I hate when people write/spell/use

to and too wrong

Too meaning also or a lot of; and to for everything else

like

I am going too the market. instead of, I am going to the market.

It bugs me even more to see people spell your as "you're" when it's clearly not used in that context

Text language, improper grammar, and purposely misspelled things annoy me so much. Earlier my friend used "herd" instead of "heard" and a bunch of over little things and I went all grammar nazi on her xD oops ... But I'm a hypocrite about this topic because my grammar and vocabulary aren't always correct yet I still correct people.

If it isn't professional writing, my expectations aren't very high -- as long as the meaning is conveyed, no biggie.

The exceptions...two stand out...if someone says, "your stupid" (or the like), it is honestly difficult to avoid pointing out the irony.

That...and I am a little annoyed by this recent trend I've seen with people saying, "it's a mute point." This is something I've noticed in the past year that comes up so often in writing, on the internet, that I'm wondering who started it.

Well...whatever...doesn't matter. But I want to say...

Dude. MOOT. It's moot. Really.

Yeah.. ------ ---- -- -- -- - ---- - - - (That's my mute point)
and, I ignore it, I make some points out at others when they're talking to me and they care a little or try to type proficiently.. But that's a pretty moot point. I have some grammar nazi tendancies, but I wouldn't blow up and go off belittling someone. However, I have tendancies if it looks like the person is trying to attempt to do it properly. Though I try to teach, not scold, or be all higher than thou.

It really depends on whether I'm reading an article or just a simple youtube comment tbh.

I'm expecting it to be grammatically correct when reading an article, otherwise I don't mind. To be frank, I feel it's retarded of someone to be a grammar nazi and not taking into consideration that the person writing this could have several reasons for not writing proper English.

I never had that kind of problem, hlowever, in sentence structure such as commas (not really) or anything that is considered high-level english.

Only when I can't understand what someone is trying to say...

I expect people to have spelling errors and things like that... Not everyone has spell/grammar-check at the ready.
