I openly welcome any comments and often retrieve some of them from spam because that is where some legit comments end up. It may take a few days but I also approve all comments except for those that are obviously spam. I found this one under spam which it probably is from someone named Carpet. Tell me what is wrong with this comment
“of course like your website however you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to inform the truth however I�ll definitely come back again.”
Providing for abbreviation I ignored the beginning of it. Now I need to take a look at my spelling on quite a few of my posts… umm aside from the Latin which comes up spelled wrong because oh well let’s see IT ISN’T IN ENGLISH there is nothing spelled wrong. I am just neurotic enough to check. Can someone how to inform the truth? I definitely would like to speak with the Truth just because it might be fun but to inform him of something might be a bit insulting. Now I understand coming back again there are many blogs I follow spelled wrong or not but I do know the html for an ‘.
For my readers I am sorry for this rant but the teacher in me twitches when someone says I spelled something wrong. I worked very hard to learn both English spelling and grammar (no it is not my first language) and it annoys me to no end to have someone say my posts are rife with spelling errors by someone who obviously needs a lesson in grammar, html, and apparently spelling. Hey even the term schizophrenic architects is spelled right.
Sorry for the rant. Oh and if this was spam it wasn’t very good spam considering I live in America and am not about to have my carpets in England cleaned… now cleaned by an Englishman… preferably naked… umm well yeah I am not even going to continue with that thought, way too frustrated.

I got the same message and it pissed me off too… so I binned it. lm(spellingnazi)ao
I had to post it, nothing like someone correcting spelling when they have no grammar skills. Generally I would have trashed it but I just found it amusing. Funny what we find entertaining at 4 a.m. It was made even more ironic was that I teach English and I am not a native speaker. One of my adult students reads this blog (the only one who knows I write it), I am sure he will get a kick out it because I am a bit more than neurotic about it in class and when I write. Then again I had an English teacher who threw me out of class because I spelled color, colour. She yelled that I should spell in English. I looked at her and said that is English do you want me to spell in American? She didn’t get the joke.
You were honoUrable while the teacher’s actions were coloUred by ignorance.
You have to admit it is very specialiSed knowledge.

When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way it is easy to eliminate me from that service? Thanks!
Yes, uncheck the box that says follow comments on the blog.
