    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    gmc has a propensity for typing with his his boxing gloves on. We then have the joy of trying to decipher his code.

    Well, I really wasn't sure, I thought they might be misprints or possibly Briticisms (did I spel that right?)

    Reminds me of an old riddle: What is a peccadillo? Answer: An armadillo who has been taught how to type.

    My theory is that gmc types phonetically and if we could just pronounce his words correctly we'd know precisely what he sounds like.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    What I don't understand about this thread is why the misspelling in the title has not been corrected by a staff member as of yet. That forum management staffs don't take the initiative to do this without having to be asked puzzles me.

    What's interesting is that reading posts typed by you in the not too distant past rarely if at all contain these sorts of errors.

    Indeed! You have always been a favorite poster of mine throughout my internet travels.

    The present crop of moderators, unlike those of yesteryear, have been selected primarily on the basis of their tact.

    They could ask the poster if he or she would like it fixed. That's what I meant by taking initiative.

    In all honesty I would have corrected the mistakes myself but I hadn't noticed them until mark pointed them out. I tend to do this late in the evening which might be causal factor.

    At one point I tried teaching myself speed typing but I've never been able to get the hang of it and since I no longer have to produce reports I have no particular incentive to try again I dare say if I took more time I wouldn;t do it but it's not something I particularly worry about just as I don't worry about the spelling mistakes others make like there or there's instead of their or theirs or borough instead of burgh (scotsnglish in joke that one) or color instead of colour.

    Rest assured any spelling mistakes are more likely to be typing errors than misspelling on my part it's simply that spelling and typing os a multitask too far.

    I will now set out to annoy you all by not making tipping mistakes.
