( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
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

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
