I'm back from a two-year BE absence and I decided to dive back in starting with this thread. Well worth it. Man, have I missed this.

Not to pursue this, but what do my typos have to do with common sense??

You're forgetting the arch supports. They provide great arch support, I've heard some say it's golden!

Given your self-proclaimed superiority, you'd think it would be common sense to use the 'preview' button before posting, so you don't come off like some average Joe unable to type or spell.

For the average poster, typos are not something to focus on but for someone who makes a point of telling us just how 'above average' they are, it is rather amusing. I wonder what the people in 'your circles' would think!
