    What is the polite way to let a hubber know about major spelling and grammar errors on their hub?

    I've discovered the occasional ones in mine after publishing while tired, and was happy to know no one gave a down thumb before I could fix it. I've seen some hubs that were much, much worse, but felt funny sending a personal message.

    As the Nike ad says, "Just do it!"   You can say that your hub is very good; however, it would be much better if you do the following things e.g.  make judicious use of a dictionary and/or a grammar book to make your hubs run more smoothly and look more professional.

    I suggest mentioning Hub Article errors privately, through the contact button. I always appreciate people alerting me of spelling errors and pointing out where, in a Hub, the error is.

    Using a personal message is better than posting on a Hub. I have found that most; almost all people that I have messaged about errors have been thankful for my pointing it out. If someone takes offense to it, well...what can I say?

    I agree with J.S.Matthew that notification should be done by PM and in a polite manner. I appreciate being told about my errors, especially spelling errors.
    However  some words are spelled differently in other cultures such as 'center' and 'centre' as it is spelt in Australia!
