    Do you... preview?

    Just wondering, how many of you preview your
    messages before you post them? You know, try to
    find any spelling/grammar errors? I'm obsessed
    with it. I ususally preview my messages 3+ times
    before I actually post them. I really think I have
    some kind of OCD.


    edit: Fixed grammar stuff.

    I usually just go back and edit if it is bad enough.

    Yeh, I usually do with code just to make sure I didn't screw-up the code tags.

    Why preview when I can edit later ?

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    It depends - if it was a large post I would, but normally I just use edit.
