From now on when I use a contraction that is also an homonym I am going to use the wrong one for the hell of it. Who else wants to make it a game and point out where we mess up and use the right one?

Now that we can misspell AND miscontract we have all jocks covered. How ‘bout punctuation? Should we also let that slide? How about pronunciation? Let slide???

I also think that proof reading should go by the wayside. A missing word or two just adds to the confusion and makes reading the post more interesting.

Maybe be a little Cockney about it, and drop all “H”s from any words? As in ” Wat te Bluddy ‘ell?”

Punctuation ? I love trying to read multiple paragraphs written as one sentence !
Are they asking a question or telling me something ? Hmmmm.
I love the ones that add an apostrophe and spell out the complete words anyway. ie: you’are.
And how long has “prolly” been in the dictionary ? WTH , over ?
I saw the latest spelling for answer yesterday…ancer ! LOL

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
