Nope. Not everyone has English as his/her native language + not everyone excels in English so we can always learn.

Now when someone shortens every words like: every1, u, liek, heks, diz, etc. it does get annoying to read and I usually just skip them.

Yes I agree English is a very difficult language, but I think native English speakers shouldn't be given a free pass to be careless and lazy. If you spend time on forums and a large part of your day is spent writing put some care into it. Encountering bad use of grammar and spelling when they are perfectly capable of doing it right, is like talking to someone face to face and something tells you they don't care about your time and your words.


If I read something on an internet forum, it doesn't irk me. If I find grammatical/spelling mistakes in my own or a friend's essay, it irks the crap out of me.

JustineKo2, many college students don't have top notch grammar skills despite taking a basic writing course. However they are humans and humans make mistakes from time to time. Native speakers should be given a free pass but it they repeatedly make mistakes despite being corrected then their free pass should be invalid.

some of it bothers me. the odd typo doesn't bother me. I can't criticize people's punctuation as mine is awful.
"bt stuf liek ths" bothers me a lot. people too lazy to type out whole words bother me. My example is not good but hopefully I got my point across

Yes, it irks me very much because I don't make those kind of mistakes and I hope the others does the same too.

Not really...as long as it is understandable most of the time.

Since this is the internet I can accept and ignore these grammatical errors in most cases. Of course there are those extreme posts where people just don't know how to spell or use words correctly to save their life. I can't think of an example to write out because my mind doesn't work that way but some examples can be found at whywasibanned.com. You have to dig into their archive a bit. Anyway, Unless it's a major word use problem where what they type makes absolutely no sense and is filled with IM slang and numbers then I can look past it. Others find the lack of punctuation a problem but I can mentally add it in where I would normally use it so I don't have any problems with that. I just can't write without punctuation myself.

I try to accept it. I really do but grammar mistakes bother me. i can overlook them as long as the general message can get out but when I have to read it over a few times just to understand it, I just want to correct the heck out of it. I'm aware that English isn't a lot of people's first language. Even I make mistakes when writing in other languages. (Man, I'm terrible) It just irks me and I don't know if I should correct the person or not. I'm sure some of them would appreciate the constructive criticism. Ok, now I'm just speaking in the story-writer POV.
