How hard is it to spell correctly or use grammar? It should be second nature or you should never have graduated from Elementary School.
You're going to get upset because someone is trying to help you to stop butchering our wonderful language?

If you want to spell terribly and use grammar improperly, then you're free to do so, but those who paid attention in Elementary School are going to correct you or just ignore you all together, and assume you're stubbornly stupid.

Try getting upset over something you're not at fault for.

Ignore them. They are small time troll and they are not clever enough to think of anything else to taunt you with.


Who says they're trying to taunt you? You must be extremely paranoid or self-centered.

I dont mind, i personally hate extreme misspellings where you cant read half the post, also the "your & you're" is really annoying aswell.

But all in all, it doesnt really matter as long as the post is readable and the poster seems somewhat intellectual.


This is the internet- the most intellectually stimulating thing you are ever going to find here is the 'I haz cheezburger' Cat.



Then you are definately looking the wrong places

I only ever do this if someone has made spelling mistakes in their comments about the person having low intelligence because they can't spell... Well if they're going to make comments like that they should at least make sure they have spelt everything correctly themselves.

Is it really too much to ask that people read over what they've typed and correct any errors they see? Mistakes and typos will happen but if you review something before you post it, you should catch most of them. Spellcheck is pretty much everywhere now anyway. If you're in such a rush to post something that you can't take 30 seconds to look back over it first, it's probably not worth posting.
As for people who correct others' spellings or grammar, whether they're genuinely trying to help you or not, the best thing to do is thank them and move on. The genuine ones will get that warm, fuzzy feeling they crave. Trolls will be less likely to continue annoying you than if you reply angrily and give them more ammunition. It's a win-win.

I don't mind grammar nazis, and if you spell something wrong, they have the right to correct you, even if it's annoying.

I myself would correct people on their bad spelling and grammar, if I didn't think that doing so would be kind of rude. I know this is the internet, but I prefer it when people use the right 'you're' or 'your' or when their statement is at least understandable.

not lik dis cuz its annoyin as fck n i wnt to currect it badwy
(yes, I typed it like that on purpose, because some of the people on the internet really do type like that )

I really don't care. As long I get your intent, I don't mind how you write. People that correct other people's grammar are just controlling anal bullies.

I'll translate that complete and utter gibberish for you all. The spellcorrect is going crazy over it, red lines everywhere.

hello everybody how are you doing today?
Aye (or I?), just found this thread and I thought it'd be very funny to hate those grammar nazis too.

That you are so annoying like oh my gawd get a life for real? I mean taking all that time to correct somebody's mistakes can you imagine how long that takes sometimes. some people out there are just terrible with their spelling and grammar it would take forever to correct all their words. I mean seriously go back to school and learn to spell but grammar nazis are just as bad, sometimes their corrections are wrong, like c'monnnnnnnn!


If you're going to correct somebody then at least do it right. However if we can understand their words isn't that all that matters?
your own comprehension skills are just as important as their spelling and grammar


.............. worst spelling and grammar I've seen in a long time on the internet, so in conclusion:

////////////////////Grammar Nazi OUT.

Your corrections were incorrect. You even forgot to capitalize a letter at the beginning of one of the sentences. Here is a more proper translation.

"Hello everybody how are you doing today?
I just found this thread and I thought it'd be very funny, I hate those grammar nazis too!

They are so annoying like oh my god get a life for real. I mean taking all that time to correct somebody's mistakes, can you imagine how long that can take sometimes? Some people out there are just terrible with their spelling and grammar it would take forever to correct all their words.
I mean seriously go back to school and learn how to spell, but grammar nazis are just as bad. Sometimes their corrections are wrong, like come on.

If you are going to correct somebody then at least do it right. However, if we can understand their words isn't that all that matters?
