    I was a grammar nazi years ago. I've since calmed down as I realise not everyone is from the same country on the internet. They can't possibly all be expected to know all the tricks of the English language. As long as I can make out what a person was trying to say, I'm cool with it.

    Would have been funnier had it not been for all the swearing. It wasn't that funny. There's only two things that bug me, I don't mind the whole "y r u" thing or anything like that, but what does bug me is this:

    When people don't use capitals. I don't know why, but I just get irritated. There's one rule I live by when it comes to capitals:

    Capitalization is the difference between "helping jack off the horse," and "helping Jack off the horse."

    The second thing that bugs me, is when people use "alot".
    alot =/= a lot.

    I think there are two different "kinds" of miswriters:
    1st) The ones who are from another contry and often make mistakes (like myself).
    2nd) The ones who are lazy native english speakers, who just like to abbreviate even more everything. And this happens in all countries.

    Aside from that, interesting "article", just to many swearing...

    I hate it when people say "anyways" instead of "anyway".

    I hate it when people do not know the difference between "stationary" and "stationery".

    ugh

    I hate people that are able to write English, but choose not to. If you can do it, why not do it?

    That's a shallow way of thinking. I would think that you're making a joke, but I choose not to and think that instead.

    Anyways - informal way of saying "anyway'
    Stationary - not changing stations/positions
    Stationery - crappy paper that girls use to write letters and stuff like that


    oh and @KingdomBlade:
    You know what's worse? Forcing yourself to write English even though you can't.
    "Hello. my Name is !@#%*., One of my friend recommend me these site,"


    @TechnoWorm:
    seriously. -_-
    shut up

    You are being a huge ass right now.

    Why is this in General-Off Topic Chat anyway? It seems so much more.... EOF-y.
