    Default Spelling and Grammar Vent Thread #2

    If you have gripes about spelling and grammar use this thread to vent - but first, please take the time to read what's written below.

    If you don't have gripes about spelling and grammar, don't read this thread

    ----

    I don't know about you, but for me spelling and grammar errors in posts are the equivalent of being repeatedly poked in the eye with a chopstick. There is, however, a time and a place for everything. Bub Hub is a parenting forum, not a professional writing forum, so I try to be patient with others' mistakes and don't correct them, for all it drives me bananas (without an apostrophe). Don't forget that everyone here has a different level of education, but we all deserve the right to ask questions, vent and network without being corrected. It would be sad if someone stopped using the Hub because they were made to feel 'dumb' because of their spelling and grammar.

    So why have this thread? I figure if you see something that irritates you, you get it off your chest here so you don't write it somewhere else where it's not appropriate!

    That's all

    I went to dracula's at the gold coast for dinner last night and they had a little blurb thing on their placemats which said 'leave your conservative pallet at the door'.

    I thought some of you might appreciate my horror a few minutes ago when I heard a radio DJ refer to Hugh Jackman's "self-depreciating" humour...

    I know, the horror! To think that they paid someone to write that, and here's me sitting at home just itching to do it free of charge .

    This is my latest find, I think it's one of the worst real estate gaffes I've seen yet (and that's saying something!).
