    If I got paid to post here, or this was somehow business related you bet I'd take the time to slow down, spellcheck a dozen times and look up words I'm not sure about. Work emails, business letters, correspondence with my bank...you know, the stuff that sorta matters in life, those are worth my time to do them correctly. As much as I enjoy Redszone it is entertainment, pure and simple. As such, I could really care less if I misspell words or have typos or if people think I'm a complete idiot because of it. Now, you start buying product from me, or loaning me scads of cash, then...then I will care.

    i do it sometimes as playful ribbing. i understand how it could be annoying. Ltlabner gave me a well deserved rebuke in a thread a week ago or so.

    Its hard to convey that sometimes on forums.
    Witty signature.

    Me and Lt are tight like that, that's how I got away with it!!

    Plus I gave him an early nomination for RZ's worst typist, so it was more of a compliment anyway!!

    I didn't have a problem with anything you said, I actually found the "that word is on life support" comment funny.

    You just have to be careful who call out for typos. Some people have more (alot more) then others, and I'm not sure how they would take it being pointed out.

    I choose to just leave them all alone. It's safer that way.

    I did? Geez...sorry if I came across like a jerk. I was probably typing fast and didn't realize how harsh it might have sounded. Of course, typing to fast is what gets me into trouble in the first place!

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Nothing will ever top "Kerry Wood has a torn labia"!
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
