I just think like it was said before, people should learn to express themselves freely. If people really want anyone to understand though, then maybe they can try to write more clear. But then...I don't know. I don't wanna get into an arguement so bear with me here.






My thoughts exactly. When I seriously write poems or letters, I have really good grammar..........Here I spell stuff correctly, but as long as my meaning is clear, I don't really care about grammar.

Yeah, it can get really annoying, but usually if the majority of people use proper grammar the rest buckle to peer pressure. It can be annoying, but we would never ban it, that is just silly.

I don't even notice anymore, but I do skip topics if they have over-used "mah" cos that just annoys me.

i have been reading more and more posts like that (however, i mostly notice that people only type like that in chit-chat, because the true imbeciles dont venture outside of it!) hehehe

what annoys me is when people randomly add letters into it like:



&i woz@hissssssss house talkin2himmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm



(i can understand the use of abbreviations and slang, but pressing random letters on the key-board is just eyeball-gouging!)

*arhg* i can understand what you mean about bad grammar, especially because i plan on studying english in college to become an english teacher...



let's just remember that bad spelling does NOT count for bad grammar--it counts for bad SPELLING. grammar is conjugation between subject and verb, correlation between plurals and their possessives, adjectives, and whatnot. (sorry if i lost anyone) examples:



you was thinking (wrong subject verb agreement)

it got me thinking wrongly about the stuffs (poor adverb use and incorrect plural usage)



it doesn't bother me that [sometimes] the spelling is atrocious around here (i mean, i don't like to capitalize things when i'm typing for speed, and not accuracy!) but seriously, understanding grammar in the english language and spelling in the english language is *ahem* more easier sed then dun (*argh* I JUST TYPED THAT?! omg... *walks away contemplating her decision for a career choice* ;))

It's a reflection of a person's personality. Since you can't sense sarcasm, humor, or other things over the internet, you need to find other ways to express yourself, and I guess that toying with the way you type is a way of doing that.



Personally I try and use good grammer because it would throw me when I went to go type a paper, and be typing like this "In 1999 bush iz 2 cool 4 words."

Turning over in interrupted slumber,

You ponder others, growing ever wakeful,

You've locked the vermin in the other bedroom,

To be so perfect causes you to feel so thankful,

Now find the fault because your boyfriend can't read,

Reflecting on to you is all the bitterness you need,

So unhappy, yet so preoccupied,

Never found beaten down with your forked tongue tied.



Your eulogy is like poetry,

But your mouth is like a magazine.



Queen dependency is cowering, please don't be confused,

You are vacant and submissive, receptive to abuse,

Virtue isn't tangible, and sense of self is dated,

Names constant on your cracked lips are now eviscerated,

Your spine is made of metal, Your veins are bound in electric tape,

And all along an impulse lights at random in your face,

Yough cought up an offering and forget which words are lies,

Then your skull echoes a singeing pop, as your brain is cauterized.

I just dont like it when it makes the post really hard to read and you don't know if ur actually answering their question.




That's exactly what I hate too. Especially when there's no periods whatsoever so you're like going on and on about something you can't even understand :kid:
Whatever our failings may be, we need not lower our eyes in the presence of Jesus...Jesus comes not for the super-spiritual but for the wobbly and the weak-kneed who know they don't have it all together, and who are not too proud to accept the handout of amazing grace. As we glance up, we are astonished to find the eyes of Jesus open with wonder, deep with understanding, and gentle with compassion.
