked wasn't important, since it isn't answered, and Greg ends up responding to Sloth's comment on how he knows his spelling is bad, and apologises for it. So, without further ado...

---------------------------------------------------
If you know that your spelling sucks then why not do something about it. Get a dictionary and keep it by your computer. Sloth, I don't mean to be mean, but I'm an ex-teacher. And you're never going to improve if you insist on letting it slide. I'm not saying I never have a typo or other errors, but the percentage in your posts is kinda horrifying.

And relying on computerized spell-checks is dangerous. I once assigned an essay to my students asking them "What They Hoped to Get Out of their College Educations?"

I received multiple papers back that went on and on about what they hoped to get out of their COLLAGE educations. Collage being a real word that their spell-checkers recognized they never noticed that they had spelled it wrong.

USE A DICTIONARY, MAN!!

For starters, when words are spelled correctly, there are fewer distractions and fewer excuses for a guy like me to dodge the actual question you were trying to ask.
