    To think - were I still teaching I'd have felt duty bound to give this misfit "B" for effort.

    I suppose that if I do not reply I shall be stymied!

    (Had to edit the quote as all tags saying "Paypal" etc. proved live!)

    If I get emails with spelling mistakes I automatically assume that they're spam and they go in the bin

    It is said that such errors are often deliberate. The sender is targeting the most vulnerable and uneducated people. Errors such as these filter out people (such as you) who are unlikely to fall for whatever scam is being perpetrated.

    More than likely! I often feel that 35 years of my life have been wasted!

    Seriously, though, in recent years I have come across more and more teachers whose spelling was atrocious - and I came across one who actually pluralised "you", as in:

    "Will yous all go back and sit down!"

    Worst of all:

    "You lent it off of him? No! You borrowed it off of him!"

    I must admit I have wondered if this be deliberate, especially with the missing "t" of "limied". Accidental omission of a letter is more frequently associated with writing or typing in Capital letters, and this omission is glaring.
