Can You Read This?

When you're IMing people, do you go back and correct every mistake you make in spelling, transpositions, and grammer? Do you point out the error on the next line with an asterick? Do you assume the person can't figure it out? Just an observation, but see how fast you can read the next paragraph.

The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

It depends on who I'm talking to and if my typo still made sense. I rarely correct with you :-) And yeah, I had no problems reading that :-)
