Everyone seems to be calling themselves Grammar Nazi, so why don't we all make an official club! It's for people who try to spell and punctuate properly when they type. So just put Official Grammar or Grammer Nazi in your sig and join the club!

First of all, there should be no punctuation in the title of the thread. It's a title.

That should be a question mark.

Did you just type "Grammer"? Tell me that was a mistake. Oh Mutilation, why have you forsaken me?

You just do what it says, put in in your sig (or title if you can do that here) Your grammar seems alright. And I put Grammer because you get places like Where Commie Grew Up Grammer School that confuses me blink.gif

We haven't got a symbol yet, if anyone wants to make one (no swastika please, even though it's for good purposes it still shouldn't be used).

Or even better, a competition!

I've been called a grammer Nazi before. But when it comes to typing, I kinda do the "err.. yeah.. uh..oh yeah!!". Do the typing what you think thing. I'm only a grammer Nazi when it comes to double negatives and the horrible southern dialect. -=shudders=- Like "ya'll", I die every time I hear that. I would put it on my sig, but, I don't know how. I am sad, I'll have Ri teach me tongue.gif

Well, I did say I would prefer to be a grandma nazi, so I'm using dementia as my excuse for lapsing into a bout of poor punctuation. (omits exclaimation mark) wink.gif

I'm an elipses whore, I swear. I find it adds a really nice tone and makes a sentence seem a little more like real speech. It can convey a sense of hesitation or thoughtfulness. I use them to a ridiculous level, just like I do with commas.

I certainly have an... unusual... sense of grammar, but I'm still a Fascist about it!

I agree with that. I don't usually pick at grammar (as far as I know), but in this thread I just think it's appropriate and as I have nothing else to do, it provides brief moments of, erm, stuff to do. I also agree about the elipsis thing (note spelling: 'elipses' is plural laugh.gif ), and I use them quite a lot. But I'm bored. Sorry.

Just joking. I wasn't sure as I was referring to something I'd already said. But if you're right, then touché.

This thread scares me. I mean, in general, I conform to the wishes of the grammar Nazis; I did just check on dictionary.com to see if that was the correct pluralization of Nazi, I used google to spell check 'pluralization' (which I got wrong the first time round - my spelling sucks) and I always double check my posts for spelling and grammar mistakes. However I like to use elipses, 'kinda' and brackets within brackets (oohh... and multiple question and exclamation marks!!!), so I wouldn't exactly call myself a grammar Nazi. I am a kinda annoyed about 'i' capitalization (I mean 'I'm' takes, what, point three more seconds than 'im'?) and StIcKy CaPs make me wince, but I wouldn't call myself obessive... unsure.gif do you think I'm obessesive? I'll leave it up to you guys to insult my spelling and grammar or accuse me of being anal-retentive (or both, there's a range of people on this forum, I'm sure I could get insulted about both). Anyway, I've been going on and on (and on and on) a bit, so I'll shut up.

Edit: If the grammar Nazis are gunna (I use that too tongue.gif) have a mascot, it should be Strong Bad, singing grammar Nazi extraordinaire! In my opinion anyway.

*cough* 'grammer' was never there, you were just imagining it and I did not just edit it out. ph34r.gif *cough*

Oh, my spelling is terrible. I find that I want to use big words that mean big things, but I don't know how to spell them, so I'm reduced to using 2 or 3 smaller words to convey one word. That's my main problem in all my writing--it's full of crap. I always over use words, or add in words that don't belong or aren't need. *Sigh* t'is the bane of my existence, as I am a writer and want to follow with a career in literature. I could've written this paragraph in about 3 sentences, but I have no skillz.
I agree with the things about capitalization you talked about. im sayin, MaKeS mE sIcK tOo.

But I'm not a grammar Nazi, things just piss me off when people don't take the time to write them correctly. When I want to say things like kinda, I do. Sorta, kinda, not really. Words like "kinda" that I use in every day speech I don't bother about in typing, because everyone knows what I mean.

Honey! You spelled grammar wrong at the end of your post! But I must say, you're not as anal as some people. In fact, since you're just about as anal as me, I'd say you're perfect.
