    I guess I am. It's so weird seeing someone else in High school misspelling incredibly simple words. It just comes easy to me......

    I even won the- wait for it- 2ND GRADE SPELLING BEE! Lol, I think I won on "galaxy," or "universe," or something like that. I won a small journal, a pad of paper, and a few pencils. Woo-hoo.

    I've been a good speller since elementary school. We would have small class spelling contests, and I would win them alot.

    I'm actually pretty good at spelling. I got a very high score on my ITED's.

    I was always pissed off that my school didn't have a spelling bee. I was the fucking best. I love watching the Scripps-Howard National Spelling Bee (is it just Scripps, now? Not sure).

    Really, it's just part of my love of language and grammar. I just think it's fascinating that one word can describe an incredibly complex concept.

    Using language properly is important to me, which is why I love the recent introduction of spelling bees into pop culture (Spellbound, Bee Season, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, etc).

    I finished 7th in a MA state spelling bee in 8th grade and would always win when we had little class spelling bees.

    As others have said, I find it so strange that people can't spell such easy words; it's just natural for some, I guess.

    Spelling is not a show of intelligence. It's a show of memory.

    Not really. If you have to spell a word you have never seen, then you have to be able to sound it out and think of what different letter combinations will produce the prounciation sound.

    I am not into spelling bee's, but to me the words and the language of English comes so easy to me. I was always top of my class in Grammar and Spelling.

    Its just on forums people sometimes type really fast a fumble their words. Its like if I was to beign starttt typing this sentecnec realyl fastg it would get sfcrambeld.

    And I don't really care about punctuation, but if everyone in this forum took interest in their spelling errors it would be a better forum.

    FireFox2 and their is an extension for original FF and IE to get a spell checker that works in reply boxes for forums.

    Oh, the irony!

    I'm good at spelling myself. I won my 8th grade spelling bee. It really fucking pisses me off when people like the asshole I quoted misspell "a lot" and use "there" out of context. It really gets to me when people don't know simple grammar rules.

    Seem cool in front of ebaumsworld?
    All I was suggesting was that you talked about how good you were at spelling and then you made a 5th grade mistake. Stop taking offense so easily.

    I believe you need a hyphen in that "misspell".

    No, in the first one, it says this:

    You got it wrong and the website changed it for you.

    EDIT: Oh no, I might have made a mistake there. You might have been right.
