in reply to Guidance Requested: Spelling in Titles?

Personally, I don't mind the reminder if (at least in the title my spelling mistakes or even wording mistakes) are pointed out. My spell check on my browser saves me most of the time, but not always. Last night I actually mis-typed a title which was pointed out to me fairly quickly. The point was made that searching that node would go a lot better if I modified it. I appreciate it.

On the other hand, when one gets down into the body of the post, that is a different story. Been speaking English all my life and am married to a lady for whom English is a second language. It is pretty tough to get the spelling/grammar correct even for me. I suspect the occasional reminder won't be offensive, but if the node is readable, I think it would be best left alone.

My vote is title = yes, anywhere else, probably not.

Just my $0.02

[jdporter]: I for one think it's kind of ridiculous that people can't ask - here - other people for help just because it involves monetary compensation.
[jdporter]: I think the test for whether to push it to should be strict: (a) you're looking for employment, or (b) you're looking to hire an employee or contractor.
