Mistakes in Blog Comments
I can't tell you how many times I've misspelled "bike"—it comes out as "biek", Or "the", which more often than not is typed "teh" When writing my own blog that's acceptable because I rely on the trusty spell checker to pick up my error, highlight it, and with a mouse-click I get choices for correct spelling. It's a simple fix. Done. Or as a last resort, edit the post.

But what happens when responding to someone else's blog? I don't believe there's a spell checking option and only occasionally have I seen culprit words highlighted, alerting me to possible errors. But what bugs me the most is when I proof my response, miss the error, and the result makes me look careless or uneducated or worse—I've offended someone when I never meant to.
I know, I know: "To err is human; to forgive, divine." I keep reminding myself of that.
