    Do You Really Dislike Incorrect Spelling And Grammar?

    Be sure and pay attention to the following sentences. They are identical to ones you may have read before, then decide if there is anything wrong with them. Do you really love words or are you just an imposter? I guarantee that there is at least one error in these words, probably...

    I realize that commenting on this will probably

    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...

    An Occupational Hazard

    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.
