I use spell check all the time, it is part of being a professional.  Except, of course, for the test, lol.  Obviously, the poster who mixed-up "their" and "there" needs to start using it or, at the least, proofread their posts.

    Sorry for typos....
    I have been very upset today..!!
    Typos are everywhere

    Yeah, the ditmo that typed the cover spelled it wrong, what is priceless, they fixed the cover of the book, but they left the webpage incorrect. 

    Typos are everywhere.  You will love this one.  At the corner store where I live there is a plastic sign that has been there for years.  The sign reads, "Florida Lottory" and it has a pink flamingo on it.  It was made by the Florida Lottery Commission.

    Right next to the incorrectly spelled, "Lottory,"  they have a poster plastered in the window that reads, "The Florida Lottery has provided over 10 Billion dollars towards education."

    Now either that money was not put to good use . . . or someone is lying.    oh boy.

    Sorry for typos. Shees! Just
    Uh..."take *you* typos???LOL

    Now what were you saying about "simple typos?"

    sorry for typos. I usually get paid
    extra for those at work  but this was JMO and I didn't QA myself 
    I know there are typos. I'm not QA and I didn't

    proof.   My post is a bit disjointed, but I think I got my point across.  I tried to represent both sides fairly. 

    I'm tired - typos ... (sm)
    I meant that the government is NOT on our side.

    AAMT is not on our side, either - since they came on the scene, conditions for MTs have plummeted. A very few people there have gotten very rich off of MTs, especially newbies. And now AAMT seems to be getting involved with India. (Why am I not surprised?)
    Oh, boy! Sorry for the typos...long day! nm
    Please overlook typos. I am on my way
    to bed and didn't proof anything. I appreciate that thanks.

    Sorry for typos... On a sugar high!
    overnight and watches sorry for the typos
    Sorry about the typos in my previous message!
    I am so livid with the 'suits' I can't even type straight, lol - anyone else there feel that management should only include someone who actually did the dirty deed of being an MT before the they think that they can 'manage us'?! I love the companies where the owners are previous MTs - now there is a company that is run intelligently in my opinion and the company that you would want to trust and put your efforts in.
    Not the typos it's misspelling "niece" that bugs.
    Yikes--and now I can't spell anymore obviously--sorry for the typos!
    my PS makes typos but I wouldn't trade my PS
    because my PS (production supervisor) is the most communicative and we all love this one....typos, schmypos - who cares as long as they get their point(s) across to us.  They are not MTs nor typists. 
    True, but typos and minor mistakes aside... SM
    I is a MT and I can post without sounding like I be uneducated.
    Typos happen, and BTW, the word is grammAr (so you
    please ignore typos (heehee) I get carried away...(NM)
    Forgive the typos in post above. I'm tired. nm.
    geeze...you can tell I am up too early this morning...sorry for the typos
    And, gad, check out the typos and syntax issues.

    My problem is people who keep ridiculing others for typos on these boards!
    excuse the typos.....been working to long today already! - nm
    The platform is escription....and sorry about the typos in my previous post...

    Don't proof at all - spell check picks up the typos.
    Doesn't that drive you crazy when you see typos in public? LOL
    Sorry about typos, sheesh...been sick and today down for round 3 sm
    of cold, bronchitis and mild pneumonia. Every time I get better I start in from the beginning with this illness! This is why I have settled for a significantly lower line rate to go where there are affordable benefits like health insurance so I can treat these things instead of being sick for over a month now and can't afford to go to the doctor because I can't work at my usual level. Goodness me.
    Never said that typos were acceptable, what I said was is 100% accuracy expected 100% of the time.

    Yes, I used to work in a docs office doing this as well as other things and but never had this problem.That is why I am frustrated.  My question was whether or not there was a curve for MT'ing or not.  I guess I just was not clear on exactly what editors/QA were really meant for.  I thought they were more of a saftey net for a TX company to ensure that everythign that goes out is what it should be.  But I guess I was mistaken.

    Anyway, I was thinking that maybe there was something else similar in this field that would be an option for me to do.  Since I actually like this line of work, I don't see why I should give up so easily.

    Lastly, its just me, but I actually think staying at home with my kids is a perfect reason to do this for a living.  I mean seeing as though I actually do want to earn a honest living doing something that I have experience doing ...why not?  It's better than relying the government for money to support my family isn't it? 

    Apology for the typos and grammar. P.S. There is no "cure" but ways of coping. (sm)

    However, please understand that requires diligence in working within yourself and many cannot or will not and therefore continue in their addiction.  You need to consult medical data and psychology before claiming there is a cure, because I do believe if you have one there are many people who would give their left arm to know it.

    excuse the typos, it's been a long day and having different fights with my DH tonight to boot - n
