Spelling errors will not be tolerated. Although they are not specifically prohibited by the ROC there are several provisions which cover them. <blockquote><hr> Show respect at all times. [/ QUOTE ] Spelling errors are horribly disrespectful to elementary school teachers, spell check programmers, and dictionary authors. <blockquote><hr> Help build the Community. [/ QUOTE ] Spelling errors do not help build the community. In fact, they are terribly destructive. Within the last month, many people have left these boards and UO due to rampant spelling errors. I believe Orvago is the latest. The poor spelling finally pushed him over the edge, i.e. Orvaga. <blockquote><hr> Deliberately circumventing the censor filter is prohibited. [/ QUOTE ] Pwnography is obviously pornography. Majorwoo is clearly a spelling mistake. Accidentally leaving the "d" off the end is the only thing saving this particularly poor speller from permanent banishment. Some however are a bit more subtle. Kelmo for instance is an easily disguised error which when correctly spelled equals Kill Mo. This actually demonstrates the next ROC violation. <blockquote><hr> Personal attacks are prohibited.This specifically means any text/post that is blatantly attacking another person on or off the forum, especially in a personal way. [/ QUOTE ] I know several geologists who find Petra Fyde to be a personal attack on their work with fossilized trees. They too have left these "boards". I'm sure there are other violations that I am missing but this should be enough to demonstrate the symbiotic relationship of the ROC and good spelling. Let us all work together to build a community which follows the rules-both the rules of conduct and of the English language.
