    Perhaps maybe some people have difficulty spelling? I think it is obvious who people mean.

    It might not be "that hard" for you or me but perhaps it is for others.

    "Russel" Latapy is the one that used to give me a twitch. Even worserer, the EEN couldn't even get his name right when he was linked with Hibs ; Russel Lataps they called him (to be fair Lataps was generally how folk referred to him back in the day, e.g if they had spoken to his agent, for example, he was called "Lataps").

    Some people have difficulty crossing the road. Moral: take extra care when you're doing it. Agree that it is obvious who people mean.

    Archie Macpherson used to annoy me with his pronunciation of Latapy. He always put the emphasis on the second Ďaí and it sounded so stupid, not to mention disrespectful, as he must have heard every man and his dog get it right.

    Archie Macpherson took it to new levels of mispronunciation with "Adrian Sproule".

    I have dyslexia, I proof read everything I write before I post it but sometimes things slip through. When it gets pointed out I try and make a joke of it but it does sometimes make me feel like Iím an idiot. Itís not because I donít Ďtake extra careí itís because I canít see the error I have made. To me it looks normal. Which is more embarrassing when it is pointed out.

    Pretty certain this is not about me but Iím just trying to give an idea as to how these things might happen and effect others have when you deem it appropriate to slag them. I however can count on one hand how many times this has happened to me on .net and Iíve been a member since I was a teenager.

    I have dyslexia, I proof read everything I write before I post it but sometimes things slip through. When it gets pointed out I try and make a joke of it but it does sometimes make me feel like I’m an idiot. It’s not because I don’t ‘take extra care’ it’s because I can’t see the error I have made. To me it looks normal. Which is more embarrassing when it is pointed out.

    Pretty certain this is not about me but I’m just trying to give an idea as to how these things might happen and effect others have when you deem it appropriate to slag them.

    for making the effort and, apologies, there was no intention to slag off people who like you do make an effort. Quite the reverse - I believe the misspelling of people's names on here is largely because people can't be bothered, on the grounds that it doesn't really matter because it's clear who is being talked about. Which is true, it usually is clear, but not caring about spelling is a slippery slope, the bottom of which is the end of civilisation as we know it. (Already there's generations of people who don't know which way to pass port round a table!)

    Like I said itís a rare thing to happen on here for me. But it has happened. As for players names. I thank google, I have to google most of our non uk players to get the correct spelling of their names haha

    Good point. My kids have dyslexia and sometimes I forget myself and get irritated when I see their written work. We should all try to be more forgiving about spelling imo. I often think that when I was at school dyslexia wasn't really a thing and my kids would've been chucked in a remedial class until they were old enough to leave at 15 and do a badly paid job. Things have improved, thankfully.

    I'd be pronouncing that "McGee-och" with the last bit as in "och aye the noo" but I've heard a couple of people on the wireless say "m'goosh". Is McGeouch a trick name like Belvoir, Marjoribanks and that? How does Dylan pronounce it?

    My niece has dyslexia and when she was at Uni I seem to recall she had some sort of special keyboard.It may have been an early form of auto correct and was a huge help to her.

    Nothing worse than folk that want to go around slagging people for not being able to spell correctly, or correcting folks words when its so obvious what they actually meant anyway. I think most folk that do this probably had a hard childhood and wasnt very popular as a youth, now trying to make themselves feel better in life by going around laughing at folks spelling, ****ing sad losers. Get a a grip of yourselfs, pathetic

    Correct. Also my daughters uni gave her free software, and those tinted lenses also help to sort out that 'letter jumble' effect dyslexics often report.
