I've received some feedback regarding the 'Bad Spelling' rating that leaves me thinking it might not be well received. Before making any changes, I'd like to solicit feedback from the community as a whole. We'll put it to vote. Those in favor of keeping the 'Bad Spelling' post rating, vote Keep. Those not in favor, vote Dump.

I should note this has nothing to do with my receipt of a few bad spelling dings. Although once it's gone, with it goes any existing post ratings related to bad spelling. Good spelling for everyone! :ROFLMAO:

Nothing wrong with snooks Benny.

As an app user only I haven't seen the spelling option or seen the results of said spelling option.

Nobody said iPhone users were smart or grammatically correct. We are a sexy bunch though.

Ditch the spelling dings unless you change it to be in memory of Kevin aka the spelling and grammar police captain.

I'm 100% for getting rid of it. Critiquing grammar and spelling when it wasn't asked for it downright rude, IMO. Most of us don't have perfect spelling and grammar, and even if we did, correcting others still should be discouraged, not encouraged. We don't even know if English is their primary langauge. We are here to discuss and help people with iPhone questions, not become self-appointed Internet English teachers.

I am good with dropping it also. We have so many members from other countries, not to mention auto-correct, that it seems rude to nitpick people's spelling. The only exception that I am personally good with is if they are bashing iDevices or pro Android ;)

About a troll button that if hit 10 times that account explodes together with the user. Bring some gore.

Even better!
Would dig the badassery that a troll button/icon would bring....
Would just look cool and make some think twice before posting!

You would think that but douches don't realize they are are douches. It's one of the negative side effects. Kind of like not realizing putting giant testicles hanging from underneath your truck doesn't make you cool.

Sorry of I offended anyone. Kinda :)

I say lose it. When I misspell it's my iPhone's fault anyway. Spelling correct is stupid.
