It seems that a number of folks don't bother, or don't know how to, correct their spelling errors when using English.

If a future employer is reading a CV or letter of introduction full of spelling and grammar errors it might put them off. At least get the spelling right!
If you are trying to get a point across in the Forum, but your post is full of spelling mistakes, what does that say to people? Again... At least get the spelling right!

Here, on the forum, I see no end of simple/stupid spelling mistakes.
I'm no hero, and I freely admit to making loads of mistakes when I type.
I use Mozilla FireFox as my browser of choice. It's free and uses less system resources and is faster that MS IE anyway.
FireFox also has an in-line spell checker (free add-on). Spelling mistakes are underlined as you type. Right click, choose the correct word carry on.. How easy is that? So, why would people use a browser that doesn't do that? It beats me!
I can see a case for those on a job where IE is the only browser available but when at home.. no case exists.

Whilst I'm at it... ALL BLOCK LETTERS (CAPS) IS HARD TO READ AND IS THE FORUM EQUIVALENT OF SHOUTING!!

Conversely, capital letters at the start of sentences, lower case text for the rest, correct punctuation and grammar is easier to read and is not shouting at anyone.

All lower case???
Like this pargraf. writting aveyting in loer kase is equallie as bad, especialy when it has lotts of speling miztakes az well!

We have technology to help us.. it's free, so use it I say.
