Well it's easy to judge people by their grammar and spelling but I would disagree with anyone who thinks the lack of effect put into proper netiquette is a sign of "not-so-smart" . I remember when I used to have terrible grammar and spelling when I started out on using the internet and throughout the years, I've gotten better. I don't think it's a matter of intelligence, rather people simply don't know it yet until someone corrects them.

Nah but I think they are being lazy since typing or writing with grammar isn't really all that hard.

Communication is the foundation of society. If you're unable, or unwilling, to express your thoughts clearly you aren't necessarily stupid in general, but you can't deny that it is an intellectual failing on your part.

yo u must b lyk rly werd if u think bad grammar & intelligence r not linked. I mean if ppl talk lyk dis and r srs bout talkin lyk dis, and this is how they talk on forums and stuff, then y u think they smart lol? I mean, u kno, unga tunga *insert caveman scribbles* ok do u see my point? u is gotta learn that grammar & intelligence is linked by many things. They scientists found that grammar are linked 2 IQ and it's all over the interweb and even is not so you know, so maybe u should understand how this is goes going.



As difficult as that was to read, I can only imagine how hard it was to type.


It wasn't even difficult at all to read that...

Anyone who claims such a thing is showing his/her intellectual dishonesty. If you understand the meaning of what was said and you still insist on being a jerk about it then that speaks volumes about your interest in the actual discussion. Simply reminding someone that there grammar is wrong and moving on is quite acceptable and I encourage it.


then 50 people do it in the same post after the first...well even at the first it becomes more annoying then the error itself.

Heh, I don't think that'll happen in America.. Because I heard that if Kids been missing some school days the parent get in trouble with the law enforcement! Also School are required to keep children up to level, If they're behind.. they'll have to redo the Grade as they were last year.. Like for example Mark is fourth grader, and he'll still be fourth grader this year, because he failed last year.

But I noticed that in Grade School, but in High school.. If some of the Teenager don't care.. they'll be flexable with them.. which Teachers shouldn't.. They should try their best to bring out the potential in Children till they Graduate from High School.. And From there, They're on their own in College..

Well I hope Teachers are serious with the current generations.. The School I was in before I went to Deaf School didn't teach me anything.. They just put me in Special Ed class because I'm deaf.. and they gave me Math assignment and I already knew them since all of the answer is zero haha.. Like what 2 x 0, 5 x 0.. So all of them had zero. Haha Yea I'm Pissed..

I'm glad I went to Deaf school, tried my best to catch up.. I don't think it was enough.. I should've join since grade school.. But got in 11th grade..

That why its important that every parents make sure their kids are getting serious education at school and not assigned to lazy teachers! >.<

Some people use slang , people use short cuts and things like that, dose not mean they're stupid.
Then people like me type really fast, faster than i am really capable and i do not use spell check and dont always double check my post before posting.
Also sometimes i post drunk and/or very tired so my answer is no.

"Then people like me type really fast, faster than i am really capable and i do not use spell check and dont always double check my post before posting."

This is actually why i fuck up grammatically all the time in a nutshell.

I just ate, grandma.

Grammar is important, but poor grammar is a reflection of education rather than an indicator of intelligence.

Grammar is not indication of intelligence (either way).

Never said I wasn't judgemental.



I'm just saying it's a misguided indicator.

So i see this a lot online and i find it funny because i have been called out by people for using Your instead of you're and other mistakes all the time.

I routinely get grammar wrong even thought i know proper grammar and make the same mistakes over and over \ o /
So people just assume because of that you can't be intelligent.


I don't understand that way of thinking.

Just because someone is bad with grammar and has a hard time with it doesn't mean they aren't intelligent in general...for all you know they could be in university or know things that one would consider only possible with intelligence (High level Mathematics etc).

I think the whole if you don't use grammar properly you are not intelligent and are dumb argument and belief is pretty dumb and just makes people look unintelligent.

That's my opinion on it however honestly i don't really care about using the right Your or You're most of the time online since i assume people have the basic intelligence to read into context and i'm a lazy shit.



i dunno i just find it really funny and stupid how people go aggro and everyone corrects people aggressively if there grammar is incorrect it just makes them seem like children to me


Yeah my grammar is pretty poor it's one of my worst subject and my least favorite. Tbh science is the only subject i'm good at. I try to keep my grammar mistakes to a minimum just so this doesn't happen to me because humans are so fucking dumb. But normally when you have a scientific argument people won't talk about the grammar as long as it's decent since i haven't had it happen to me yet.

Well.....yes, most of the time, especially communicating on a forum instead of real time.. I'd name forumers I'd think are idiots for their views and their ability to give me eyesores with their bullshit sentence construction, but unfortunately that would be harassment.
