    Very easy. I've seen things like that before.

    This was just posted in the last month or two.

    And yes, I can read it, but it slows my reading pace WAY down. Just because it can be read doesn't make it correct. Spelling, grammar, and punctuation guidelines are in place for a reason.

    I completely misssed that thread. funny thing though, on that thread someone also posted that it had already been posted before. I guess this paragraph brings the need to say 'we've already seen this' in folks! :)

    poodlehead wrote in the other thread:
    I thought someone else posted something similar, oh, a while back, and the percentage was much higher, because the brain is capable of substituting the correct word, as long as it starts with the right letter.

    PH is also obsessive about grammar I believe.

    R U not PH// ;)

    I could read it, and almost as easily as I can read anything normal. I do declare, I'm special.
