It's been said a 100 times before, and the majority here just isn't smart enough to typ like normal human beings.

English isn't my first language, so I'm having huge problems with understanding all of it. Because I didn't know how english people pronounced the C, so I couldn't know that people meant 'I see' when saying 'I c'. It's really annoying. I don't want to offend anyone, but typing cuz instead of because is pure retarded.

But oh well, people won't change. If they want to make themselves look like retards, then we can't do anything about it.

This is a casual site so there really isn't a need to be grammatically correct. I'm a college graduate and my strengths are in English language and other languages for that matter. I even tutored international students with English all the time. In a professional setting, I'm really picky about grammar and I can't stand to see errors but on a site like this...why does it even matter? This isn't a place where people need to be concerned about how well others type. I write cuz instead of because all the time but that doesn't make me illiterate by any means.

If all i see are lowercase letters with no punctuation or U instead of you i`m less likely to bother reading it but if someone has something interesting to say then i will read it anyway.It would be nice if everyone used punctuation and capital letters in the appropriate places but everyone is not the same and life would be pretty boring if i had nothing to moan about.
anyways thats wot i fink

Is it just me, or does it seem like the majority of posts on this forum look like they've been written by a 5 year old?

I don't mean to be rude to anyone, but seriously, is it so difficult to hit 'you' instead of 'u'? 'because' instead of 'cuz'? Proper grammar never hurt either. An example, 'Are Humans Evil?' topic in the General forum. The topic description is 'Well Are Us??'. Come on, thats just poor.

I understand some people posting frequently on these boards might not have a grasp of the English language like some people do, but come on. There really is no excuse to type poorly, causing all of the people who do word themselves correctly, or at least make a decent effort, to have to read something like this: "OMG, I has watced anime 2day, it wuz soo funny! i m goin 2 watch, liek, 50 moar shows, cuz itz so awsom!"

Sorry for this, but I feel it needed to be said. Unless everyone on this site is lying, and they are actually 4 year old's who can barely speak anyway, there really is no excuse for poor typing. So please, do me, and probably many other people on here a very large favor. Use the language you go to school to learn. You don't have English every year in school just so you can butcher the hell out of it as soon as your out for the day.

(PS: If English isn't your first language, and your still trying to grasp this language, than disregard what I've said... to an extent. Also, if this shouldn't be here, feel free to lock it. I just wanted as many people as possible to see how I feel.)


I'm actually pretty anal-retentive when it comes to grammar, spelling, and punctuation... Is anal-retentive hyphenated?

Creepy Brayman will grow out of his pet peeve one day. I did. This is a forum. Not an English essay. We're here as equals and friends that have similar interests, mostly anime, but other things as well. We all have things that irritate us, and we all have strengths and weaknesses and pet peeves as well.
I'm just glad there are others out here that love anime as much as I do, and that we have a great place here to talk about stuff. Long live "crunchyroll" !
I admit when I was very young, I'd give my girlfriend's notes she wrote me, back to her; corrected for grammar and spelling. ha-ha. I was a huge jerk I guess, but I just wanted her to be smarter. Was not a smart move on my part! *sigh* At least it showed I read all of the letters she wrote.
Now the only thing that irritates me is when people talk and they say aksed instead of asked. If you aksed somebody, you need to be in jail. If you asked someone, then you should have been responded to in a proper way.
Keep posting people and don't feel judged or intimidated. I appreciate you all and your opinions.

This says it all.

This is a forum. Not an English essay.

I know it maybe irritating but deal with it because...

This is a forum. Not an English essay.

And in forums, there will always be people who either honestly have a problem with their grammar since they're not used to it or who are just 200% retarded because they think that messing their grammar is cool.

Now move on with your life because no matter what you do, it'll be pointless and very retarded of you to continue pursuing such trivial matters in the internet. Just ignore them but if you really want to convince them to use proper grammar then go to them individually and point a gun to their balls(males)/face(females) pointblank and tell them to use proper grammar while posting on the internet.

Well...
It just depends for me!
I use 'LOL' a lot!
And 'w/' and a few little things like that...
But mainly I stick to typing the whole word.
But ya never know!
I don't know if I ever have complete sentences though!
So that is a lil bit of a problem.
