Here's the thing.<br />
If someone is writing something, they want someone else to read it.<br />
If they want someone else to read it, they should put the effort into the writing, so the reader does not have to put the effort into the reading.<br />
An attitude of "I want you to help me, but not enough that I am willing to put any effort in to assist you" ****** me off.<br />
Here's how I feel as a reader:<br />
An occasional typo: Fine, no problemo.<br />
Text-spk: r u kidn me? Srsly? OK, at a push. You're making me work harder as a reader than I want to, but I can move with the times - if that's the new online language, then that's the new online language. I don't like it, but I can cope.<br />
Garbled grammar, which leaves me unclear on the question - I am not enjoying this writing very much kind of style less is more better.<br />
Garbled grammar and terrible spelling - GTFO.<br />
Garbled grammar, txt spk, and poor spelling together - leads me to believe this is a worthless post from a waste of skin. I will happily administer what ever chlorine substitute is necessary to clean the gene pool of this malignant, ignorant, smelly pile of excremental shame to the species.<br />
Yeah, you heard me. Write in a way I can read, or **** you and the horse you rode in on.
No, I think it's better to look at the beam in one's eye.
nO Of corse nott ...it beARS no ReflCtion of WHOO you are ...except Having The Luck to haVe a good EDUCation ba<x>sed on THE three RRR'S ...iT'S ignorant to juDGGE some one ba<x>seD on THEIr Spelling
It isn't a serious question, right?<br />
But if it is, no!
No, I don't thynk that wood be nice. You may be perfect at spellinng and grammer, but are very weke in anuther subject that is ekwally anoying to sombudy else. How would you like to be ripped on for it?
I'd rather be able to flag people for hyper sensitivity to spelling and grammar errors or typos.... :)
yez,we al must does it,otherwize dis site donat make sence !
What? Why? This is not a freakin' English language class! People are here to share expereinces, find support, make friends, not to be picked on for their writing skills, for chrissake!
I can't believe you suggest something like that...What a crap!
I think we should all be respectful and accept people the way they write things ..............and not for the way they spell this site is not a spelling contest there are alot more things that people do here like at tmes being downright rude..................................thank you! Vman(Peter)
NO, that is another site, this is called the experienceproject, where no body is perfect.
Well, there should be a special flag set aside just for those errors. They should be punished by having to repeat grades 1-4 of elementary school before being allowed back. But seriously, some of the spelling & grammar errors drive me nuts too!
Yeah why not?<br />
Might aswel have one for people who have different hair colour aswel.... different beliefs or other things that they barely have control over. Bad spelling is not a conscious decision for people..... it is what they know... if their education is lacking...it is not really their fault so much... so I don't really find that just cause to mock them or anything.
Not everyone was given a great education and even those that have still have a hard time with spelling. I think all those closed minded people that think just because someone can't spell good is a waste of skin, should try and understand what its like for the other person. You don't think they realize their own short comings. There are many people on here that are older and have less education than my 8 year old son. Because they grew up in a day and age where learning was 2nd to working. Then you have others that are from another country and it comes out poor when they try to ask a question. No one is perfect and no one should judge another ever. Thats the problem with this world. Everyone thinks they are so much better than everyone else. I'll be the 1st to say I suck at spelling and if it wasn't for spell check I would be a mess. But that doesn't make me stupid by any means. I'm smart in many other areas. So stop judging everyone and just deal with the fact this world is made up of all kinds of people and worry about the rapist and kills that are out there...
I guess someone wanted to find an excuse to Flag me. I be Flagged like high heavens for this. This is a disabilitiy of mine. I try very hard with my grammer and spelling. And I will have missspelled words where I don't have a spell checker. I use the spell checker every time I can to improve my spelling. and my mind becomes very distracted in my grammer as well. But I really struggle with it.
that seems like a little much just for bad spelling
No. My spelling is excellent, as is my grammar. My typing, however, is hopeless. I have typos everywhere, some of which I notice and correct, but I don't always see them.
neigh we shood jest haz to watch sesame streets moir. :O)
i think if u have understood then u dont need to see grammar because every one has feeling but they dont knows english properly
I heartily agree. I can't stand some of the things that people write. I mean, I know nobody's perfect and I make my mistakes too, but when you get corrected you learn the right way to do something so in the end it would make some people wake up and value their own language. Plus there are a lot of international users who write in English even though it's not their native tongue. It would probably be a great thing for them too.
