OP:You have less than 500 posts, which means I don't give a stuff what you think*.

*Which is a good job, because otherwise I'd be making a fool of you. Grow up.

This is a site that mainly consists of adults. So when people see someone making a post like this "LOL! I DNO BT DAT WA GD" Then action needs to be taken for the good of the person making the aforementioned post. If they are not bullied into learning how to use the spell checker provided then they will forever have the typing skills of a 12 year old girl texting her 20 year old boyfriend.


Oh and cry me a river, you enormous queen.

Unfortunately it does not correct the difference between 'there' and 'they're'.

Didn't you know that?


U MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD?

Personally pointing out one's errors is the only way to teach some people. I don't believe in pushing the point until the said individual feels uncomfortable but errors must be highlighted to enable learning.

Turn off the autocorrect function on word!

You call youself 'bigjohn' and I'm the 'enormous queen'. Ok 'BIG JOHN' !!


Yes you are the enormous queen.

As you can from your responses see there is no shortage of posters ready to bully, take the pee, tell you how unimportant your post is or say anything else to make themselves feel bigger at your expense.

It's more aiding their learning as opposed to bullying.

You don't see english teachers being accused of bullying every day because they've corrected some errors.

Are they allowed to correct errors these days? I'm sure my Sister said her kid's school doesn't.

I do agree but there are some who push rather than guide.
#14
did you spell like wrong on purpose, so someone can pick up on it and that would be youre point proven ??
#15
I hardly think comparing physical disabilities with being lazy and thick are hardly the same thing. Band wagon is one word btw. Even if you can't spell (which any adult should be able to do), type the word into google and it does the work for you.

No, you're an enormous *** head.

From seeing your posts in numerous different threads it is obvious that you are a frustrated and angry little person. It seems the only way you can deal with life is to sit at your computer and search for anyone you see as slightly vulnerable and then attack them with nasty and vicious comments.
It seems to me the only reason you entered this thread is to bully the op. You really need to go somewhere for help or at least try and achieve some kind of maturity.

I agree, some spelling on here is horrendous. What's the education system coming to when people can't even spell simple words? Long complicated ones i can forgive, but not very simple spellings that even a child should be able to do.

Then there are the people that have "brought a box of corn flakes", surely it's obvious that there is no r in it when you say it out loud "BOUGHT".

It's not hard to put a little extra time into your posts to make sure that they are right, even if you need to use a spell checker.

These are extracts (my bold just to make it clear that I think we should actually be polite one to another) from the code of conduct. Bullying should be reported, but, of course, one man's bully is another man's plain speaker and the 'they are bullying me' option is one used by some for other reasons.

Trolls are people who for no reason want to disrupt a forum topic by constantly posting out of context posts, derogatory comments, throwing insults, making personal attacks and deliberately inciting a negative response from other members. This is called trolling; in public forums and won't be tolerated here.
* Users or groups of users who continue to attack other members because of their views and opinions, attempting to beat them down or demean them, will have posts deleted and may be banned.

V. Profanities, Foul Language, Rudeness:
[COLOR="Red"]* Please be polite to your fellow members at all times.[/COLOR]

VI. Reporting Offending Posts:
Members have the ability to report posts made by others if they think any of the rules have been broken and we thank you for using this feature.
* A report button is placed to the left of every post in the form of a red triangle in a white background and containing an exclamation mark.
* Reported posts will notify Admin and Moderators of the offending post. Please include a brief description and links with your report.
* Do not reply to an offending post, leave it to Admin and Moderators who will deal with the situation as soon as possible.


I must say that I make a lot of typos but do try to correct them. I think that what annoys some people is when a member cannot even be bothered to try to use adequate English. I am not fond of text -speak.

Just checked the thread that the OP is complaining about. I couldn't really see any bullying there, has to be the tamest pointing out of spelling/grammar anywhere.

You can't compare a very poor grasp of the English language to a physical disability unless the person is dyslexic or has other learning difficulties. Everyone is taught the correct use of grammar from 4 onwards, it's laziness or stupidity to be consistently bad at it and if you're going to try to be taken seriously on a forum (or anywhere in life) then you should make a little effort or expect ridicule.

Why should anyone expect ridicule?

I didn't think this website was a school for frustrated teachers but was instead dedicated to saving money through deals.

Southwell65, I think the posts in there were at an acceptable level; not ones I would make but then I'm a goody two-shoes ( usually :oops:).

Why should you "expect ridicule" for a spelling or grammatical error in a forum for identifying deals. I couldn't care less is the deal was full of errors. I only ask myself one question:

Is that a good deal? Too many people on here who love to run their mouth/keyboard off whose only contributions seem to be the ability to be pedantic and rude. Who says that it is our place to "teach anyone" or "aid their learning"?

Very true but I was just sitting with a friend who has little experience of the Internet and they were surprised at the way some people make it their mission in life to put others right.

I explained that it's the norm and posted this.

Great to see so many turn up to keep me right. My thoughts go out to 'bigjohn' for his thoughtful replies, cheers big lad.

Everyone makes typos, but weak spelling and bad grammar can be an indication of poor education / retardation / being northern.

You are half right.

This bit:

[COLOR="Red"]"search for anyone you see as slightly vulnerable and then attack them with nasty and vicious comments."[/COLOR]

Is correct - however your reasoning is slightly wrong. let me help with it. I do it because its funny to laugh at people less fortunate/rich/clever than myself. Thats all.

I realise you will argue the toss about this, you will claim xyz about me, despite not having a clue about me, and making yourself look a bit of an ass in the process. Then I'll come back, tell the truth, and the cycle will continue.

Sorry if this doesn't fit with your views, but it is, indeed, the truth.

No, if you're just posting a deal or saying thank you etc then no you shouldn't expect ridicule (no harm in pulling someone up on it mind), it's those that want to get involved in a debate on something. It undermines their ability to come across as intelligent and someone who's opinion you should respect in that debate.

You should always be learning in life, unfortunately you stop being taught by professionals after school/college/uni so who is left to pick you up on mistakes?

borolad borolad, I used to rip it out of you, and then everyone else joined in as well, mainly because you were extremely immature and a bit of a muppet. But because you were young, I left them to it.

Should i join in again? Remember what happened last time young'un.
