Ok you know who you are! Nickname rhymes with Ipod....

Why do you ptey klei thsi (type like this)?

Someone told me it was some sort of joke but I'm clearly not in on it and find it hard to decipher your posts. Please let me in on it as it is quite strange!!

I find it really confusing too - just tend to skip her posts because too much hard work to decipher.

She's often funny tho, but half the time the jokes lost on me cos I cant be arsed trying to work it out

I'm sure she could if she tried [stern] but it's kind of her trademark now - you can instantly recognise a Cod thread, which is quite useful as they are often very funny.

btw Boo, to do proper Cod typing you need to get the spaces between the words in the wrong place as well. lik ethsi.

Cod's mistyping is the only way I can keep identifying her through her frequent name changes. If she spelt everything right, we'd never know who she was.

dont think it was meant to be funny? Think its a reasonable question which you've now answered Fio.

its just miss typing and in eagerness to send not checking!
my laptop keys often stick so miss letters put them later iyswim

boo64 Wed 08-Aug-07 14:48:51

I agree - the content is funny often but I just don't get it. I'm sticking my neck out here as Cod you are a popular gal on here me thinks!

Dropdead - I've been on here quite a long time and nope I'm not getting used to it! In fact it just annoys me more tbh!

boo64 Wed 08-Aug-07 14:51:02

p.s. surely someone clever enough to come out with a cool nickname like iCod which I think is great, can type properly!?

Fimbo Wed 08-Aug-07 14:54:21

She can type properly when she wants to.

boo64 Wed 08-Aug-07 14:55:09

There's only one way to get to the bottom of this! COD where are you!?

babygrand Wed 08-Aug-07 14:56:56

I think there are lots of people who type that way, BUT THE REST OF US CORRECT IT BEFORE WE POST THE MESSAGE. Pure arrogance in my opinion. (Although yes, you do get used to it.)

she has gone out for the day as SHE HAS A LIFE

<<shuffles work papers>>

chopster Wed 08-Aug-07 14:58:52

oliveoil Wed 08-Aug-07 14:59:14

oh another cod thread I love thes...

<<<falls asleep>>

chopster Wed 08-Aug-07 14:59:16

whoops, that was a genuine accident!

3madboys Wed 08-Aug-07 14:59:34

a bit mean singling one person out, but you dont know maybe they type quickly and are busy with a baby and dont ahve time to edit, maybe they have dyslexia or some other condition which hinders their spelling?

i personally think its a bit rude to start a thread about it.

ooh and on bmc we have an edit functon where you can post and then edit your thread for up to an hour after posting to correct mistakes, you dont have that on here do you? or am i being thick and not noticing the edit button?

Fimbo Wed 08-Aug-07 14:59:38

I thought this was a tongue in cheek thread, please don't turn it into another Cod bashing.

To quote the lady herself:-
