Jo - when I am quoting someone who has egregious errors in their post, is it okay for me to quietly correct their post without drawing attention to the fact? If I foe'd everyone who made errors on this board I'd have few to talk to. But they make me bleed . . .

Haha love the cartoon.

The trouble with correcting quotes you are including in your post is that it breaks the 'don't alter quotes' rule, sorry!

Looks like I am the only one who gets to have fun, because I do correct subject lines. :-) I shorten them so they fit on one line, fix the spelling, adjust the capitalization, remove excess punctuation, and sometimes just change them a bit so they better reflect the topic.

But . . . I leave posts alone.

Hahahaha, true that. I was thinking about not correcting the spelling, etc., didn't even think of the other, lol.
