    Annoying

    Yeah, I can see using it to text on your cell phone, it really is a pain to have to press one button 3 or 4 times to get the letter you desire. However, when using a computer, you know with like a real keyboard and everything, I really don't see what is so difficult about typing...

    On their 50th wedding anniversary,

    the couple summed up the reason for their long and happy marriage. The husband said, "I have tried never to be selfish. After all, there is no "I" in the word 'marriage.'" The wife said, "For my part, I have never corrected my husband's spelling.

    Seriously...

    How much extra time would it take to proofread things? Two minutes? One really can have spellcheck on his or her computer, and why ignore it? What do you have to lose? Would you really be doing yourself any harm by making yourself a bit easier to understand?

    Let's Get Victorian

    When I get most angry, I tend to get very, very precise in my grammar and word choice.  I also tend to drop all contractions from my speech. I've found that when I'm arguing in a text-based medium, such as online, it's apparently rather intimidating.  Certain of my...

    That's a nice way to put it.

    When I read posts by people who blatantly disregard grammar and punctuation, I can't take them seriously and I honestly don't think very highly of them either.
