YES THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME IN GAME! Trying to figure out what someone is trying to say sometimes, gives me a headache!

Not cool.
There may be players who have learning disabilities or are dyslexic or have trouble at times communicating due to circumstances beyond their control.
I'm pretty sure we can figure out what each other is trying to say in game.

Also, try to remember; it's what you're "hearing" in character, not reading.

Yes, some of us correct typo's when we technically, don't need to. Guilty.

We also have to consider some players go against grammar rules on purpose. They use spelling and grammar errors specifically because they are creating an attitude, inflexion or accent unique to their character.

Yes I understand that, some people have disabilities, which is another reason why maybe we should have it? I also understand that we are to figure out what they are trying to say since we are not "reading" it; however, there are times I don't understand. Then it makes me feel dumb and them when I stand there in game going "huh?"

This wouldn't be just for the grammar Nazi's, it would help those that do have spelling problems/disabilities OR even fat fingers!

This game is mostly text base...

"I misheard you, can you repeat that?"

"Your accent is very strong, I didn't catch that."

Nothing stupid about asking for clarification. I do it all the time with my Hispanic in-laws when I'm trying to understand stuff over the phone :P
