While all of us have a propensity, at times, to misspell words as we rush to get ideas or theories down on paper, what about the isolated blogs that routinely irritate us because the words or letters are routinely transposed? Does the writer not know how to use spell-check or are his actions unintentional?
The term "dyslexia" is the culprit in some cases and it's a word processing difficulty. A dyslexic can want to type the word BAD and its comes out DAB. To his mind either spelling says BAD. He simply does not recognize the word as misspelt!
We have such a contributor who by his own admission is dyslexic. His contributions, with some patience of mind, can be "spot-on" but the dyslexic words often detract from the content. You all know who the individual is...but rather than berate him for something that can't be helped, put yourself in his shoes....and start to feel what life must be like for him.......
color me shocked, shocked, shocked and impressed by your thread and your post! :)
thoroughly enjoyed your post and had a good chuckle.
these positive vibes and human grace, humility, and just positive regard on a sports discussion board so often filled with antipathy and disrespect.... well it's just a damn good thing. the world is a changin' :) bdc is a changin'
im encouraged and appreciative.
humbled and appreciative moskk and frankly with all the posts on this thread..
sinking to the lowest common denominator in a society/world that makes it all too easy to be sour, doubtful, distrustful and just plain negaitve is all too easy. it's just plain hard to do the opposite and if you do, you may be laughed, derided, or maligned. kudos to everyone here.
(by the way, for levity's sake up to about 67 typos corrected so far in this post :)
mossk, ap, jr, tfb12, more rings
if this is regarding yours truly (which i suspect but dont want to presume there may not be another) and even if there it is not me, i'm loving seeing humanness in it's most positive incarnation. thanks much for modeling this (grace, humility, self respect and human regard for other than self).
call me crazy, but suddenly i'm having a little more faith in humanity.
cheers and postive vibes to all y'all and the people in yur lives
Where is the dyslexia here?
I just don't see it. Reads normally.
Hes most likely putting more effort into it since his dyslexia came to light.
Doesn't he state in his post that he had to correct 67 words already halfway through his post? If this is the case it must take a lot of time to create each and every one of his posts, and my gosh, if that is the case then bravo to you sir for sharing your thoughts here. Thank you for not letting that stop you from participating here. As I mentioned, misspelled words and grammar doesn't bother me here, this is a sports forum for goodness sakes, not an English class. As long as I am understanding a posters message he is trying to pass on then that's all I care about, which sometimes I don't, but that's could be my fault, not necessarily the posters.
I just want to thank everyone who posts here for your participation and making this a fun place to talk football, and other things, (with exception to politics, this isn't the place for that). Even the fans of other teams who has made this place their home, you make it fun too, even if we don't always agree with you.
