    No.
    He says he has a broken keyboard, and repetitive stress injury (in hist wrist(s) I assume).

    He wrote once that he was. He said it was to such an extent that he couldn't use spell-check because he didn't know which word to choose from the menu.
    I think his mind just starts moving too fast for his hands. That's how you get words missing entire syllables.

    Like "candates", for example.

    Uhm, I don't think so. He repeated the mistake only on several words but consistently.
    Had he just type too fast, the mistake would have been random. He typed the
    words just the way it sounds. I guess it relates to the habit that he got his major
    information from listening to the radio. Do you notice how he used to start a
    thread or argument with 'I lissioned it from ABC, etc..'.

    Several words that he consistently typed:
    - lissioning (listening)
    - surpose (suppose)
    - likly (likely)
    - concider (consider)
    - possable (possible)
    - offence (offense)
    - rember (remember)
    - belive (believe)
    - funtion (function)
    - negitive (negative)
    - concervitive (conservative)
    - hedrosexual (heterosexual)
    - symple (simple)
    - resorces (resources)
    etc

    He never, for example, wrote 'suppose' as 'supose', he wrote it consistently
    as 'surpose'. So, it's not a random typing. If you don't believe me, just put
    those keywords above in the searching engine here.

    If he worked just on the certain words above, such as typing 'listening' instead
    of 'lissioning' over and over, I think he will get used to it (to the word 'listening').

    Wow inzomnia, that's a really scientific way of looking at it. You researched certain words, came up with a pattern...impressive! :worship:

    I type 'the' as 'teh' consistently. I type it too fast. It drove Peta crazy and since she said something, I've been trying to catch it.

    Rrr... I didn't do any special research (do you think I am obsessed with Asguard? T_T).
    It's just from daily interaction. I think you also noticed that.

    Let's see, without using search engine, can you guess who will likely write this:

    1. Actaully, it's the mistake of their perants, kids don't know!!


    What about these:

    2. Everyday I wake up and than pee..
    3. were you gonna go, dude?

    You might also notice which smiley is the favorite of each member. For example:

    etc. Lol

    LOL, I guess I'm not that observant. Who's Shorty?

    I just notice the mispelling of words that are throughout the post. Especially if the word they mispell is in teh title of teh thread. (WTH!!!??) I skip a post if 5 words in there are 3 mispelled words. If a person doesn't care enough to check their spelling, then I don't care enough to read (translate) it.

    I kept typing "and" as "nad" at one point. That would have been considerable worse, had I not rectified the mistake.

    Do you type words without looking at keyboards? Because if so, even if you
    made mistake, you can quickly notice it, as your eyes are looking into your
    screen instead of into the keyboard.

    He seems to show a excellent case for it, and shouldn't be something laughed at by the expense of others.

    I sort of half look at the keyboard. I'm normally busy doing something else at the same time also. For example, I always listen to music when I possibly can, and I like to watch tv a lot also when I am on the PC.

    I tended to notice it straight away, and change it when I was finished the section I was typing.

    You use that smiley a lot, especially last year. In the beginning you were a bit
    shy and all that. Why don't check randomly your posts between July-Dec last
    year?

    What do you think of Greenberg's favorite smiley?


    I admit it made me laugh a bit (they are funny, what do you expect?

    ), but I
    didn't try to be mean, just trying to give some opinion on what I thought I perceive.
    If Asguard minds, I'll stop.

    Gotta go now, ciao.

    Asguard referring to whether he was dyslexic, or dyslectic.
    He still could be, and not know.

    Sure, it could be the most used smiley in a selection of posts, but I doubt it is overall even close to being my most used smiley.

    I need the statistics

    I don't know about Greenberg.. to be honest I don't pay attention to how much someone uses a particular smiley :shrug:

    Yea I believe that was his answer to me asking whether he was dyslexic or not..

    I still think he said it once though.. despite the fact that he denied it :shrug:

    Anyway, if he is dyslexic or has trouble spelling for some other reason I don't think it's right to keep bringing it up or even make fun of it.

    The reason why i can be offended by this,is because dyslexia is in fact linked to autism. And i myself have a mild form of autism.

    In fact, not too long ago it was over the news that experts think dyslexia is not actually real.

    Ask the millions who suffer it. It is very real.
