DizRotus Posted March 12, 2006 Share Posted March 12, 2006 (edited) It's definite not definate! The word "finite" is the foundation of "definite." To the best of my knowledge, there is no such word as "finate," i.e., there are no such words as "definate" or "definately." I know spelling doesn't count and some of the best information comes from members who couldn't spell correctly at gunpoint, but it's getting difficult to decipher some of the more creative spellings on the forum. If you type your posts into a Word document, use spell-check and then paste the edited text into your post (EDIT: or use the forum's less user friendly spell-check as Moon suggests below), many of the more common mistakes would definitely be eliminated. Unfortunately, spell-check wont catch the improper use of your and you're or their and there, as each is a correctly spelled word. Fortunately, its easy to figure out what the writer intended. Sometimes its an enjoyable challenge trying to guess what the misspelled words were meant to be. Other times its a PITA and the temptation is to ignore a post that might contain valuable, albeit misspelled, information. OK, enuff wranting. Deafinittlee injoi the rest've you're weakind.
