Well it’s the year 2008 and guesses what? Many of us still haven’t mastered grammar!
With the dawn of the new years I wonder how could anyone (in high school) still have not manage to write properly or read (ridicule me all you like but keeping my eyes on the screen hurts since my old glasses broke and I rather be mocked than blind!). During my school year one teacher has attempted suicide due to the student's continual use of, "All your base are belong to us", "ROFLCOPTER", "omg haxor in teh sever", ect.
so I ask you fellow forum dwellers, is this acceptable in today’s society?

I would also like to add that I have decided not to rewrite the thread only to repost it with the necessary correction.
edit:found a couple of mistakes in my entry after a read through.

Not all Countries speak English!
Not all people watch English movies!
Not all people have heard English words from when they were born!
Not all people love English!

I agree with you. Grammar is very important, not only in the practice of daily life, but also online. We live in the 'epoch of the internet,' -like I like to call it.- Another reason for what we should keep our 'mind clean.' Let me elaborate: people think, and tend to do most of the time, to write in the way 'everybody who is cool' does. Take that idiotic -excuse if I offend somebody, which I highly doubt since they are 'too cool'- 'lingo' they call '1337' -leet.- Just because somebody uses, or misuses to be precise, certain way of expression doesn't mean we have to. To put all that together, nobody cares to read, or decipher hieroglyphics, or try to understand something illegible.

Erm.... actually it's not that important =.= Coz sometimes we wont manage to comfirm which is the correct or wrong statement in grammar. Sometimes when we are used to the common grammar mistake, we wont know that we are actually having a grammar mistake. So erm... As long as people understand what we are about to say, that's more than enough. Rite ? xD

I love to make things right once but as for now, i prefer.....

Be simple and happy =P

and yea, sometimes minor tend to confuse with grammar coz what i've seen the most in malaysia is that Chinese school education thing..... They translate the whole thing from chinese to english and that's why =.= I think my english standard is not that bad, coz i study in malay school instead of chinese =.= Plus im interested in english too =P But still, i prefer something simple. As long as it's not that worst i'll just accept it =P

Grammar is hard to master and everybody makes mistakes. But, I do think that everyone should, at the very least, know the basics of it. Communication is the key to mostly everything including having a successful career. If your grammar is atrocious, it will make an impression, and you will fail.

Excuse me if I deviated from the main subject. But it is also important to at least try to 'type' something that other persons would understand.

I agree with this person. Take for an example, my native language is not English. It is true, not all of us learned English grammar.

Just at least take consideration of the way you express yourselves. Just an advice if you like.

Just as long as the people who write stupidly don't talk like that as well.

Meh, i get used to bad grammar from playing MMOs because you have to deal with jackasses that speak in some butchered dialect of 1337 and english, and gold farmers that couldn't string a proper sentence together (in english) to save their lives

I totally hate it when someone uses stuff like 'sur3 or writ3 lik tis' It is just so freaking annoying. And the thing is, no one bothers to care anymore! Sure, not everyone lives in the US and speak English properly but at least use spell check! It's there for a reason, so use it!!!

I can understand a foreigner's grammar is not so great. At least type some stuff we can understand. That includes native English speakers too!
