    With A Passion

    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...

    This One Person...

    There's this one person who was stupid enough to start a mini troll war against me just because I didn't know that it's and its are two entirely different things. The latter is a more possessive version of it and the former is used with an apostrophee and it's a way of saying it...

    Although I like to make sure

    that my grammar and spelling are correct (sometimes the odd mistake may appear) I don't judge others if they don't use proper grammar. Commenting on others posts to tell them that their grammar is poor is just pathetic and childish. Everyone is different. Yes it may annoy some...

    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.

    Alright. I am what they call a Grammar Nazi.

    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...

    I wrote this as a comment to someone

    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...

    Seriously, **** you. I don't mind being

    corrected, so long as your intention is to help people. But too many people use these errors as an excuse to discredit valuable opinions and information.

    I don't correct others in spelling

    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...
