Yer right about the mistakes, but what's up with yer spelling of "difference"?


I did mention that my first language isn't english didn't I?
I never said my english isn't perfect.


Was that on the video? If so, didn't watch. Just read the posts on the thread.

"English isn't perfect", "diffrence", forgetting the "r" at the end of "you" at the description(?) despite spelling it as "your" in the title.
Your English seemed fine asides from those small mistakes, so I figured they were typos due to not even trying rather than actual misunderstandings.
My grammar isn't that good either, so I don't usually pay attention to bad grammar unless it's on a manga/anime/game, but these mistakes bothered me.

So, how about "in" vs. "on"?
I still don't get those.

Hmm....sounds simple, but still don't really get it.

Using 2 sentences from my reply to Des85 as examples:
"despite spelling it as "your" in the title."
"so I don't usually pay attention to bad grammar unless it's on a manga/anime/game"

Did I use those right, or should I have used the other one on either statement?

I think it bothers more than necessary. Like to the point where it wipes the smile off my face in an enjoyable conversation. I die a little inside everytime work colleagues with Ph.D and master degrees reply to my thank you's with "your welcome". Unless English is not your first language or using a phone, there's no excuse. We were taught grammar in second grade people. -___-

I know I am overreacting but it's my first emotion whenever I see it used incorrectly.

unless those replies are written, then you can't really be sure that they are saying "your welcome" as "you're" and "your" are pronounced the same.
