Pet peeve

I received some posts in a couple newsgroups I checked before heading off to bed and doesn't anyone know how to spell any more? Do they think because it's online they don't need to use correct spelling, punctuation, capitalization, or anything? I ended up reading the one thing three times to get it to make sense. I absolutely, positively hate that. To top it all off, they're book newsgroups. You'd think that if the person could read the book they're talking about, they could at the very least spell. I do understand how your fingers can fly too fast and you end up misplacing a letter or two. I've typed "teh" instead of "the" a time or two myself but the whole colossal thing? You don't capitalize his name but do capitalize his job and only capitalize half the title of the book? I mean, c'mon people, use your brain, it's not hard and can be lots of fun! The other one, I'd wonder if she's misspelling the word in her signature on purpose if her posts weren't just as bad.

Okay, done ranting. I feel a little better, how 'bout you? lol And yes, I'm thinking of leaving that one newsgroup.
