Yep, the new forums need to ban anyone trying to use "rediculous" in their posts... (not ban the person, ban the "word" itself)... there needs to be a spell checker that will auto-correct it to "ridiculous" or, at the least, flag the far-too-often incorrect spelling and require the typist to correct the error. Even if someone names a character "Rediculous", they should be banned from posting at all, for they would look ridiculous.

A good percentage of players learned English only after their native language. Go Fk yourself.

Yeah...about that.

See, the problem isn't so much the people spelling the word incorrectly, it's that a great many English speakers not only are incapable of pronouncing the words they speak every day correctly but also went through the American Education System.

English is not only the most complicated language in the world contextually, grammatically and phonetically, it's one of few with homonyms. Really, if you want to complain about people spelling "ridiculous" as "rediculous" because people can't say "rid - ick - you - les" and instead say "ree-dic-you-less" you should also complain that the official spelling for "nay-bor" is "neighbor" and that "honor" is pronounced "on-er."

…which means that they've actually had some formal education on things like spelling and grammar, which is often abandoned early on for native language education.

English:

Moose - Moose
Goose - Geese

Louse - Lice
Mouse - Mice
House - Houses

Win - won
Spin - spun

To - Too - Two
Won - One
knight - Night (And you thought silent letters were unimportant).
Toe - Tow

The fact that anyone not native to it bothers to learn English at all earns them some leeway in my book.

On rule to rule them all:

if English is your only spoken language, you should be auto-banned for complaining about people who have English as a secondary language (or even further down the list).

If you *could* care less, it must mean you care more than nothing. Unless negative caring is possible, in which case you could care less than zero. But I would think caring is an absolute value kind of thing, where even being anti-grammar is still caring.

Regardless, your grammar appears to be in order; it's only your spelling and colloquial phrases that are a bit off.

Have a nice day :)

I generally let some spelling/grammar mistakes slide here and there (mostly because I'm notorious for making "typos")... so long as the writing overall is clear.

That said... the misuse of the following two words "slightly" irritates me:

affect - effect
