Each weak as I right these colons, I half to pay a specialty retention to spelling and grammars and udder associated eras that I might make. Nothing irritates my auditors at the Duly News more then when they sea the aweful ways Amercians reed and right on the Internets theses days, ore when won of there colonists sends a colon that peers to be writ by a illiterious persona.
Unfortunately, I have Microsoft Word to cache every miss steak I made and while checking that last paragraph it only caught too misspellings and nun of the other mistakes.
It’s no wonder that people have forgotten how to spell or use words like “than” and “then.” If a computer doesn’t catch the mistake, it must be correct. Computers don’t lie. Still, there are so many blatant mistakes made in all forms of media that sometimes I wonder if anyone actually cares anymore. Why we want to make immigrants learn English before Americans learn it is baffling.
Perhaps, while people are texting, these errors can be overlooked. The need to shorthand words into fewer keystrokes can be understood in the name of carpal tunnel prevention. Not everyone is a court reporter or a secretary capable of shorthand that makes sense, so we do our best to shorten how funny our “friends” are to LOL. However, when a website advertising services that would appear to be of a professional nature makes huge mistakes in spelling, then “professional” is not the label that I think of when I am making a decision to use those services.
It’s even worse if it’s from a service that should know how to spell, like a tattoo parlor. The Internet is full of photos of guys with great tattoos that say such things as, “I am awsome,” and “Only God will juge me,” and my favorite tramp stamp, “Sweet pee.” What’s even more amazing is that I don’t think many of these people with unfortunate tattoos even know that they are misspelled.
Take the Mitt Romney campaign’s misspelling of “America” for an iPhone app. It’s not so bad that they spelled it “Amercia,” because a typing mistake is inherent in all writing. It’s that they didn’t catch it and it was such an important part of the application. People were supposed to take a phone picture and superimpose the words “A Better America” across the photo. They sent the app out finalized with the non-word “Amercia” replacing America.
The Obama 2008 presidential run was a study in graphic design genius, and as far as I know, nothing was misspelled. From the PepsiCo-like logo of “Change We Can Believe In” to the “Gotham” font, everything was master planned by designers trying to influence the thinking of an entire nation of voters. Compared to the McCain campaign, it is no wonder Obama won. Moreover, if Romney can’t do any better, maybe he should run for president of Amercia. He can do nothing but make it better.
I don’t claim to be a great writer and I know I make mistakes all the time that drive perfectionists up the wall. Sometimes I end my sentences with prepositions, which is irritating isn’t it? Sometimes if I feel like it I might forget a comma. And I sometimes begin sentences incorrectly. But I feel like I may have conjunctionitis, so please excuse me.
Nevertheless, today’s spelling misshapes on the Internet halve gone two far. I am in aww of the links it has gone to. Its no wander that we are sew far behind the Chinese in sow many disciplines. Its like Chinese water torcher to learn how pour our riding skills half become in Amercia. Even if eye dew end sentences in propositions now and then, or use a double negative, don’t think I don’t no more better about it. We knead to put hour feet down and improve are overall educational system or we will soon be in the base meant economically, if were knot their all ready. Witch way we tern now is up to us and noone else. Your not helping by allowing you’re kids to be loosers. Make them red and rite properly. Its definately gonna effect weather Amercia has a future roll in the whirled or weather we are juged as failures.
