I always try to write as perfectly as I can. Even if I missed a punctuation mark or made a spelling mistake I would still end up editing the post. It's kind of a OCD situation for me.

I have come across countless people with grammar mistakes. But never ever have I tried to correct anyone of them. The reason is because, it is rude as I am usually discreet about my manners. I also encourage people to always be themselves and try not to be something or someone else they are not. Self expression is very important to me and a writing can tell us a lot about a person.
I like things to be natural. And people should open up about themselves as they normally do, that's the mystery.

Okay, enough with my rant! Once I start; it just gets hard for me to stop... All I wanted to say was I don't correct people!

I tend to be a bit of a Grammar Nazi myself; however, English is my second language.

I suppose since I had to truly study the language so I wouldn't be made fun of, I didn't understand why a native couldn't speak their mother tongue correctly.

I know my grammar is far from perfect, but the whole "you're/your" and "there/their/they're" crap annoys me. Spelling, I can understand a bit, just because English isn't spelled phonetically, unlike my mother tongue. So, to make sure you're spelling/pronouncing things correctly, you have to both read them and hear them. I also understand reading is not *everybody's* idea of a hobby. But the aforementioned examples are elementary, so, yeah. They annoy me.

I've been doing better with my "pedanticalness". I currently live in a section of the U.S. infamous for butchering the English language, so I've developed a very slight callous to horrible grammar (e.g. "I runneded to the sto" vs. "I ran to the store.") I also don't carry a red pen around anymore. I tend to restrain myself when I read online posts and articles, much like I'm doing now. I think I died a little inside when I clicked here.

My point is, please be patient with us grammar nazis. We really do mean well. We're just grammar otaku- passionate about language.

I'd consider myself a grammar Nazi too, but come on, people make little mistakes all the time. It aggravates me when people correct me. as well. I feel beneath them in the English world. I just want to be superior when it comes to grammar and spelling, damn it!

I'd also like to share something. I was so upset at the time:
A person corrected me on my grammar on Facebook, replying to my comment on a picture from a Facebook page. I don't remember what the picture was, but I was making a valid point. When I received the notification, I thought I was in for some debating, and I got excited. BUT NO. GOD DAMN IT. IT WAS SOMEBODY CORRECTING ME.

I also hate the racists on religious youtube videos and the people who think correcting other people's spelling/grammatical errors is their job on the internet.
