    Online Posting


    New to the board and have a question. I'm just wondering if you'd be able to use the word "Hear" while posting online. For instance, if I were to tell someone that I don't care to hear what the have to say, would it technically be an incorrect usage of the word since I'm not hearing anything but more so reading?

    I can't see anything wrong with using 'hear' in that case- we often use it for things that didn't come to us as sound.
