Is Spelling Really Important?

I have to admit, I am not the best when it comes to spelling and grammer. Below is a study from Cambridge University that shows it is possible to read an entire paragraph in which every word is misspelled or re-arranged.

O lny srmat poelpe can ra ed this.
I cdnuolt blveiee that I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in what oredr the ltteers in a word are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is that the first and last ltteer be in the rgh it pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the word as a wlohe. Amzanig huh?! Yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! If you can raed th is psas it on !!

Psas It ON !

Yes, spelling really is that important. We may be able to read and sometimes even understand what you're saying, but you still look like a dumbass.

Spelling correctly and using the correct words and sentence structure can usually be directly linked to how intelligent and coherent the poster is.

Can you imagine anyone intentionally mispelling the first word in a bitch thread about spelling? Your sarcasm detection abilities are not quite honed to perfection yet, but keep working on it. Here's another one explained more slowly for you this time....mispelled is misspelled in my first sentence above.

Better than that, I've seen it happen unintentionally many, many times.

You are easily the most self righteous person ever to post on this website. You honestly think you can do no wrong and have an answer for everything. We both know you fucked up in your initial post. Trying to play if off as if you did it intentionally is truly remarkable. Just admit you didn't check what your typed before you hit the submit button.


Call me dumb if you'd like, but your the one that looks like a moron.








Yeah, I did misuse the word 'your' intentionally.

I can't believe this is even an issue. It all depends on what class you are interested in becoming. I don't have any interest in being low class trash.

It is easy to have an an answer for anything a simpleton like you comes up with. This isn't rocket science, this is a bitch thread about spelling that is easy to manipulate for the sake of humor. If said humor is above your level of understanding, then I suppose you could be considered dumb (using your own self-description) in some circles.

Having an answer for everything is indeed a lofty goal. If you seriously think anybody on a car forum would attempt to achieve such, you truly are dumb (using your own self-description again).

Good thing for you that stupidity and simple-mindedness isn't a sin. Also, it is funny, and since the only one who seems obsessed and butthurt by my joke and continues to whine about it is you, that makes it even funnier.

Ooooooooooooorrrrrr, it could be that many other people have not had the pleasure of your arrogant, self serving posts since most don't post in the theology forum as often as I do and that is primarily where you like to put on your show.

Point is you are the only one whining in here, just like you do in said Theology Forum. This would indicate that you are just as stupid about understanding something as simple as smack as you are ignorant about theology.
