The troll was once a reasonable man; embittered by other trolls until he, too, became as they are....

How hard is it to spell correctly or use grammar? It should be second nature or you should never have graduated from Elementary School.


It is quite hard, actually, to do both, because English orthography isn't exactly phonetic ('ough', for example, can be pronounced ten different ways) and people usually refer to colloquial usage for correct form. Therefore, someone who lives in an area where improper grammar abound, or which speaks another language will, no doubt, absord the bad grammar, or refer to their original language to determine the proper syntax, which is how we get things like Yeshuvish.


You're going to get upset because someone is trying to help you to stop butchering our wonderful language?


Our language isn't wonderful, it is a mongrel language composed of two different Germanic languages, Norman French, Latin, Greek, with some Chinese and Japanese thrown into the mix.


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.


Unless, of course, they are in a situation where it is entirely appropiate to develop a form of shorthand given certain constraints, such as the character limit on certain sites.


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


Try getting upset over something for which you are at fault.

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 ;)


Where?

The most intelligent thing I ever read on the internet was a post by an anonymous author on the subject of a certain picture involving the Skyward Sword Link, a gag, and lots and lots of chains-

'I think my sword just went skyward'

I only said that using correct grammar and spelling correctly is not at all as easy, and that there are circumstances where using a form of shorthand is justified. That said, good grammar and spelling are also necessary for coherency.

(Buffer for glitchy CR quote failure)

You defended ignorance and then you called someone out for their ignorance.


Good job!
