Ha...we used to be called 'grammar nazis' but now there's a real reason for it.

I've generally always proofread; I like to be understood.

There have been times when I've skipped over things I should've caught and didn't after proofing; I can't win :) Oh well....

punctuation and word placement is also important . eat grammy? hope not . Since all we have are words here, I often read something out loud to see how it will sound

Very true. Sometimes, however, I make the mistake even though I know better but I'm in a hurry and, naturally, don't notice is until I hit "send."

I hate it when I make a typo, sometimes I have enough time to correct it, though.

Sometimes errors will go unnoticed ... but some can totally destroy your intended meaning! (a)

Whenever I make a typo online I am pretty sure this occurs (wary). It doesn't bother me if someone makes a mistake. I don't get paid to proofread their stuff or mine. Plus it requires me to actually care (biggrin)

For me it is, anyway. I'm always leaving words out that I intended to and thought I typed or wrote. Sometimes I catch it when "proofreading", but often I don't. (redface)

They were using phonetics before it was a thing.

Actually, Mr Lewis was well-educated.

However; phonetic, non-standard spelling was nothing unusual in those days. Nobody even proposed a standard method of spelling in America until Noah Webster’s Speller came out in 1783.

I agree with that. I can't spell well so I always proofread, sometimes I still miss a mistake, but hey I really try.
