    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...

    Perhaps There'S Nothing That Can Be Done....

    I recently joined a group, "I Believe That One Person Can Change You're (sic) Whole Life" -- and I have to wonder if it really applies because I would never say "You're Whole Life." EP is replete with spelling and grammatical mistakes. Some are surely the result of autocorrect...

    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.

    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?
