2760 Do you sic or spell?

I can't help it. Usually when I quote someone (block, chop, drop and link), I correct the spelling, typos and grammar errors of the original, because I'm not sure the reader of my blog will ever click over. What do you do? And do you go back and correct your own typos if you find them later--after they've already oozed into the various blog finders "as is," forever embedded in cyber-cement? I do, unless it's in the title, and then that would throw it off in the various finding links. Recently I quoted a published columnist and spiffed up the quote a bit. It's a librarian thing, I think.

So maybe I should have been a Librarian? ;-)

I do that too... and not only that. I have a bad habit of correcting people when they pronounce word wrong or use them wrong...

It must be very annoying for them, but I can't help it, my brain just spit it out before I know what I'm saying...*blushing*

Most of the time I correct - unless it adds spice to the posting. Sometimes I don't find my errors since I don't always double check.
