Are you ever tempted to correct some one else's spelling errors??
Sometimes I just leave a comment that has the correct spelling of the word they used in error-- some people get it, some don't. I don't try to be the typo or spelling police-- I make too many mistakes, myself. Feel free to point mine out.
No, but I'm always happy for someone to correct mine - grammar too!
someone* : )
I'm often tempted to correct spelling and appreciate it when someone corrects me. It's just how we learn and improve.
wkhigley - awesome!! I was wondering if anyone was going to get that
I have to admit that although I don't take the step to correct anything in a comment, it completely blows my mind the number of simple grammatical, punctuation and spelling errors that are rampant in hubs. I understand that it is easy to do - I often re-read my hubs even after publishing them and spot an error. It is clear that some people are too anxious to press "publish" when they should be proof reading or having someone else do it for them.
I've been on the Internet too long: the general level of spelling and punctuation is so low, and has been for so long, that I think I've become immune to it. Besides, having good 'penmanship' sets you apart from the crowd. Amiright?
The only thing that still gives me facial tics is the use of 'ect'. What.The.*
Yes, I am tempted and (someone) needs to proof their work before pushing publish. I will usually let them know, especially if it changes the meaning of the sentence. I am a spelling whiz and if you find a misspell in mine, it is usually a typo. Grammar, I am not so good on but I try.
I've noticed that many on HubPages let others know if they've misspelled something. I know I welcome it if I spell something wrong. I usually read over my hubs a couple times before publishing to catch it but sometime's I don't see a misspell.

"one should always aim at being interesting rather than exact" -VOLTAIREYes, i know that checking your spelling and grammer make for a better hub score, but is anyone else sick of other hubbers who you arent familiar with commenting on your page that you misspelled something? Lets chat...

Would you prefer other hubbers notify you of spelling errors or not?We all make mistakes from time to time so where do you stand on this?Would it offend you? Would you be thankful?

Happy Thursday, everyone! In August we pre-announced a new tool that fixes common spelling and grammatical errors across the site. Today, Editbot, the first iteration of the tool, is live on a small percentage of Hubs and their comments. It will be gradually rolled out to all Hubs over the next...

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?
by Cory Zacharia 9 years ago
Sometimes (or let's say, often), when I see a spelling error in an otherwise perfect hub, I feel inclined, with the best of intentions, to write to the author and point out the glitch, but don't do so out of fear of offending.I'm curious to know what others think. Would you be bothered if a fellow...

Do grammatical errors or spelling errors in our comments on HubPages hurt us somehow?Does it somehow hurt our Hubs or scores, rankings, etc, if there are comments from others with misspellings or grammatical errors? I have heard of others commenting in some forums about even deleting such...
