Do hubs with spelling errors make you think less of a hub?


Is anyone else distracted by a hub that has decent content but several spelling errors or grammatical errors?

    Thank you so much for your insight. I agree that one mistake here and there will not stop me from reading a hub but it's the consistent misspelling of simple words that I cannot move on from and like you, I immediately have to stop reading it.

    Ha ha, it's dismaying to know that people who themselves don't know English are allowed to grade others on their English usage.

    I agree structure and content are just as important as the spelling and grammar in a hub. We are all here to communicate some type of message and we should all be equipped to do so when we are here!

    Thanks for the great response, I could not agree more! I wonder so many things but especially how a person cannot at least do a proofread or spell check before posting.

    Thank you Jim. I don't profess to be an expert on any level, but a few different hubs lately had me confused as to how they were even published and it got me thinking how others felt about this.

    Thanks much sleepylog

    It is a great idea for people who aren't the best at spelling and grammar to seek out help before publishing. :)

    Yes, I definitely agree. I am glad several people are giving me their thoughts on this as it has been bothering me.

    Understanding is always in order and with understanding leads to forgiveness for unintended mistakes.

    I am finding it difficult to get past simple mistakes, for example: not knowing which their, there, they're to use or to and too. Sigh.

    Thanks Lil Ms KnowItAll, It is very distracting anywhere your eye catches the typos or grammatical errors. Sometimes when I am reading our local newspaper I wonder, did anyone edit this?

    Thanks duffsmom, I agree that my biggest issue is the simple word forms that , if you are going to be a writer out in public, should be able to know the difference in spellings and meanings of some words such as to/too/two and they're/there/their.

    Thanks Larry.

    I can see you work extra hard to catch mistakes and no one is perfect, even the best speller and English major make mistakes. To me, the most irritating mistakes are the simple words as I have stated in other comments. Thanks!

    Hey Tony

    Thanks much for your thoughts. Interesting on the spell checker, I have had decent luck with those programs but when all else fails, the good ol' dictionary works great.
