It wasn't a glitch. It was me.

I almost always need and edit and I might not be able to notice a mistake until the next day. Us Dyslexics tend to read our errors as correct. Not fully read the thread but 24 hours would be really helpful on the limit.

Edit but 1 hour is better than it was.
If you can't talk about the problem, how are you ever going to even start talking about the solution?

I've had this problem for decades and thought it was unique to me until reading your comment.

No matter how slow or how many time you proof read a post it always reads right until re reading several hours later. Had no idea could be Dyslexic.

Thanks for bringing this up - time to be tested.

So how would that help if someone uses the quote function before you've had time to edit your post?

It may help Russell to know that I understand that he can't write well when he chooses not to*. I take issue with the bollocks he comes out with, not the way that he spells that bollocks.

So, as far as I am concerned, his alleged dyslexia is not an issue.



*although sometimes his writing is very precise and correct.

Sometimes he copies from other sources...

But seriously, are you an expert on dyslexia? Do you know if and how it can be affected by stress or other factors?
Your comments are uncomfortably close to disrespecting the disability of another and that is not nice... and it is not as if he doesn't give you enough ammunition to have a go on proper grounds.

I claim no such expertise.

But I know bollocks when he and others talk it.

I do not doubt it, and I expect you to call it out for what it is, but you should lay off the dyslexia, even if it is imagined.

Attius I won't sink to your level by even bothering to reply to you. Thank you Hairy for your support.
