To the list....I would like to know what professionalism is....A
Misspelled word? It seems to me that many on this list have so much time
on their hands to cut down someone, say mean things about another, etc. <snip>
I ask again, what is professionalism? And who gives a hoot
about the spell check. This time I ask publicly for your opinion and the
reason to make this list worth staying on....
Speak on....But try to be kind.

You asked for PUBLIC opinion. OK:
Professionalism starts with POLITENESS, which encompasses:
a) Using spell checks:
By using spell check you ARE polite to the recipient and do not
"hit him" into the face. Using spell check, so easy to use these
days (I would not say that I or my computer spell check are perfect though).
Indeed it DOES make a bad and unprofessional impression
on the reader of the message if the text is (full of) mistakes
which are "obvious".
b) Cutting off the "tails" of the messages:
To cut down the "tails" of the messages sent, especially if one was
politely asked off-list to do so to due to some readers having to
pay for every bit and byte online AND because "many on this list"
do NOT "have so much time on their hands to" go through all the
mails time and time again.
