    Not to sound like I'm looking for an argument but why not start a thread HELPING others with their mistakes?
    Most people aren't aware they're making them.
    I've seen these threads time and time again, with nobody actually doing anything positive about it, only criticising.
    You could even start a section for those who are completely grammar illiterate, help them with letters or job applications?
    It's just a suggestion, it's not going to get better if nobody offers the help that is needed.

    Isn't that what the counselling one was all about? And that is much like this one isn't it?

    Just do a search on the word counselling. Starts off with the correct spelling and branches from there to correct word spelling and grammar. Was going side by side with this one.

    If poor spellers read these threads they might just learn a thing or two. In fact I actually learned something new in the spelling and grammar vent thread a while back.

    Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Correcting people is considered rude, pointing out errors is rude... Most people who make spelling errors simply don't care and don't wish to be corrected
