    Smiley 4 Spell Check - USE it!

    People, c'mon! Use Spell Check to check your messages! It is so simple to use that it is criminal NOT to use it! When posting, there is a button, on top right of where you type, that has a check mark with ABC above it! Click on it BEFORE submitting your post! If you don't have Spell Check installed it is FREE here: IE Spell Check Download.



    I mean when you post a post with almost everything misspelled, you look bad and your arguments can, easily, be discounted due to it! It just looks bad! We want to provide a better site to the world and not make people think all truckers are stupid or something! Heck, some posts I have seen would make a non-trucker look at them and say WOW...truckers sure can't spell!

    I simply expect better from The Truckers' Report members...as they ARE better! Just a friendly reminder, people. I want you all to look the best and I want your posts to NOT be taken lightly due to simple, goofy spelling. PLEASE show the world YOU are smart enough to get your spelling RIGHT! You will make MUCH more of an impact on your world AND get more respect because you TRY harder!

    BAD:

    I am a truker. Help me. I nead to finde a good companie. See how bad this luks? I meen peopl will see this and thenk is this dood an idiot? How can I maek peopl see what I want whan I cant even speel right?
    GOOD (AFTER a Spell Check):

    I am a trucker. Help me. I need to find a good company. See how bad this looks? I mean people will see this and think is this dude an idiot? How can I make people see what I want when I cant even spell right?

    That is good advise
    I use it on every post, being that I cant spell worth a crap
    Problem I run into is, some of the words I type before editing with spell check are so far off that even spell check cant figure it out LOL

    Also Obama is spelled wrong according to spell check
    That should say something!!!!!

    OK one more thing I use Microsoft's latest browser. It does not recognize the ABC check on our tool bar
    It can be found in the tool bar on the top of your explorer browser, once its down loaded
    Just follow the directions when loading

    True, Spell Check isn't perfect and it DOES miss some things. But, better than nothing, LOL. I use IE 7 and it works fine. I haven't tried IE 8 yet, is that what you are using and how do you like it if so?

    Firefox will tell you as you type when a word might be misspelled. I know it's trivial, but spelling and punctuation, along with proper grammar are a thing with me. I have been known as the Resident Spelling Nazi in some circles. Some things I just can't help.

    So when they misspell they look stupid and their posts not worth consideration . You want them to use spellcheck and deceive us ? Just let them be themselves .
