I do not care for other people's grammar issues. I just care about my own. I miss English class a lot and would like to attend college again.

I starting to feel stupid each day with my grammar especially with my stories.

Still a whole lot better than listening to a foreigner speak. If the communication is a smooth success and you care about details like that, you're probably a language bully/bandwagoner. Language correction is a lot less effective than intense exposure anyways.

And when you try to correct someone about it they call you a Grammar Nazi and everyone else gangs on you too.

Another one about it.

And it's grammar nazis, not nazi's.
Nazi's would mean "nazi is".



Only 6 year old write it like that. Nope, not even they write it like that, hmmmm.

And no, I'm not overreacting. The internet is full of horrible grammar, and I just can't help but facepalm at it all.
My first language isn't english either, but at least I know the diffrence between "you're" and "your", "then" and "than" and everything else.
Back when I was 20 years old, I did write "then" when I was supposed to write "than" and someone asked me "Then what?" I was pretty confused at it back then

That's the tip of the iceberg. Do you know how many times I've burst a figurative blood vessel over people spelling "quiet" as "quite"?

This is a topic for which I have no patience. Both sides are complete bullshit. We have the grammar nazis who insist that everything must be written correctly for the sake of clarity, or for the sake of preserving the "greatness" of English, and the ingrates who just couldn't care less.

But really, English is just a tool. Yur not going to get anywhere by insisting that yur version of English is correct. All yur really doing is being an asshole. At the same time, people who genuinely have no idea how to write and are turning in college papers with "you're" and "your" mixed are just plain stupid.

The thing is, unless someone is completely butchering English grammar, misspelling here and there in casual writing does not impact the clarity of the writing. Proper writing has a time and place, but YouTube comments and forum posts simply aren't worth the effort.

That one always gets me. Luckily I've gotten used to it after all the times I used the wrong one.
