I Struggle With This On-line......I know EP and any other social networking site is not Language Arts class.
We all make minor mistakes from time to time. When you do it, it's no big deal. When I do it, it's a big deal.. When I type a story or comment and see that I've typed "there" instead of "their" or "your" instead of "you're", I will go back and correct it. If it's my own story, I'll update it. if it's a comment, I'll delete it and re-post it. I'm sure there are many stories and comments of mine out there where I haven't actually caught the mistakes. Oh well.
I actually belong to a few groups where grammar in the title is incorrect. Oh well.
Making mistakes or typos and not knowing any better are two different things. It does bother me when I see someone who clearly just doesn't know any better. I ask, "Why?" If English is not your first language, then I understand why and it's excusable. Otherwise, it bothers me a lot...not ALOT...A LOT.
Having said all that, if I have made mistakes in this particular story, oh well.
