Regarding the aforementioned spell check feature, it will not prevent you from using a correctly spelled word incorrectly! I thought I had made a Grammar Police post earlier, but can't seem to find it., so here goes with some common problem areas -there, their, they'reyour, you'reits, it'swere, where, we'rewhose, who'swould of - should be would haveIf you have any problems with the differences, PM me and I'll give you the detailed version. If I get enough feedback, I'll even post the detailed version here.Remember, the quality of your posts is often a reflection on the quality of you! Attention to detail and good writing skills can both be very important in your life. This is a great place to practice and improve your skills in a less critical (as in importance) environment.[Edit] Oh, yeah, bone up on the use of the apostrophe - that's probably the biggest problem area, other than general spelling errors, in our language today. Most of that problems above involve apostrophes!
1. There is a button labeled "Spell Check" to the right of the "Post" button. This button is your friend. It can easily take care of simple spelling errors that usually creep in when we're not looking.

Not trying to be esoteric, but the news was about something that could develop into a major scandal detrimental to the reputation of the Civil Air Patrol. Since I have a very high regard for the institution of Civil Air Patrol, I did not want to be in the position of spreading rumors, even rumors that have been published in the Miami Herald. That is why I asked for a PM response. If you are really interested, google the Miami Herald for several articles written by Erica Bolstead.Doug JohnsonFormer Member
