    That hurts my brain.

    That the astounding human brain can interpret intent from context a a few letters, is no excuse for egrigious spelling and worse syntax. Sometimes we all hit the wrong key and misspell words- that's natural and no big deal, but there are some posters here who make my brain hurt just as much as the original post.

    However, I put up with it because I love all you goofy MBers.

    'Tis true... if words are spelled properly, tho... you can read sentences and even whole paragraphs in one glance. It's called speed reading, and it's real.

    Only time I had a problem reading graucho's post above was when he said, "iproamtnt". That took me at least 4 seconds to figure out, but everything else was pretty instantaneous.

    The thing that hurts my head too much is how you used the words (to,too,two) all incorrectly. Every time I see somebody mess that up, it hinders my ability to read quickly much more than just jumbling up the letters. Adding extra letters or not the right ones is also pretty crappy, but basic grammar is of utmost importance to me.

    The whole point of this is that jumbling letters in a word is fairly easily overlooked by your brain. But bad grammer and not knowing how to spell the word to begin with will easily lead you to headaches... oh yes!
