Is it considered disrespectful if you are reading thru a really good hub but you notice some typos to leave a private mail pointing this out?
Like the word "thru"? (I couldn't resist)
I don't normally point out typos to someone unless I know them pretty well. I don't find it disrepectful though if it's done in a nice manner and privately as you said.
The thing you have to remember about typos is that some are intentional for rankings and some are due to differences in locations (ie, UK honour, US honor).
Yeah, I actually typed out through and then deleted it for myself. I proof read for friends and I did not know how it was seen by the community. I do not see it as discipline at all. I feel that the article was good enough for me to take the time to read it and know that I often make typos on purpose and accidental myself. I would find an honor that someone actually took the time to care enough. So I am still unsure.
Each hubber is different so, unfortunately, many times we don't know until it happens. Some hubbers hate being corrected while others appreciate the heads up. I think the private email was a good way to go though
Please, if anyone sees typos, bad grammar, misspelled words, or anything else, please, by all means help me. There's nothing worse than going back over a hub, seeing a blatant error and seeing that numerous people have read it, as it is. I'm not a writer, but I want to be, and with help from this wonderful community I will be one day. Thanks to you all, and again feel free to correct me, in an email of course,
Thank you all for your responses. I have had that experience fastfreta. I have written articles that I though were perfect and polished to later come back and find to my dismay that I had a few typos that I was not aware of.
When I leave a message which it has only been twice. It is because the article is so good, I feel it is worth the time and the effort to correspond with the writer to point them out to them to let them consider and determine if they are true typos.
But, I wont stick my neck out to be misunderstood for bad writing. So if anyone gets this type of message from me please know it is only a compliment.
Thank you so much for helping me with this matter. I love hubpages.
