    Speeling(sic) Mistakes in Thread Titles

    I'm sorry, but they really get on my tits! Now I'm a far from perfect speller, but in the title of a thread surely it isn't too much to ask for a little extra effort? Or failing that a Mod stepping in to correct?

    Recently we've had:

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Is it that you genuinely don't understand what the thread is about? If you get it regardless of speeling () errors, then you're just being a pedant.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Meh. Grammatical incompetence annoys me, not typos and bad spelling.

    Now, if any of those titles had rogue apostrophes, they'd have been edited before you could say "Prince Harry"...

    Personally I don't like needless capitalisation of words in thread titles.

    People cant help if they cant spell, but i know they should check to see if the spelling is correct. But it gets annoying when you have to check every other word.... like me
