hahahahaha heres a good example, borrow me a pen, and lend me a pen. Whats the difference?. lmao. Irs stupid, and i guarantee most of us get this wrong, we say "borrow me a pen", when we are meant to say "lend me a pen" and we say "ill lend you a pen" when we are meant to say "ill borrow you a pen".... did i even get it right my self?

Heh, I remember that I would always write the word grammer instead of grammar. xD Despite, that my writing doesn't make sense whatsoever, but I tend to have good ideas and manage to spread them until they become senseless.

So annoying when people write "u" "ur", misuse "your" and "you're"

As a mate wrote on a forum:

WHAT'S SO *#%#ING HARD ABOUT "YOU'RE"?!
You are = You're
Your = your strawberrycupcakes are delicious, for example

/facepalm


Lets not forget when people write "i lyke u very muc".. Giving you the impression that they give a blind f*** about how their English is. So annoying and at times bloody confusing... When I write to people who is like that I need to ask again and again what the bloody pony they are saying...

WRITE UNDERSTANDABLE AND PROPER ENGLISH PLEASE >_<

NO!!! IT'S NOT ACCEPTABLE!!! IF WE KEEP THIS UP, THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE IS DOOMED!!! Well, I guess it's not TOO bad in the internet(just a LITTLE tolerable), but when you apply this moronic grammar elsewhere, it's insane!

It`s not only grammar but spelling too . Sooo ... it`s ' grammar ' by the way .
Anyway , bad grammar doesn`t usually annoy me but sometimes people who spell ' envy ' like ' invy ' makes me wonder if English teachers are doing their job properly . =/

-Since the invention of the internet, Earth's rotation has been solely propelled by English teachers turning in their graves.

Bad grammar to an extent is excusable for informal conversations; just not for formal conversations, serious discussions, when you're trying to get your point across in something serious, etc.

Generally, there isn't anything horrible about using incorrect grammar (especially in a forum thread) as long as it is understandable and not completely ridiculous looking. What's the fun of casually typing in a forum thread if you have to worry about grammar so much?

Being a grammar nazi (However, I will admit that I make mistakes as well), I can't stand it when people don't put apostrophes in their proper places and when people don't spell common words correctly. IT MAKES ME WANT TO FALCON PUNCH THEM IN THIER GODDAMN FACES! D:<

But for people who want to improve in their writing, a good book to read is Lynne Truss's Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation Some copies of the book even come with a punctuation repair kit!
