    How do you think you talk on the internet? Do you talk in a good, sophisticated way? Or like "OMFG WTF NOOOBS" way? Or some where in the middle?

    I've always been a mix of stuff in every possible way.

    So, yeah. Same applies to e-"talking".

    I try to type seriously and with proper grammar, spelling, punctuation. I use acronyms such as Lol and BRB, as do most people in the world, but I try to type neatly.

    Usually, I use English grammar the best I know how to.

    But when I'm talking to *SERIOUSLY* offensive trolls, I usually revert to "STFU N00B!".

    I try to keep it pretty good, unless I'm going for laughs.

    I try to write properly when I'm on the internet. But speaking... my vocab is good enough to make me not look dumb...

    I believe I type fairly well (at least clear enough to get the point across).

    The only place I don't would be the EOF.

    The thread title is ironic.

    This is not the proper place to use 'well'

    I generally try to use the best grammar I can, but occasionally, I'll stray off the path and not give a damn. I'd say 9/10 post is like the one I'm typing, while the other 1/10 is all "ungrammatical." I also occasionally change it for the fear of it looking bad, like before. It's proper to put the period inside the quotations, but sometimes I won't on purpose.

    I make a lot of mistakes while typing, but I clean them up with proofreading. Some people just don't care, though.

    I believe that my web based vocabulary is astoundingly lacking. I have the inkling that I only drift toward incredibly simple and common words. I always feel like venturing off and making use of some more scarce words, but I never act on the impulse.

    I think I talk with a pretty modest vocabulary.
    I'm by no means above average at speaking/typing the English language when speaking to the general public, but on Minecraft. Hoo-boy, i'm like a god of the English language. Though, that's due to 95% of the minecraft population being retarded.
    and I don't mean partially retarded...I mean full-on retarded.

    If you EVER want to feel like a genius with a huge vocabulary, play Minecraft SMP.

    I try to use proper grammar and correct spelling for many of my posts. I'm that type of person who rereads his posts a hundred times before posting. o.o
