I Think The Grammar Police Must Stop Behaving Rudely!!! Posting A's on my comments just proves my point.I think your site sucks. I don't believe that correcting another's grammar is a good way to, "Make Friends and Influence People." In fact, it's considerably apathetic and cruel. What makes grammar fanatics think it's perfectly fine to do? Who do you think you are? Correcting others who are just trying to express him or herself is just WRONG! It hurts feelings and embarrasses people; are you just sadists who hide behind words to make you feel you're doing the world a favor? Who, may I ask, gave you permission to try to take others down? Is it possible that doing so makes you feel superior? I make many mistakes in grammar and spelling, but I also know how to write a good story. In fact, I have read several of the stories on your site by so called, 'Grammar Professionals', who have made many grammar and spelling errors. I even read one statement by a "Bad Grammar Hater" who spelled grammar as g-r-a-m-m-e-r!!! I noticed that no one wrote to correct her either; why do you think that is? Could it have been that it was rude to correct the 'Hater'; or one of you would hurt her feelings? But, what I am really trying to point out here is not about what is written on a piece of paper; it's about connecting with others while having a conversation. Is this not one of the most important parts of life? What do you say to others who mistakenly say, "you and I" instead of "you and me" at the end of a sentence. Do you scold them with your brillant knowledge of why that is incorrect? Who gives a damn! You're lucky to have someone to talk to, but you won't have him or her stick around you to be criticized for long; if you are decent enough to care. Tell me, if you happen to hate bad English, do you hate people who stutter while speaking, or do you correct them for repeating parts of a word or words, because that isn't proper English? It's very similar in that way.
I am suggesting to you "Grammar Police" to stop correcting people who are only talking to you to make a connection, however big or small, with another human being. I know that constantly correcting people who speak improper English is not the real issue here; people often point out imperfections in others because they can't look honestly at their own issues. "We often see in others what is true in ourselves." Be kind, and love others for being kind as well, because, "There, but for the grace of God go I!!!"
I AM REFERRING TO CORRECTING ANOTHER HUMAN BEINGS SPOKEN WORD!!! MY COMMENT; MY RULES!!! I apologize for the capitals, I know it represents anger while texting or writing. I'm not angry; I have written more than once that my comment refers to spoken English, and not written. I understand what you're saying about that. However, my comment is written for those, who correct others who happen to be speaking to them.
