Please check your spelling when you ask for information about a certain area in NOVA. It's Loudoun and not Louden or Loudon. It's not Mannassas. If I were going to visit a board and ask for information on an area I would certainly want to spell it right.

That is all.

Wow, would have thought you would politely replied and spelled it correctly rather than reprimand.

Centreville, not Centerville! And I don't even live there.

I cut people visiting from other regions some slack. But when someone who lives in the area constantly and insistently misspell regional names...

Really... a post just to rant about a name misspelling?
