Do you not think technology has made us lazy in spelling...Spell checkers
I am not a good speller to be honest.
I have lived in Norway for nearly 18yrs and it wasn't until I started the
internet forums that I needed to write in English.
You have two languages going around your head.. and when I did write I would
find myself getting both languages mixed up.
The Norwegian "og"= English "and" would often be mixed into the leters.
I also remember when I first joined this list how certain members would
brand my inelegance by the way I would write and in a very demeaning way.
It's a long story.. but I my education was very limited due to children's
homes, foster homes etc... some people don't know how lucky they have been.
Don't get me wrong... I'm not asking for sympathy... in fact I think those
years have molded me into the person I am today and I am proud of that.
Sometimes you can't see the whole story.
