    Default Why I like to read here at COTH.

    For the most part people that post know how to spell and use grammer correctly which is refreshing to see after Facebook and many forums.

    Thank you COTHers for taking the time to use your education in an entertaining manner.

    Well, spellcheck is not always right, don't you know.

    I won't even talk about autocorrect, that is plumb irritating.

    Trying to write in other than English is, lets say, very interesting.

    I just got an iphone and hate the autocorrect feature. Until I figured out how that worked I was sending off confusing messages to customers. Of course it helps to try and not reply to messages while walking a horse out after a ride as that seemed to put autocorrect into overdrive.

    I like reading here and on UDDB because I can get a lot of different opinions on issues that, to which, I wouldn't otherwise have access. That alone is a huge benefit to me because it allows me to gather different opinions and choose the one that works for me.

    I wanted to add, you may correct my writing any time, I know it is not good enough, spellcheck or not.

    I will appreciate whoever does, so I can try to learn more.

    I love it too... and for the most part some really intelligent conversation. For instance, baby forums make my brain hurt. Some good stuff on HGS but I just lurk and watch for train wrecks. Love these off topic days!

    You can turn the AutoCorrect feature off on your iPhone. I guess not many people realize that.


    Settings > General > Keyboard > Auto-Correction
    I find that a ducks opinion of me is very much influenced over whether or not I have bread. Ducks love bread but they do not have the capability to buy a loaf. Thats the biggest joke on the duck ever.

    I know and don't mind it, until I am trying to text Jane and it keeps putting in John?

    I know Bluey...but I got the feeling that the OP wouldn't mind. I feel the same way she does and would want someone to point the ironic fumble!! All in Fun!!

    I am sure it's a sick joke from the developers to make it use these innuendo terms!
