    how about when you're just responding to them?

    for example: http://theologyonline.com/showthread...=1#post5270159
    LOL. I've done that too.

    Proofreading one's own post before posting it is also a good idea, so that one can catch any mistakes.

    Thanks for the response.

    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?:

    I suppose if a liberal said that about Trump, it would be "speaking truth to power" (the new liberal mantra).

    That was my realization as well. There's an oh-so-important difference between saying you value "God's Truth" and proclaiming yourself "God's Truth" to the extent that when someone disagrees with you the response becomes "You're opposing God's Truth!"

    And here I was getting a bit attached to "Dazed".
