    I tend to ignore the posts of people who are native speakers of English and can't take the time to write properly. It's a courtesy to others to write clearly and to proofread. Besides, losing weight requires an attention to detail, so if you can't figure out or are indifferent to the difference between words like "lose" and "loose" your heart's probably not in it.

    One more thing: Don't expect people to read huge blocks of type. Create paragraphs with the "Enter" key.

    That's "insignificent" and "intended".... unless you like looking illiterate. Yes, proper spelling is important!! Many people, if not most, will automatically discount things in writing if the spelling and punctuation are substandard. Don't believe me? Try submitting a job resume full of misspellings, see what happens.....

    I can't stand seeing flagrant errors either, and I don't care for people who agressively defend their right to mangle English (or any other language) just because they don't think it's important... but this thread is clearly a joke and not a call to arms for the linguistically lazy. Lighten up!

    It was deliberately done, as a joke. Also, you misspelled "insignificant".
