How anal are you. . . .

  1. . . . with regards to editing the posts you place on this and other bulletin boards?

    I'm not talking about erasing regrettble comments. To this I say. . . let it go. . . .

    I'm talking about correcting grammatical and spelling errors.

    I find my self reading and reading my posts. . . to check for these types of annoying grammatical and spelling mistakes. I may edit a post or two, or three, or even four times until no more mistakes are found (hopefully!). Gosh! I'm anal! (No pun intended!) Am I the only one who does this? Or are there other "tightly anal-rententive" people out there who edits, re-edits and re-edits some more?!?!?!?!?

    Heck. . . I don't even know if I'm spelling the word "Grammatical" correctly?????? Can someone help me out??? Is this word spelled correctly? Are there any misspelled words in this post??? Is the word "Misspelled" spelled correctly????? My butt-hole is tight and needs a little relaxation which can only be achieved when each and every word is spelled correctly!!!!!

    Who's with me on this one? Or is my butt-hole the only one that can crush a walnut shell???

    Cheers to you!

    Ted

    P. S. This post has been edited for grammer and spelling. . . .

    Cool! Thanks!

    P. S. Barbara. . . You spelled my name with "T" in a lower case. . . Just thought I'd point that out. . . .

    Yes, Ted, I will admit to correcting typos if/when I see them. I also find myself wanting to correct other posts...but then I stop myself and get on with my life.

    Seriously, man. When do we get to stop talking about Ted's ass?


    In response to the question, I'm pretty obsessive about cleaning up my grammar and spelling. I will often edit if I catch mistakes after posting. To me, the the quality and content of the message is as important as the message itself. Plus, it's the only way people get to know you on a BB, so I like my posts to be (relatively) neat and tidy and coherent.

    Relatively.

    Depends on the thread.
    In the more serious threads I tend to be more anal.

    On funny threads I don't pay attention as much.

    Personally, I don't mind talk of Ted's bun bun.

    anyone who has seen me post knows not anal enough. i don't punctuate or spell correctly. but the message is what i wish it to be. hey, i am not writing a manuscript or paper for grad school or anything after all...i am sure you will forgive me.

    I tend to be pretty anal about spelling, but not always about capitalization. Ted, I think your a$$ sphincter would beat mine in a walnut shell crushing competition.
