As an educated individual, I have a hard time reading some of the threads on here. I don't believe I have ever seen such a diverse amount of ways to spell different words or use past tense and present tense properly. I find myself getting headaches sometimes trying to figure out what the hell people are trying to say. LOL. i am are wundering wat abowt much how these card iz are werth. Feel free to post away! LOL!

You're on the forum if you care so much about spelling and grammar. Most people come here to read and write about cards, and i'm going to say most people don't give a crap how people do their writing as long as it can be followed.

Thanks for the worthless thread though, I'm going to go read about sports cards now.

For some reason I think "unpossible" actually makes for a nice word!

1. Many younger kids (teens maybe) not really taught all that well.
2. People with disabilities (multiple threads recently regarding this).
3. Text typing
4. It's only a message board, I type fast, who cares.

What I don't understand is how, in the world of autocorrect, things are still misspelled. The squiggly red line means something. Also, it shouldn't require an immense about of brain power to use the right version of words, i.e. their/there, your/you're, too/to. Is it really that difficult to remember which one to use?

Back to cards .

"ad litem", "nunc pro tunc", "ab initio", "inter alia", "patellofemoral" and "vasopressin"

Hahah I can see how a computer would screw up those particular words. When I say "world of autocorrect", though, I'm referring to the plethora of assistance that humans are afforded outside of their education that should assist them with spelling basic words correctly. I just don't think it should be (or is) that difficult to spell with accuracy.

I would like to see you use patellofemoral in a box break post, though .

EX: I broke a case of 2012 Topps Finest and got a MOJO-RIFIC Bryce Harper auto; however, it will probably not increase in value because he is on the !@#$%&$# disabled list with patellofemoral pain syndrome. Scans inside!!

I know many educated people who are poor spellers, and not crazy on wasting time using spellcheck on a forum site about baseball cards. However, I'm sure there is a spelling or grammer forum somewhere...

The way people talk and type is a reflection on themselves.
P.s. I fixed it for you.

Well said, and yes this is a waste of a thread by just another grammer cop! It's a sports card forum leave it alone. If you are irratated by poor grammer than don't come on these boards.

If it's a waste then why did you come to this thread, read the posts, then type your own post?

The thread title was self explanatory. If you are irritated by a thread like this why click the thread to view it?

Condescending people on Sports Card Forums is a reflection on themselves also.
