spelling

no, not tori spelling, I'm talking grammer.

Q: Do you think there is a direct correlation between proper spelling and how "smart" an individual is?

I do, what about you?

what got me thinking about this is over in the "tire/wheel" forum, I was just reading along about some brake issues someone had. In one post I saw: brake, break, brakdust, breakdust, brekpad, etc...

So, I was thinking....Do these people just not care, or are they dumb?

No, it's punctuation and proper use of upper and lower case.

I've had smart professors who couldn't spell. I'm not the greatest at it either.
Some people don't always read what they are typing because they never learned how to type.

But, I'll have to go with mostly yes.

I know that my spelling is worse as I get more tired at the end of the day. That also goes for grammar and syntax.

Some of the smartest folks that I know do not spell well in casual converastional typing. It is not that they do not know the words, it is just that they are focused on other things and do not focus on that element of the conversation. Get them on a business IM or eMail and they are dead on.
