Is spelling and grammar such a big problem? Is it so important on a cycling forum? or are there aspirant primary school teachers that get a kick out of belittling others over non essentials?

 

Do we attack the grammar and spelling so as to avoid the real issues?

Probably. On the other hand, poor grammar and spelling can seriously detract from whatever message the writer is trying to convey.

I hate to be a nitpicker, but the poll question asks, "Is gammar...?"

An interesting point here.

 

You are correct that if grammar and spelling are treated as two seperate concepts then the title should be "Are grammar and spelling....?" would be correct.

 

However, if we experience "grammar and spelling" as one concept or collective, (being a singular "label" to express a particular subset of skills) then the correct way to title it would be "Is grammar and spelling..."

Or else we could just make sure that "grammar" is nor spelt "gammar"

Absolutely correct my dear chap, but you are still to be informed by countless hub citizens that you have undecidedly missed the point of the suggested "nitpick". Look again with due and careful consideration for the spelling, which peaks out from the formidable topic you have proposed.. off to the polls for another look, tally ho!
