Default Corrections to Board Posts

I suppose this question has been asked a hundred times already... but here goes one more time. More often than I care to think about, I'll post a reply on one of the CM boards. Equally often, no sooner do I click "Post" than I discover some horrendous misspelling or gramikal errer. Other sites give you 30 minutes or so to go back in and edit out your embarrassing gaffes... but this is not the case here. Any reason why that cannot be put in place? It would be helpful to those of us who cannot resist the temtation to click the "Post" button and the instantaneous gratification generated by seeing our comments on line.

Hi ERnie,
If you need a post corrected, simply post on the boards or e-mail someone from CM and it will be corrected. I'm not sure if a feature like this is even possible, but will pass on your idea.

Ernie - It might be able to be done. It is probably a good idea. I will ask about it. I don't program these boards, by the way, but the guy who does is a genius.

If you ever make a HORRIBLE mistake you can send an email to DONNA, JIM BRAGG, or KUKI and they will fix it for you right away. They can do that with almost no trouble at all.

I hate grammaticlerical errors, too. But I have leaned to proof-read.

Ernie,
I am a newcomer to these message boards and I have to say that your input and recommendations are excellent. I try to spell everything correctly also. However I read these messages for info and not to critique spelling errors. Your English teacher probably doesn't care either. Keep up the good postings. Thanks again

Paul... I know one can do it over at "the other board". Yes... you are right, I should proof read. But I'm so anxious to get up my "pearls of wisdom" that my pinky finger just automatically hits that shift key and... low and behold, there I am... on the boards. It is my silly mispellings that drive me nuts.

Ernie

I find people who can't think of more than one way to spell a word to be rather dull.
