If, when you are reading a hub and you notice spelling and/or grammatical errors, should you politely tell the hubber, thinking they may be unaware? Or should you just keep it to yourself?

Very well stated. I like how you explained it. Thank you.
I am the same way. I would like to be given a "heads up" if someone spots an error, so I can fix it. Maybe some people would take offense. Thanks, we think alike!
I, too, would like to know when there is an error because mine are the only eyes that see it before it is published and after a while, they do not always see mistakes. Think your suggestion of a private email is the best way to go.
completely agree, people today have gotten to be so touchy about their writing that it could put them on a emotional roller coaster.Confidence is key. Thumps up Jack.
I know what you mean, personally if it happened to me I wouldn't be affected but depending on how they wrote it, it may seem their just posting to seem clever or to boost their ego.
Very true. I agree with you. This is the best way to convey.
I would really appreciate it as one reason I am here is to learn. I just noticed a spelling error that should have been obvious but I have breezed over it several times. No one has ever mentioned it to me but I´m sure it has been noticed.
I realize some are sensitve about their writing, but I hope that most people would take it in the manner in which it is intended and that is, just to bring it to their attention, so they can make the correction before too many others read it.
I don't think I'd offer corrections to a total stranger. Yes, when bad writers are left to their own devices it can hurt the whole ship, but I prefer to worry about my own proofreading. Perhaps I'm the sensitive one. :)
