    [QUOTE=lordofdragons;1358474]ware do I get a good spell check. Thanks

    To maybe better help us understand you, would you mind giving us your age and Country of origin and where you live at this time. This would, perhaps, help us understand your posts better and maybe give you more help.

    Thank you.

    Don't waste your time. We have tried to help him at other forums in the past and he still refused our help. We even edited some of his posts before and offered ideas and he refused it. I think he's somewhere in eastern Canada. IEspell checker is here; http://www.iespell.com/download.php

    That is not actually true. At MLT KDI was always very responsive and positive to offers of help. However, the hectoring and bullying attitude of many people about his spelling would be enough to make anyone unresponsive.

    You wouldn't harrass someone with one leg about why they were walking so slowly, so why harrass someone who you already know to have difficulty with spelling by constantly harping on about it?

    Yes we did. We tried to help him, but he got real defensive about it. We tried to edit his posts do that they were readable, but I had to give up as I could not get a handle on most of what he was trying to say. The odd thing is that most of the text files with his routes are very easy to read.

    Dan, We are not trying to harass or bullying him. We tried to help him and he just doesn't make an effort to try to himself. Even if we edited his posts in the past. Like Kevin said, look at his readme text for his route. Explain that one to me.......

    When the same people who said the same things in every MLTD thread he made, are saying the same things in every TS thread then it would seem to be harrassing. We know full well how he posts, if it bugs you so much that his English is so poor then don't read the threads. The threads say who the starter is so you know what you are getting before you even click.

    IMO Nelson did and is making an effort. But why make an effort if you are still going to be bitched at by the same old people?

    Has anyone thought of asking KDI why his readme texts are fine but his posts are not?

    KDI - how come your read me texts are fine but your posts are all over the shop?
