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.

I have several Pastor friends. I have had several pastors in the last 30 years. I have come to realize that the expectations we place on them professionally and personally are unfair and unrealistic and I have seen it discourage and wound many a pastor and his family. I am suggesting I guess that...

I thought long and hard how to title this post. Basically, I read a Hub a few minutes ago (not a new one) by a Hubber whom I respect and admire but was embarrassed for them by the number of inaccuracies in their Hub. I am sure they believe what they wrote is fact but they have clearly never visited...

Hey all,I have an idea..I'm not sure how relevant or useful it would be to most people, but what if somehow we are given the ability to allow another hubber to take responsibility and ownership of another hubber's article?The reason I ask this is that I've asked several people to pitch me ideas for...
