*fixed

I learned that it wasn't a method to fix grammer but to sneakily change the subject of the post, then see if anyone can figure out the difference.

Don't even acknowledge their efforts by responding at all. They want you to reply to them, and they will be overjoyed to see you respond, especially in a negative way.

Those people annoy me.. Unless they're a close friend. We have a lot of wars so a grammar one isn't really gonna do too much damage. I try to type everything right anyways. Sometimes, it's just a typo.
Someone correcting my typo is not okay.

Really? My example was meant to point out the very opposite; that immaculate grammar is unnecessary in informal speech. Now don't confuse unnecessary with undesirable. I still very much prefer conversing with people such as yourself than I do those who speaks as my example displays.




I think we are in broad agreement here, in that we both agree that immaculate grammar is not necessary. However, I would still argue that good grammar is necessary for communication.

Consider this example:

We would agree that the sentence 'The irritable church barks at the leaping post office' is a grammatical sentence, and that we both understand what is being said here.

Suppose we change the syntax a little, to make is 'ungrammatical'-

Barks leaping church post office irritable at the the.

Restructuring the sentence, we see that the once coherent sentence becomes completely meaningless.

Grammar is the structure and rules which governs a language, which is why good grammar is necessary.


The fact that people look at someones wording style to gain a grasp of level of intelligence is unfortunate, but I will not deny that it is a fact. It's a very arbitrary way to gauge intelligence. For example, I can tell that you are an intelligent person, but not by your diction. But by what you are saying. You come up with logical contentions to back up your argument. Your presentation of those contentions does not bare any weight in my mind.

And lastly, that was an interesting read. Thanks.



Sometimes, presentation is just as important as what is being presented. It is an unfortunate truth, but you may think of it this way- if someone uses correct grammar and spelling, it may also indicate that he has bothered to look over and review what he has written before posting it.

Doesn't annoy me, because it doesn't happen to me. My grammar doesn't need to be corrected :P.

If you want to have a private conversation don't have it in a public forum/comment section .
(You would not do that in reality.)

It's annoying having people randomly fix your grammar. (Must give them a quick rush of gratification.)

I believe thinking and typing in a manner that doesn't allow them to find corrections is best. Being a teacher, I have to train people out of your line of thought on a daily basis. I actually agree with what the grammar and spelling nazi's are doing, even if their purpose and methods are not fully effective.

If you actually try to have a conversation with a kid in a grade level greater than sixth, you will find that their communication skills are completely lacking. As a culture, we have been growing more and more satisfied with mediocrity, and our language is the best example available to prove this.

I just ignore them. They don't deserve any thoughts.
Posted 6/25/13
I've done this quite a few times here on the forums. I just can't stand how people can feel so entitled to spew their nonsense opinions so freely when they can't even organize their own thoughts and communicate them in a way that can be taken seriously. If you write like an uneducated person, I will treat you like one. It's just as simple as that.
