I'll start this off by saying that, I'm not adverse to critical comments, just these one type of them in particular.

People seem to get so hung up on words that I have spelt or just typed incorrectly.

The most recent one is over me typing arm instead or army. The commenter has felt the need to copy a chunk of the fic, then bombard me with a ton of questions.

I seem to get this incredibly often, but in this case it is worse, because I specifically mentioned that my fic isn't beta'd yet as beta's pc is broken.

But in general it makes me feel stupid.

If I've write an actual correct word in the place of what I mean to type, I'm almost certainly never going to notice. And passive aggressive comments are of literally no help.

If you want to point out something wrong, sure go ahead, but don't load it in a deprecating manner. And please if you do be specific, generalities are all well and good, but they're something I struggle to actually be able to apply to my own work.

Fuck 'em, Narlth. Maybe they should spend more time writing their own fics rather than nitpicking other people's. And you know, there is so much more to writing than SPaG, you have a gift for storytelling that many people who can spell do not have, so fuck the fuckers, what do they know?Winston Churchill was dyslexic, so was Einstein, and Jane Austen couldn't spell for nuts – it never stopped them.

Yeah, that kind of nitpicking gets super tiresome. I'm all for a simple 'hey, I think you typed X when you meant Y' but there's no need to turn it into a sermon. :P

Yes agreed! It's the sermon that's annoying
