Ok... I love you all, but this is really bugging me. Loose, Lose, Losing.

Loose, Lose, Losing.

This needs to be fixed here. Desperately. I see this mistake more often than the 'their, they're, and there' mistake, or the 'your, and you're' mistake.

Loose = A screw is 'loose'. A screw or a tie can be 'loosened.'

Lose = You 'lose' your wallet, or money to taxes. ( You do not 'loose' it)

Losing = I am 'losing' my mind because of the spelling dilemma here. NOT Loosing! No 'loosing.' 'Loosing is not a word. Actually 'Losing' may not even be a true word, but if it is, that's how you would spell it. The correct word for 'losing' would likely be 'lost'. It is not a 'losing' cause, it is a 'lost cause.' "Fighting a losing battle" should probably be ' fighting a lost battle.'

Ok, love ya, hugs kisses, sorry I chastised you, Lol, I am just helping you.

You guys are killing me on this thread. I was being sarcastic and only moderately serious, but it seems to have turned into a fun thread. Which is kool. I make mistakes too, often just because of speed typing on fast moving forums, and if you don't catch it right away, someone replies, and then you're stuck with however you typed it. So truthfully, I understand common typos, I make them here and there too.

Ok, ok I love you too !!

and everyone else at DP. It could be the fourth margarita on the beach down here in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. You really know how addicted you are to DP when you are desperately trying to get an internet signal on your laptop to get on DP. As far as spelling, we have bigger fish to fry. I have tried to download spellcheck to no avail and sometimes honestly it is just a matter of being in a hurry and by the time you catch the mistake it just too much work to redo the post. So maybe even some of the errors are due to to some that are not so educated in our mind control educational system and yet they possess a far superior type of intelligence and wisdom. We will not LOSE this fight to an agenda of dictatorship and will not LOOSEN up on our commitment to freedom. We will not LOSE, no matter what challange is put before us. There is always a silver lining to all that is happening. In this case, maybe it is that the traitors are making themselves known from the patriots. Wow, is it HOT down here. 100 F in the shade. A frosty margarita to all of my fellow patriots. I love you all. Bad spelling or not; it is your heart and intentions that really matter the most and that will prevail.

Geez, you just made me want to ...

grab my beach clothes, get into my car and drive to my beach house in Cantamar, BC, Mexico in search of my beach chair, umbrella, cooler and a pitcherful of Margaritas! Opps; don't let me forget my laptop 'cuz I, too, would die w/out my daily dose of the DP!! Thanks for the motivation!

spell check

is built in. When you are preparing a post, if a word is underlined in red, right-click on it ... options are provided.
Unfortunately, for grammar assistance, you would have to prepare your post in Word, and then copy and paste it. But many people are in way too much of a hurry to get their thoughts out into cyberspace.

If a comment is worth posting, it should be worth proofreading before hitting the submit button.

Thanks for the info on the right click option of spell check. I didn't know about that. It may save me a lot of dictionary time.

As for grammar errors, when I started posting here about a year ago, someone posted a similar spelling and grammar thread. I was pretty reluctant to post anything after that. I soon got over that fear. :-) If anyone should want to give me grammar tips on my posts, just do it with the contact feature please. Ha!

No, I'm crying

It was as high as $4.50 today

Freedom brings People together

Ron Paul was right

Thank you!

These are things people should learn. It makes one sound very ignorant to use the wrong words. You're not going to make your point clearly and concisely if the wrong words are used. Some may say to loosen up but they've lost their zeal for accuracy and the importance of tying up loose ends in a note or conversation. In all seriousness, there is much to be said for a man who pays close attention to details, formidably crafting accurate and informative language. It exemplifies your literacy, too. Thank you all for educating yourselves in proper grammar as well as in information. God bless.

Investigate "when" dictionaries came into existence

and you will find that a consistent way to spell words "correctly" is a rather new-fangled idea.

The Grammar and Spelling Threads are the longest ones

Don't get me started on "too," "to," and "two." I've said it before on this site.

Stop wining

Some people wine too much and say "wining" when they mean "winning."

I'll stop whining, now.
