Drives Me Crazy, Even Though I Should Be Worried About It Really

If I see one more person write 'off' when they mean 'of' I very well may scream.

Text message with words like 'm8', 'tomoz', or 'c u l8r' have a similar reaction. I must be one of only a handful of people that tries to put all the correct grammar and punctuation into a text message and double check it before I send!!

I just wonder what my children's education level will be when their leaving school, afraid they'll get sucked into, what basicaly boils down to, an incredibly lazy approach to language.

Let's hope it get's more better soon cuz that wud b buzzin'.

I agree with the story to some extent but this is an experience site and not a writing site. <br />
<br />
The whole point is to share experiences and if this achieved then I don't think poor grammer, punctuation or spelling will diminish that.

I also hope it gets more better soon too.

you know WHY because this is a social networking site not a publication not a job application and i am not distorying my fingers to put a capital letter at the begining of a sentece or an apostophe in thats for some grammar nazi who needs a hobby or a job or something, anything else to fill their time with<br />
<br />
not to mention the basic computer keyboard needs a complete redesign to make it easier to type and actually make words, actuallly reach the shift key to make capital letters actually be able to find the apostrophe and use it <br />
<br />
computer keyboards should be taylored to hand size and key structure should be organized to accomodate your first 2 fingers and thumb on your dominate hand because thats what people are natuarlly inclined to use <br />
<br />
Also the shift caps lock and tab keys on both sides of the keyboard should be smaller than the letter keys not larger than the letter keys so that your not aming for a hit the rcaps lock AND GET TEXT THAT LOOKS LIKE THIS <br />
<br />
i don't know how mnanty times i end up typing likke thisd becausew the keys arer too smasll abn i'm always hitting the key nex to the one i want because i have large hands and a laptops standard keyboard <br />
<br />
<br />
and phonetic spelling wouldn't be a bad thing in actuallity it would be a very GOOD thing as the english language makes no sense even to people who speak a varity of other languages even native speakers can't figure it out and i am sooo tired of double letters and strange spellings because of latin roots or it came from french or whatever the ****
