    I have noticed this a few times with my own posts, you write something down, read it, check the spelling, read it again post it then when you see it posted the spelling is wrong or does not read well:Doh:
    Is it an age thing? me not taking care or jim messing with the text, anyway as it said in my 1960 school report Stephen try's hard but could do better... Bitch!
    but iam still trying, the wife says at times very trying.:RollEyes:

    It's a forum law similar to Sod's... you only see the typos after you've published:BigGrin:

    No I think you are right, it's Jim messing with our minds. Recent examples from my posts-
    I typed
    From- turned into forum
    Brian - turned into brain
    Hear - turned into here
    Off always turns into of!

    Have you not got automatic spell checking - Firefox has for free. Of course that can catch you out, like clinking insurgence instead of insurance but mostly it's verry gud.

    I ( nearly ) always read the preview, that's a big help.

    I think a few typos adds a little character to a post. :BigGrin: sometimes just in the wrong order :Rofl1:

    Don't forget you can also go back to edit your post for some time after you have posted it, not sure how long you get to do that but it does help.

    But then again, I'm thinking the more typos the funnier the post can be. :Rofl1:

    They're the right letters, just in the wrong order! :Laughing:

    I write lots of emails as part of my job, yesterday I wrote a nice long one and read it through before sending it. Then I read it again after having sent it and spotted words missing where I'd edited a couple of lines. How did I miss them the first read through?! No idea. Too late anyway :Laughing:

    I blame my fingers, they don't always do what my brain tells them.

    I agree - reading the preview really does help.
