deadline projects always come first in my book, because you can get carried away with other projects and not finish the deadline project in time

Hi, please do not correct spelling or grammar. This is NOT a website devoted to grammar or syntax. It's a nice place devoted to all things yarn. For what it's worth I do have a fairly decent grasp of English and find people's need to poin out mistakes, amusing, irtitating and exasperating.

David, I'm sorry. It was your obviously excellent grasp of the English language (much better than mine) that made the typo amusing. I didn't mean to irritate or exasperate you. Please accept my apology.

David, I appologise for any confusion or upset my earlier post caused.

Just to clarify a few things (and I do mean clarify, not make excuses for).

When I thanked GG for 'picking up' on your error, I meant 'noticed' rather than 'pointed out'. Maybe I should have worded my post better.

When I see a spelling or grammer error in a post I ask myself 3 questions:

1) Does it cause confusion?

2) Does it accidentally cause offence? (Deliberate offence is, by definition, not accidental)

3) Has the poster asked for any errors to be pointed out to them? (eg they may have posted a draft letter of complaint and ask other forumites for advise before sending off the final letter)

If the answer is No to all questions I let it pass and move on.

If the answer to any question is Yes, I try to let the poster know in a polite way. So for question 1) I may ask 'did you mean A or B?' to make it my confusion not theirs. For question 2) I'll point out the error (by sending a PM if necessary), but make it clear I don't take offence from them making an error. For question 3) I point out the error, and stick to the facts, avoiding throwing any accusations at the poster. If I can't do this for any of the questions I will let it pass.

Once again, I'm sorry for any confusion or upset I caused.

I agree, I found David's typo amusing.

I also though your reply to it was amusing, and not insulting in any way.
