A quick rant

OK, so it's late and I'm getting cranky, but there is one thing I've noticed here on these boards that is driving me nuts. I really hate to pick on people and this is totally inconsequential, but...


I've seen "prbly", "prolly", and "proably" all within the last few days. In fact I can't even remember seeing it spelled correctly on the boards, ever. Maybe I'm just getting a little too old and this what our current education standards produce, but it makes me a little sad to see so many young folks misspell simple words like this.

End of Rant. I'm heading for bed now. Good Night.

"Prbly" and "proably" look like lazy misspellings.

"Prolly" is a different animal, though. I like that one, just because it expresses a more casual or fanciful mood than "probably" connotes. It's more of a colloquialism than a mistake. I'm prolly not alone in thinking that. :lookaroun

I do not like when people use the word loose for lose and lose for loose...

Drives me crazy!..:)

I also am not fond of the prolly and other things like that but I do not let it get to me..I just read on..

You used it the right way..if you would have said loosing then it would be wrong..:D
Now if you thought you were using it wrong then I would have to slap you..;)

I used it the wrong way first, and my spell check corrected it!:lol::lookaroun

I re- errored it.:D:wave::lookaroun
