    Why not join a class where spelling is taught.

    I am not taking the mick, only stating a fact. Looking at many of the topics posted on the org. it is obvious that spelling, punctuation and grammar are no longer taught in our schools. In bygone days education in Scotland and Caithness in particular was the envy of many a country throughout the world but our education is now lagging well behind other countries. This could be contributed to our education system forever being tampered with by Governments and so called "experts". Hopefully common sense will prevail and we can once again achieve an education system to be proud of.

    It appears your discounting they possibility of dyslexia.

    To answer the original post, my hobby is writing music and poetry
    I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore

    I think you need a hobbie to take the attraction away from other peoples punctuation and spelling. Heard of paragraphs?

    Anyway i like cooking, drawing and then eating the food i cooked whilst admirning my drawings. Haha.

    If you are into more "extreme" sports then why not try white water rafting. I used to enjoy rock climbing and absailing back in my younger days.

    I agree that some people may have dyslexia but not everyone on the org. posting their comments (which can sometimes have numerous spelling errors) suffer from that condition. Some people use text-speak. What is taught in schools nowadays? The three R's appear to have fallen by the wayside -- some children are not even able to read and write when they go to high school -- in this day and age there must surely be a failing somewhere.
    One thing I am not short of is hobbies -- the problem is finding time to do justice to them all.

    Reading, exercising, listening or playing new music you've never heard or played before, cook a new dish in the kitchen. Or type random things on wiki, you never know what you may find...

    As someone has said before, there is a long list of hobbies to do, the questions you need to ask yourself are; Do i want and indoor or outdoor hobby? Do I want something more craft like or would i prefer to paint? Would I be happy collecting or would i prefer to cook? answer yourself these questions(and probably more to boot) and by process of elimination you will have your answer. For instance, if you want to do something outside, do you want to get wet? if not then you know windsurfing, surfing, kayaking, sailing, white water rafting, scuba-diving, snorkling and climbing up waterfalls will be out. shimples

    Am I not entitled to air my views on the Org. without being shot down in flames? I was only stating a fact. There are many contentious subjects posted on the Org. -- something which I am not totally against as it gives people the opportunity to discuss the topic.

    In my humble opinion there are many good topics posted on the Org. open to reasoned discussion but on the other hand there are some posts which are an insult to a person's intelligence. Thankfully these are in the minority.

    You are more than entitled to air your views stewart4364, I just don't understand why you should choose a thread where someone is making a general enquiry about hobbies to discuss same ?

    I'll give you a wee bit of advice, if you click on the "General" forum and then begin a new thread of your own, with regards to spelling, punctuation and other grammatical theories you may wish to discuss, then I'm quite sure that Orgers would be more willing to listen to you !!!

    Otherwise please just leave well alone !!!!!!!! (IMO)
