Only when using quotes, spoilers, or other formatting, otherwise no, which is evident by my many typos.

Sometimes, if I'm making a huge post with lots of embedded stuff in, yeah. I also type with tags, so the preview is a good way to make sure they're all closed properly and the message is formatted correctly.

All of ya that post youtube videos should so you can test whether or not it plays when embedded on era.

If it doesn't, include a link.

When I'm just posting text, no. When I'm adding quotes and spoilers and otherwise making a post with formatting, yeah usually. Not previewing this one for example and send

As others have stated, if it's more than two sentences I hit preview, even if the post still only consists of text.
I always proofread and edit what I write however, sometimes multiple times, it's just ingrained in me.

I write my post, I proofread the preview, then I post it and edit it like 500 times.

Mods must be shaking their heads when they decide to read through my edits.

I never do, but probably should. I'm a serial editor fixing typos and adding additional context instead.
