    Despite I Love Words...

    ... and seeing them beautifully arranged with the rules each language has created throughout the centuries of its existence, I never judge people for their Grammar or Spelling mistakes, because those factors do NOT determine their intelligence, or value, or personal...

    Proudly Not

    We all make mistakes, and I don't find it encouraging to shoot people down simply because they cannot write well. Also, language is fluid. It changes. There are no rules. Anyone that says otherwise is prudish.

    Words

    English is not my mother tongue.  I just do my best and it takes an effort still.  I try to avoid them but I make mistakes and my spelling may be very poor in personal messages. Words are important and it remains important to take care of them and to cultivate the...

    Annoyance

    The one thing that really annoys me is when people constantly corrects your grammar/spelling. I mean are you kidding me?! This is the internet for crying out loud, and it's not like you're typing a real essay. If you want to be a grammar Nazi then go right ahead and correct...

    Bad Grammar: Laxative For The Pompous

    I once dated a girl that would have a big ol' bum brownie in her pants every time I used the wrong your/you're in a text message. Figuratively speaking of course. She would act as if the statement couldn't be comprehended if I said 'Your a wingnut' as opposed to 'You're a...

    I Believe In Constructive Correction

    But I am not a Spelling or Grammar Nazi. Nazi's are extremist, borderline bullies and God knows that is not what I am about. I don't point out errors to embarrass or annoy others. I do it out of respect for the person. I know there are people out there who are truly Spelling and...

    Bad grammar and spelling is one guaranteed way to make me not want to talk to you. If you want to have a conversation, at least make an effort to show it's worth your time.
