Ex-grammar Nazi

I don't know. I guess I just got used to writing school papers and academic stuff.

I used to correct someone online who would commit a mistake. I was like a Grammar Nazi. Not anymore though. I came to realize this is the internet. Not everyone wants to keep a close eye on their spelling and grammar. Some might have not even finished elementary and that should not be taken against them.

There was one time though that I let my daughter write something using my account. There was some misspelling but I let go of it since she was a kid. After posting, there was someone who tried to correct the spelling by using the asterisk followed by the correct spelling.

It was then that I realized that even though a person may be of good intention, the recipient will not be happy about the correction. The feeling I got was quite close to being insulted.

So, yeah. Grammar Nazi, no more. I appreciate correct grammar and spelling, but I reckon if people want to be corrected in their writing, they'd go to the books, not the net.
