    Being a high school dropout as a result of learning disabilities, as yet unnamed when I quit in 1964, I could not read at any level that would be termed, "functional." Later, when I wanted to become a writer, it was explained to me that to be taken seriously, I must be able to spell. It was real work until I got my second computer, which had my first spell-checker. Give a spell-checker some time and it will teach you to spell. As the years go by, fewer and fewer of my red underlined words are other than typos.

    It is nice to see, unlike another poster I can think of, some people will think it worthwhile to give a little effort to not appear...well... Let's just leave that hanging. Though the effort, as has been said, is for yourself, the appreciation of others is not without some considerable value. Thanks.

      It wasn't the spell checker that did the work; it was you. Just clicking on the red line and choosing to correct the error will do nothing for you, but taking the time to understand what the mistake was shows nothing but effort and determination on your part.

          Random for sure, but this kid has style. You make it out to Oregon Iowa I'd be glad to show you a few nice courses, no spelling required.

            I was actually trying to be a bit of a dick with my first post on here. I am a bit of a stickler? when it comes to spelling and grammar mistakes. I am glad that Iowa took mine and others posts and contructive criticism. He sounds like a good kid, but his spelling sucks. I hope he does take our words of encouragement and work on that part of his life too. sounds like he has the disc golf and Karma parts down

              I was up there a few years ago(pre disc golf addiction) by the Quinault lake area. It is really nice up there. I hope to go back sometime in the near future and play some disc.

                  Yeah, kudos, Iowa. Very few people actually make an effort to clean up their sloppy on-line writing. Obviously you're capable of writing normal English, it just seems you didn't realize the poor impression it made.

                      You can't, you'd have to have an admin do it.
