    That post, this thread is as you could plainly see....is 4 years old....and yes it was "code"! It was a reference to OBGYN and another poster we were picking on for intentionally using the "Y" and not the "K" in a different thread!

    Also...the RED PENCIL had not been conceived yet....that came into being about a year later...we here on TTR had a member who had magical posts, Southern Pride, he had misspelled words, poor at best if ever punctuated, rarely capitalized, never separated paragraphs....but if you just took the time to read and find the genius, it was absolutely amazing. One day, some hooligan decided to rip into SP, criticize every grammatical error, and finally belittle SP in print. This attack really set me off, and in that attacker's tirade, there was spelling, punctuation, and grammar mistakes....horrible mistakes, and not typos either, they were obvious and blatant! I quoted his "script" and highlighted every mistake in bold red, and basically gave a basic class in grammar and proof reading, also finished up with giving him a "new to use" "poop chute"! In a weak attempt to redeem himself, he came back with a lame attempt at offering his "college degree" in English or Journalism....which again he didn't capitalize the proper nouns within his degree title, and other grammar and spelling errors....which I again jumped on. Thought sure I was going to get a vacation for my posts and "attacking a poster, not the post"...but the true subject was Southern Pride, and SP was well loved and respected...it was MT that gave me the "moniker" of "TTR's English Grammar Professor", and I actually got a PM from Southern Pride, many actually, the first was thanking me for defending him against this low life, the others were questions of spelling, grammar, and punctuation...he would send me his thoughts and asked me to proof read them before he posted them...I was honored, a man with so much knowledge, so much experience...he became a great friend, however, I did not get the opportunity to travel down to his location to meet him before he died...God Rest His Soul!!!

    Otter, as usual, has brought up a good point, and one of the reasons why I get so angry when people criticize others for their lack of spelling skills.
    Just because someone can't spell good doesn't make them dumb.....like Otter said, you get past the spelling there can be some genius there. I have known people who were highly educated that didn't have sense enough to pour piss out of a boot with the instructions printed on the heel. One should never be judged by there spelling....NEVER.

    Well said, I catch lots of typos in my post ! Think most are from this touch screen keypad . Keys on the left side do not read each time, and throw in big fingers ! Some it's not IQ with spelling.

    Nobody is perfect at everything. If one wants to blab and point out someone's weaknesses they need to look at themselves first and see if they would like to be demoralized over their weaknesses. I see it no more than if I put you down I must be smarter. Woohoo, you won a 3rd grade spelling bee. You failed at humanities.

    hohartedlee? What kind of word is that? :biggrin_2559:

    Some lot lizard loved a guy name Lee?
