    Spelling Alterations

    Recently I have been getting alterations made to my posts because of the way I spell. Personally, it does get annoying as for my degree I got confused with the American way of spelling and with the British way of spelling, it caused me too loose marks and ever since I have stubborn to continue to spell the British way as I am British and don't see the need to start spelling here in American.

    So it is really necessary to use American spelling here on AO or am I allowed to continue to post using British spelling?

    Am I the only one who's posts get changed or does it happen to others too?

    You are not alone girl.. I have got some of my posts corrected too. I think unless is lazy typing or leet, editing other members posts for spelling is overboard...

    I get mine edited too…can’t say I care about that though…As far as my editing of others I normally only correct really bad spelling (rare) or a mistaken reference (I.E. Some says “She” instead of a “He”)

    I have no problem with how anyone spells. If thats the way you were taught then so be it. I haven't had anyone change spelling on any of my post as of yet (or to my knowledge) but it doesn't sound fair.

    Our love will go on until the end of time. I will always be yours and you will be mine.

    Well let's find out who did it.

    Honestly there could only be a handful of people

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    Legend really wants to know huh??

    Gallcomp, I agree as long as its to correct lazy typing spelling errors or even because you know what they tried to spell but they didn't quite get it right.
