Only if it's its unreadable, little mistakes here and there don't bother me. English isn't everyone's first language, so you have to keep that in mind as well.

Incorrect grammar or spelling only bothers me when it is inconsistent. For example, I often drop the subjective noun when writing up long technical documents and use either all present or past tense. It drives my coworker batty, but when trying to brief and descriptive, it saves a lot of time and can still be easily understood. However, I hate it when someone wantonly changes between tenses.

I think I can handle poor grammar, but it's the spelling errors that irks me the most. For example, when what people really wanted to say was 'dying', but they go, 'dyeing'. That's seriously messed up. Way to kill the mood. This is even more annoying (personally, I don't know about the next person) when it comes to reading fanfiction. Least you could do was to beta your own work, or you could ask for help from others, when complete strangers have given some of their time to read your story. I know writers can get really excited while writing, thus the mistakes, but I think it's only common courtesy.

Just try a bit at least, it won't hurt.

Not really. I'm not perfect myself, so i don't think i have any reason to complain about other peoples faults. But i can't stand it when people write stuff like "UR so stoopid" and so on. My brain hurts when i see someone write "ur".

To put it this way, when i have to decrypt what other people write. THEN it's bad. That irks me to no end.

If you're coherent, who cares. Internet grammar nazis can go to..HEAVEN or something =P.

But if its work related, you damn better get your grammar straight.

Same here, it has to be really bad to bother me. Unfortunately, I see that often in the comments of news articles. What also bothers me are people who are really nitpicky about it ....(dude needs to get over it and get a life). :/

Yes, somehow. They inspire me to check my every statement.

Not at all; as long as I can understand what you're trying to say without any trouble.

I tend to take people less seriously when they don't communicate very well. Of course, I will also give plenty of leeway to those who don't have English as a native language, and are clearly trying their best to be understood. (I'd also hope for the same respect, if I were to try to write in their native language.) As far as forum posts are concerned, I'm "fluent in typo" so I will forgive some spelling/grammar errors, if the content is coherent enough.

As others have said though, if the writing is for a professional publication, it should be edited properly.
