To demonstrate contempt, so you know we disapprove of your values. Proper spelling and grammar are important when one is trying to communicate in public, because that makes it easier for other people to read and understand your posts. If you don't give a shit about that, you are either stupid or a dick.

As long as I know what you're saying I usually don't correct you, though I do have my moments when people's grammar bugs me.

Personally, it's because I think it helps others in the long run. English is not my first language and I became better at it through years of practice and I allowed (and encouraged) my friends to correct me whenever I say something incorrect or sound unnatural. Some people have the desire to sound like an educated person, some are simply content being seen as a dumbass, I suppose.

I don't point out all mistakes, just my pet peeves: would/should OF, their/they're, grammEr, than/then, "irregardless"


And if the poster is someone who grew up speaking English and still makes more mistakes than someone who didn't, then he's run out of excuses, it's just his own danged fault, and we're all free to judge.

(So, you thought it wouldn't matter if you didn't pay attention to the boring stuff in high school?...Hehehh. Welcome to the competitive adult world. )

I do it because I hate the perversion of language. That is how terms get mangled and people stop realizing what exactly they're referring to. Pervert the language, rules for radicals.

A lot of the time it's used to derail a discussion or argument to prove that the other party is incapable of putting forth a coherent response.

Of course there are those people who forget to use any punctuation at all. A few misspelled or improperly used words I can rephrase in my head. Missing or bad punctuation can make even a well written post tricky to read.

Not really. I just think proper spelling and grammar are important, and good manners are how you show other people you respect them. So if I'm rude to someone, it's just a very clear statement that I don't respect them.

Because altruism isn't altruism without proper spelling and punctuation!

Maybe it's because they have high hopes for you and think it's worth their time? I usually skip posts with bad grammar and too many spelling mistakes. It's a chore to read and if you can't be bothered to correct your writing, why should I bother reading it?

There are things up with which no one ought to put. That is why the people who write comments badly have been having their posts corrected.

What? Grammer Nazis were made extinct with the "140 characters or less TWTTR".
