For serious, VDOT?


No spellcheck on the old Sign-o-Matic? Come on, these signs have a cumulative vocabulary of about 30 words--is it that hard to spell them correctly?

when i was in 7th grade, my mom and i stole a road sign from cape hatteras that read "MEN WORKNIG"

she felt it was our civic duty.

Pepper, you have become the grammer and spelling secret police. I bet Iranians are less afraid of reading a New York Times then I am of posting on this site for fear of the red correction pen wielding facist state you have created. Spelling and grammer, like our national defense, the economy, and calculating 20% tips are the responsibility of computers now. Therefore, I do not need to know how any of it works. That's called progress.

Pete, you're taking a stand, and I can appreciate that. But I can't let it slide; it's a kind of sloppiness that's sneaking into our lives, and if we don't hold people to account, we start letting other standards slide too.

Technology is good shit, but it should enhance and ease our lives, not bring our guards down.

I spelled grammar wrong. Viva la revolucion.

I'm more worried about the pavemantis, a destructive parasite that resides in the pores of poorly paved asphalt.
