shortround,

If you're racking up calls to Miss Cleo to set your line-ups, do me a favor and ask her whether Reyes or Nen will get into a game this year. I'd love to free up a DL slot.
Blessed are the cheesemakers.

look... I don't know how young the original poster is, but if it's a ten or so year old kid, cut him some slack and don't make too much fun of his spelling (altough, I have to admit, it took me a while to figure out the title of the thread. . . )

dont make fun of his spelling?

sorry...if this kid is FIVE he needs to know how to spell have, how to spell half and when to use which word.

dont make excuses for people who cant read and write. dont feel bad about pointing out their mistakes. its the only way they learn.

and the first person who tells me to capitalize letters or use apostrophes is getting slapped. :-D

there are good ways and bad ways of pointing out that someone is wrong... just laughing at them doesn't typically work too well.

this site is teeming with things like 'shud of' instead of 'should have' and 'to' instead of 'two' or 'too'
it's terrible. there ought to be a spellchecker/grammerchecker available, but there isn't.

i'm with you on the capitals though, the shift key is way too inconveniant.

If we're ragging about spelling, how about those who don't know the difference between:
there, their, and they're
your and you're
