[AI] Care for spellings in postings - a request

Appologies if I had sounded snobbish. But do not forget that such things may be said to folks like us in Access India, but young members of this list need good writing skills to convince a prospective employer (in any language, not necessarily in English, if that is asked as a prerequisite). I keep reading worst writings (as a journalist) and so reading some more in this list or anywhere else couldn't disappoint me any more. But you cannot deny that a well-expressed idea, weather in BBC or in Access India or anywhere else touches you and there is no harm for people to learn it. I still feel a neatly written message project a person in a positive light and I say this not out of snobbishness, but out of desire to see others improve and enjoy the benefits of it. As a writer, I cannot consider writing as a petty issue too.

Really a petty issue over spellings.

It certainly makes us snobbish to be lured to be looking about spelling mistakes & comparing it with party wear or disheveled appearances.  This is not a grammar class or schooling where we are meeting.  It’s an amalgam of ideas we are sharing & ideas get prominent here.  We also know poorly written language can never be a barrier to grasping the essence of an idea.  Only we have to a bit stretch ourselves to understand.  Short messages, shortened words are the need of the time today for less traffic, less time, etc.  This is not a place to show or unshow ones skills in writing-it’s simple business of give & take; take the fruit & throw the chaff.  Lotus always grows in mire, let’s value the gold not the rust.  As far improving spellings, Braille is just one & perhaps rather older amongst many as on date like computers, views, news, conversation, etc.
