Outrageous mispellings? In a world filled with text-speak and abbreviations, I would NOT consider them to be "outrageous" mispellings!

And what if I was dyslexic? Don't you think I'd just be purely insulted by someone reminding me that I was dyslexic by correcting my spellings?

This leads me to my main point - he didn't have to correct the spellings. It wasn't any of his business that I had mispelt some words. Do you really think he felt the need to correct the spellings of some stranger?

He wasn't even interested in what I was asking!

He replied, choosing to blatantly ignore what I was saying in my post, and this he did by changing the subject completely to something totally different and insignificant.

By totally changing the subject, he was being ignorant & disrespectful towards me.

By totally ignoring the point of my post, and instead making a point of insignificant mistakes I had made, he was being insulting.

He wasn't correcting my spelling. He was being insulting, pure & simple.Edited by: eskimo_friendly
