    Mispell By Choice

    Some words I prefer to spell a certain way. Like the word awsome. I know it is spelled awesome, but awsome is more awsome, and people still get the point. Meow, miu, nya.

    I Enjoy Policing...

    ...myself as these were among my greatest talents in school - but it's not right to criticize others, as they may, like some dear friends of mine, have dyslexia or other problems, or those things simply may not come easy for them no matter how they try. I never forget that there...

    wtf is wrong with you grammar police people?

    You should be happy people are actually communicating. There is such a lack of communication in the world, that we can blame that on most of the worlds problems. It's a miracle when people can communicate. Lay off the freaking grammar. Do you not realize we live in a world with...

    Lol. Too right. World in crisis.

    And they only correct our spelling. Then possibly add propaganda tips. Like how to be them. Instead of fixing pains. They create more. Lmao. Sigh.

    who commented and hearted me, and I thought it would be a great post. I have a spelling bee win in my past and refuse to get huffy about misspelled words. If it affects my understanding of what they are trying to tell me, it is simple. I just ask them what they mean. So many...

    Irritating

    Thats what it is. I used to think it was a good thing to correct others grammer or spelling, but since I started English 101 (Composition) for college this year, I'm learning that correcting others mistakes can **** them off badly. Imagine how you'd feel if you spent a week on a...

    and grammar unless they ask me to. If I can understand them, no need to get all huffy about it. The unofficial police need to be reminded that there may be judgment put on them one day for something someone else doesn't like about them. Meantime, I saw this just seconds ago on...
