    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.

    With A Passion

    I have seen many good, lighthearted and fun comments and conversations turn sour because of someone else policing someone's grammar and spelling. I myself won a spelling bee before but I still make mistakes when I type. I got so good with English class in school that I was...

    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...

    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...

    ...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...

    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...

    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.
