Apology accepted. I understand your confusion with our customs.

In this forum, we do not abbreviate. We do have some that we all use. Such as DH=Darling Husband, DD=Darling Daughter, DS=Darling Son, SIL=Son-in-law. There are a few more and you will learn them in time. If you don't understand one, just ask. We will gladly explain. And BTW (by the way) spelling doesn't count here. We are very forgiving for those not familiar with the English language.

This sounds kind of strange, Addie. I would say we don't correct people's spelling errors, but attempting to use correct spelling, grammar and punctuation in any context makes accurate communication easier.

I would rather err on the side of not embarrassing the poster by publicly calling attention to their spelling errors. I am happy with just being able to get the message. Not all our members have a language degree.

don't care about it it's the same in all language particularly in France where grammar and spelling are very important

I don't think it's an error to not mention it, and I don't think anyone here does mention it, unless they really can't understand what someone typed. That's very different from saying "spelling doesn't count."

Actually I and my husband have Bachelor of Arts degrees in English and we rarely correct anyone's spelling or grammar. 😊

The only time I have was when my DH's female former best friend and I were arguing online. We were like oil and water (don't ask lol.) Anyway, she was really pushing it with me so I started to correct her English to one up her. Not my finest moment. Anyway, she is no longer in our lives (not the first or only argument we had.)

If we did, poor Charlie D would have left us a long time ago. When his spelling is so far off, I will privately send him the correct spelling. He really is trying to learn our language. Not the easiest language to learn. I can't help but love Charlie. I have had some really good laughs at some of his spelling. And he willingly puts up with my corrections. Bless his heart.

You are all welcome to correct my spelling But i do not think it has anything to do with English. I am a horrible speller no matter what language I write in. Russian, Ukrainian, Spanish back in school and college, now English.
I appreciate being corrected. Believe it or not I love to spell words properly, I just cannot.
