    What happens if...

    ... I correct the fifth spelling mistake in a recently-made post?

    Does the person being replied to get five, better-spelled-each-time, copies of my post?
    Or is there a "oops time" period before it is assumed that the poster has got it right?
    At last.
    Oh, [expletive deleted], just one more time...

    AFAIK the person getting replied to just gets the first version of your reply. The latest of your other versions is simply the one that remains "online" for posterity.

    John you worry to much. I from East Texas, spell it anyway ya want and I can read it. Were I come from ya spell as best you can or like it sounds and nobody cares. Of course if a stranger made fun of the way they talked or spelled thier words, the next thing the stanger was doing, was looken for his teeth or a jar to put the new ones in. <img src=/S/bif.gif border=0 alt=bif width=70 height=28> Those Country boys, it's a different world. Of course ya gotta understand, a horse don't much care if you can spell, and cattle , well they don't need to know how to spell Meat Plant, cause then they might get mighty hard to catch.

    It's Mr. Gray that worries too much. I already know that I'm a great speller, but a terrible typist. The letters get all jumbled up as they go through my shoulders because of rotator cuff damage. Nothin I can do about it. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/duck.gif border=0 alt=duck width=23 height=23> <img src=/S/flee.gif border=0 alt=flee width=25 height=25>

    No wonder your wife uses the whip on you, calling her a mug, indeed! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
