I agree somewhat with your statement, "replies tend to be off the cuff and full of inacuracies, mispellings, gramatical errors and shallow thoughts/research," however, I do find some of the posts/replies to be backed by information available in the literature and even though I don't always agree, I do find them thought provoking. We're not (hopefully not being too presumptuous), including myself, academic researchers or historians but individuals who enjoy discussing a topic which interests us. So hopefully people who view my posts would be forgiving in reading the more serious of my posts.
In one of his letters shortly after Gettysburg to I believe Halleck, Lincoln kept misspelling a certain word which the post went on to say was a frequent mistake of his part. Thus, grammatical errors, misspellings, etc., have been with us for centuries and to go one further probably missed points, misstated facts, etc. IF ONLY OUR ANCESTORS COULD HAVE HAD THE EDIT KEY.
