This has been bugging me for absolutely ages. I get SO tired of people typing like they don't know where the caps lock or shift key is. Is there some kind of problem here? Are you so loathe to spend a few extra seconds of your endless hours online typing decently? Because it's worth it - I have so much more respect for people who bother to type according to the laws of grammar, spelling and semantics, and I'm not the only one. You look so much more intelligent if you type like an adult and not like a dylexic six-year-old. Really you do!

And no, I don't mind people who slip up, or who don't bother with capitals all of the time, or with people with a decent excuse (like being a dyslexic six-year-old), but when I can barely read what you have posted it really gets my goat.
Is it so much effort to take a little care when typing (don't answer the rhetorical question!)? It even becomes automatic after a while! There's little or no effort involved! Just please take the time and prove yourself to be more than a lazy imbecile - for the sake of the English language and my sanity.
Thankyou. <- See the full-stop? Now worship it.

i happen to agree. even though i tend to not capitalize sentences and such, i don't enjoy deciphering posts written so poorly that i don't even want to write an example(besides, i'm lazy)

however, i don't see why you're bringing it up here. i've not seen a single post at this board (and i've been readinga LONG time) where truly hideous grammer/spelling was used. but i guess it was just a general rant...still, it seems pointed to people here *shrug*

and yes, since your post was on perfection in language, 'thankyou'? 2 words, deary...but you knew that

(all said in light manner, not at all bitchy...that's why i sometimes hate the net)

It's okay when you Instant Message somebody, but some people go overboard. I have one friend that's so bad with it, I can't understand what she's writing. Sometimes, I admit, I do it though. ph34r.gif

So its the spelling and grammar that your getting mad at, give us an example of a post that you have been unable to read in the result of the poster using bad spelling and grammar? I cant really comment unless I see an example of this

OK, Steel, you just presented me with a prime example. I have no idea what that second sentence (well, it's barely a sentence - just sort of separated by a comma) meant. Could you rephrase that slightly better? You know, using the real rules of grammar, and not the Steelian ones?

makes perfect sense to me...people just speak differently, typing the way you speak is good. it provides for more natural conversations. 'sides, i don't see and blatant misuse of grammer.

i already pointed out the thankyou thing, i don't reallly feel like pointing out any more mistakes in your post(or previous posts) but if need be... tongue.gif

I admit that I'm not word-perfect, but my writing is usually comprehensible. I don't really mind people using ellipsises or non-capitalised letters all of the time. The occasional slip-up is only human, but writing consistently badly is so unnecessary and annoying.


And thankyou is so how it is written. And the OED agrees with me - so ner!

laugh.gif Hey, I didn't know that it bugged you that much. And although I normally try to use correct grammar, I sometimes get too lazy and don't. So, I'll try to do my part by being grammatically correct from now on. Okies? biggrin.gif

then why did you feel the need to call the Cherub on her 'mistake' (as it wasn't really)...? if it was one tiny mistake in the midst of none others, why did you need to bring attention to it?

i just don't use capitals. otherwise, i think i'm fine. and capitals..... i just don't like them. i don't like my letters suddenly magically changing every time i press that shift key. and why must it be larger than the other letters? is it THAT important? stupid arrogant shift key. well, i refuse to press it to counter its arrogance! tongue.gif

does that qualify as a decent excuse?

Because she entered the dreaded Hypocrisy Zone.


Gerb, you're usually a decent conversationalist. Sure, as supreme ruler of the STYLR Association I grant you full immunity.
But really, I'm not going to set a code or anything. I just happen to be an outspoken grammar-Nazi. And don't expect me to judge everyone like I did Gerbil. Judging is fun, but I really don't have that kind of authority.

I'm sure everyone's noticed how obsssed with correct spelling and grammer I am (I think I'm the only one on this board who uses the word "whom" or semicolons instead of comma splices). However, I don't knock others for improper spelling or grammer. I can understand folks just fine on this board. I get annoyed sometimes (I have some OCD tendencies; it runs in my family) but I really don't think it's something to which one should dedicate a whole thread.

When did you judge Gerbil in this thread? blink.gif The only person I saw you judging was cherub.

Or was that comment directed to Gerbil? Maybe you meant to say, "And don't expect me to judge everyone like I did, Gerbil." I'm not really sure what you're saying here because in the context of the thread you've never passed judgement on Grebil, yet the way you constructed your sentence, without a comma between "did" and "Gerbil," clearly indicates that you are not addressing him directly.

Could you please clarify your meaning.

Are you? Really?

I was the spelling and grammar Nazi way before you ever stepped foot on this board. Watch whose territory you're treading on, fool.

Oh, and it's grammar for a start.

By the way... this thread was supposed to be somewhat funny. It's in the Daft forum! Chrissakes, quit taking it so effing seriously.

Don't worry syuu, I'm not going to be some kind of self-elected, witch-hunter general of a grammar Nazi. But, I will have to spank you and tie you up if you continue to type in such an awful manner. Same to you, Missy. Ya hear me!?
