My apologies ahead of time if you are offended by this, but...have you concidered spending that extra time on spell checking what you had typed so quickly? A quick visit to www.webster.com
can help with some of the ambiguous spellings, i.e. descent vs. decent, loose vs. lose, moot vs. mute? Some of the things I see typed up in a hurry, on the Internet and at work, make me wonder why so many people in this country are so bent on having immigrants learn English, when they themselves don't know it very well.
Anyway, I don't mean to be pissing in your Wheaties here, I probably need to start my own thread under Off-Topic/Anal, where I can share my displeasure of online grammar with other Spelling and Grammar Nazis. Beter yet, that thread could be used to proactively educate the forum citizens of commonly misused words and phrases...
Yeah, I'll do that, as soon as I get over my procrasitination...
