I am not very good at English, so It does not really bother me as long it is readable. I have seen long posts without punctuation and with lots of broken words. That is what bothers me.

When you are revising your classmate's essay, his/her essay contains too grammars. I will get frustrated revising some of my previous classmates' essay, although I am not a good writer. I want to improve my writing, and I want to start this semester.

I find it funny occasionally, when they aren't being serious.
However, when I meet someone who's being serious and typing with bad grammar, it annoys me.
I can't help but ignore that person, because I find whatever they say meaningless if I cannot understand what they are trying to say.

Depends on whether it's intentional or not and what the context is. If it's something like "You really aught to do something about that cyst," the word is "ought" and you may want to correct them (privately) and tell them the difference. Tact comes into play because some people get offended if you correct them in public (and sometimes even in private), and you should explain you're not doing it maliciously.

I used to edit people's stories and was really really disturbed how many they had in it. One guy had a 30-chapter book he had been writing and he wrote things like "could of" instead of "could have" or even "could've" (we were both 14, and I was way better in English). And he did it all the time, all over the place, and sometimes it was like he just let spell check do whatever it wanted, so I had a lot of work to do.

Sometimes it bothers me sometimes it doesn't. I guess it depends on how often the person screws up. I know I mess up more frequently then I used to. I blame facebook and my fast typing skills without proofreading I can't stand all the abbreviations and acronyms though. I am getting old and can't keep up with you young whippersnappers and your lingo My cousin and all her buddies type in the most annoying way though. Try reading this without wanting to hit yourself.

Example of how my cousin types:
Heyyy guyssss!! Whatsss goinggg onnn thissss weekenddd??? Annyyy partiessss? I ammmm sooo boredddd tonighttttt....

AHHHHHHHH!!!!! *shoots self in the head*

Yes. Not much though.

As long as the sentence is UNDERSTANDABLE.

As long as the sentence is legible, I don't mind. I just don't like when people use special characters or symbols in their writing. I don't mind the mistakes with "you're" and "your", and so on. Shortening of words in a confusing way bothers me. I understand that not everyone is very good at speaking English, so I don't mind.

It bothers me when i see simple mistakes that could have been easily corrected. Though i'm bothered by it, i suppose i can still put up with it as long as it's (somewhat) understandable.

But what seriously pisses me off is when i see posts that are loaded with grammar mistakes and are written in a disrespectful tone (for example, scolding someone or the likes of it). I've just recently come across one of such posts

I can often ignore it, But if it's blatantly bad I have to comment. For me my #1 is

A vs AN

"I got a apple from the fruit bowl"

"I've got a ear ache"

Drives me up the wall!

and when people say COMMON over Come on, Or C'mon. COMMON is a freaking word and is NOT even an abbreviation.

And ops over Oops. Ops is an abbreviation for Operations, Not for dropping your fork.

Doesn't bug me too much. But look at 90% of the threads started on this website. The title almost always has a grammar or spelling mistake...

I don't mind slang, lolspeak and abbreviations but sometimes there are words that are spelled right but used wrong. For example, I see verbs that people avoid conjugating to the proper tense simply because they forget how:

"i was attack by my dog. It left scars. "

*attacked

"every1 said my hair look like second generation of dudes from Alice Nine"

*looked


Looks*

It seems as if your English isn't completely up to scratch, thus making this thread being ironic.

At least you're getting some action there.
