It's probably wrong of me, but I judge the intelligence of people a little bit when they type things like "than" or "you're" when they mean to say "then" or "your."

Yeah, I know what you mean. I try to overlook it and not be judgemental. I know I can often make the same errors when typing fast and just streaming my point across. They're easy mistakes to make when you're rushing. 

Then again, I pretty much always proof read before posting.

Yours in earnest, Jason.

I do not type than instead of then.-Spelling and grammar are not the same.

Just a follow up. I heard back from GG and the asked me to uninstall and reinstall the app, and wala it is fixed. I am not sure why I didn't think to do this. I guess I am slipping...

Wala?

Maybe don't use words if you don't know how to spell them.

How do you know he wasn't praising Wala, the aboriginal sun goddess?

Then he should have capitalized it, otherwise he'd still be eligible for this thread. :-)

There's no such thing. :-) It's voilà. But hey, if hukt on fonikz werkd for yoo, kool.


Generally speaking (to nobody here), I'd think people would want to improve their writing. If someone types "you're" when "your" is the correct word, people judge them as dumber than they may be. If you send an email to your boss and it's full of grammatical and spelling mistakes, you might very well be fired.

On one hand, the point of communication is to be understood, but on the other… you don't want to come off as a dumbass, either. We all make typos or go back to edit a sentence without realizing you've now messed up the grammar, or type in a hurry from time to time, but that's entirely different than some other situations where you're just making a dumb mistake, especially when it's one you could learn not to make in the future.

"Wala" was basically a written sound effect at best. It was not meant to be any particular word. I do however understand the need for proper grammar. It was not intended to be a word in this case but I will be sure to use "voilà" next time to avoid scrutiny.

Part of the problem is that upper management and account executives in Corporate America are often the worst offenders. Some of these folks have MBA's but little regard to the importance of appearing professional. A lot of it is probably due to the increased use of phones for correspondence. Everyone is simply becoming accustomed to it. I'm going to sound old, but that shit wouldn't have been well received 20 years ago.

So when I see a typo or incorrect punctuation on a forum, it's not that big of a deal (unless I typed it).

I can't find it, but I'm certain there's at least one in this post.

    • Congrats.   You will probably miss a few tags.    Don't worry.   Try to set up a routine.   It may take some time.   The magnet is strong but I wish there was a Kevlar string attached to the device.   I've not had mine fall out though.   
    • H4 arrived today. Honestly I was shocked by how small it is, basically same size as the watch, just slightly thicker, maybe 1.5-2X as thick. On one hand, I like the tinyness because that leads me to believe I won't notice it clipped to my belt. On the other hand, it seems like it might be easy to lose in a golf bag or in the garage. Got it all set up for my round tomorrow, I wonder how long it will take me to adapt to manually tagging vs. the watch which automatically tags.
    • I didn't mind seeing someone accidentally dragging a spike on the green as long as they tamped it back down. The problem was the people who did rarely fixed them.

    • Day 5: 12/03/2022 Today was a good day. I worked on my priority pieces and felt good about a lot of them.  Then I went back to a previous priority piece because I got this goofy hip thing I do and it's back. So, I spent quite a while today looking at my swing in the mirror mostly in slow-motion and some quicker ones. Trying to feel the feel when it looks right. And then running out to the garage to hit a few balls into the net trying to emulate the feel and the swing I see in the mirror.
