Am I the only one who gets annoyed trying to read hubs from people who can't pass English class? Why don't they use Microsoft works or some other word processing program? The come free with Windows.
Glad you fixed the spelling error, I really didn't want to be the one to tell you. However, I love your sense of humor!!
By the way, they do NOT come free with Windows. You may have bought a computer that included them, but they were not "free".
What does come free is Wordpad, but that doesn't include spelling correction.
Mac includes TexTedit, which DOES have spelling correction. Yet another reason to use Mac..
It is sometimes difficult to read hubs in which the English is not grammatically correct but it seems to me that some hubbers have English as a second language so I try to make allowances. Not everyone has had good tuition in English, through no fault of his/her own and some people still manage to get the point across well. However, when it's obvious that someone has not bothered to proof-read, that's a different kettle of fish altogether! I'm usually a purist but tolerance is important too.
Yes, that was funny. Can I copy and paste on forums? I still need my spellcheck.
You can copy and paste (your own material). I am using Google Chrome, which has built-in spell check that even works with forum posts.
I recently purchased a laptop and though it does not come with a lot of the office programs, it does come with a basic Word starter program that includes spell check. There are also online spell checkers and grammar checkers. I've never used one personally but have heard good things.

Is it rude to point out grammar/spelling mistakes on hubs via comments?I've come across numerous hubs that have grammar and spelling errors, some minor and some littered with mistakes. Otherwise, these hubs would be interesting and will written in my opinion. Is it rude to point out these mistakes...

Does anyone ever check the English composition of our Hubs for good grammar, correct word usage,...and the spelling of words. I just read a Hub by a new chum. No names no court martials. The writer rated 91 on this Hub which, quite frankly, I thought was certainly...

Yes, I am a new "hubber." I am also a new writer. It has only been a few months since discovering I really enjoy writing on HubPages. My problem is, since I started writing on HubPages I have been a bit, let's just say, OCD when it comes to my spelling and grammar. Before I hit the...

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?

"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...

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...
