    So using myself as a target example, I could refer to someone who named themselves "God's Truth" as "GT" but an alternate spelling of "GE" (for "Great Ego") would be out of line.

    Hopefully, GT is spreading her 'false doctrine' elsewhere.

    "GT" is fine. It's a acronym for a username. It isn't an insult. What this thread is addressing is insulting or belittling perversions of usernames.

    2. FIFY --Fixed it For you. It is the practice of altering a person's post in the quotes to change it's meaning. TOL members did this quite a bit.

    In my early years here I have been guilty of both. I have discovered that large healthy websites have rules against Name Warping and FIFY. They are conversation killers.

    Just don't do it. It does not help dialog when users do this.
    I prefer "FTFY" (Fixed that for you)... But that's not why I'm quoting your post.

    My question is this:

    Is it alright to fix grammar and spelling mistakes in the person's post we're quoting provided that instead of removing the bad spelling/grammar, we leave it in the quoted post, but put the [STRIKE][/STRIKE] tags around the bad grammar/spelling and put the correction before/after it?

    For example, Keypurr for whatever reason can't learn to use "you're" instead of "your", and vice versa. Would it be fine to do this?:

    . . . blablablabla your you're blablablabla . . .

    Not
    acceptable. Abbreviations like GM are acceptable, but no alteration of the name that changes its meaning is acceptable unless the the alternation is meant as a compliment.

    I can't even count all of the times that I've been called "Wrong Divider".

    It's a good thing that that is wrong.

    I hope not, because I certainly can't call her "God's Truth". Perhaps I can remember to leave it at a simple GT instead of God's Untruth, but I'm not so sure. It feels like blasphemy to me.
