    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    But the poor biped proved my words. They need to correct others. But have so much grammar stored. That it keeps them from learning. And their peers feed their ego. Like a store that sells acids. And kids corrected feel less good. Or not good enough. So...

    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.

    Bad grammar and spelling is one guaranteed way to make me not want to talk to you. If you want to have a conversation, at least make an effort to show it's worth your time.
