I know I'm the worst offender, but people: Please check your posts for typos. No one wants to hang out with a bunch of lazy illiterates.

I don't mind misspellings in comments, but misspellings in posts are particularly bad as they appear on the front page and look rather unprofessional. Not that this is a profession or anything, I'm just in favor of looking sharp, you know.

The grooviest thing about Metafilter is the spellchecker, can we have one here please?

What if the lazy illiterates have season tickets? I'd hang out with them. :) I second the spellchecker notion.

Nope, if you're going to hang out with illiterates, they may as well be the energetic kind:)
