    Punctuation Is Good

    It's more grammar than spelling, but I hate getting messages that have no punctuation.  I have a boss that loves to send me emails about projects he wants done that make absolutely no sense sometimes.  Drives me nuts.  Would it really be that much trouble to put a...

    LEAVE ME OUT OF THIS!!!!!

    I likely would've had the same attitude... if the writer doesn't have the wherewithal to spell most words correctly, I'm sure whatever she wrote doesn't make much sense, either. HOWEVER, I learned another valuable lesson I'll carry with me the rest of my life, taught to me by an...

    No Language Snob, Me

    As someone who uses the English language as a tool of work, I find it really hard to make myself read stories with bad spelling, punctuation and grammar. I'm not a language snob, though. I certainly don't mind using txt and blog abbreviations in private communications, as these...

    Just Stop It Already!

    When I see an article that has terrible spelling, I immediately lose interest. I'm not talking about when someone screws up whether and weather, or shoo and shoe, (though i do have a thing about they're, their, and there...). I'm talking about when it's so bad it's almost...
