I Noticed This...

Post by xxlilcubancutie0 » Sun Aug 10, 2003 4:21 pm

Hey I don't know if anyone has noticed this, but in almost every topic that I read, the author has very bad grammer. I am not suggesting that I have perfect grammer but for my age I practically do better at this than others.

yes. you learn to live with it. it annoys me too, especially when people say "w/" instead of "with" and stuff like that. However, you have to bear in mind that this isnt like writing a formal letter, and everyone should be allowed to express themselves freely. You just got to put up with it really!!



( i checked my grammer twice after writing this! imagine messing up your grammar in a post about people who mess up their grammar) lolol

lol... Most buckle under the pressure of greatness :P .... I hope you all realize i'm kidding... The slang rule seems like a good idea, I mean when something is all written in what looks like some foreign language it gets rediculous.. And it doesn't help the person who needs help if they cant understand... Its a chit-chat type of thing..

i sometimes give up on trying to read posts because of it. i agree that it is highly annoying when excessive slang and abbreviations are used...but you learn to live with it.

what's annoying is when people on here reply to your post that they can't vote on your poll because of your "crude grammar and slang". we arent in a fucking school and people such as myself abbreviate just as they do when they talk to their friends online. maybe some dont maybe some do but this isnt a formal essay like someone on here said.



why do people on this site find the most stupid things to fight about and discuss? were here to talk about our problems and issues, not show each other who has better grammar.




i was being honest, not trying to start a fight. i couldn't understand your poll, and so i didn't vote because of that...and posted my reasons. is that so horrible?

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.

It gets drastic when instead of using abbreviations, the word actually becomes longer than it was before. Like this:

I = eye

everyone = evereeone

correctly = correctlee

my = mah



And I even saw someone write shit as schitt :blink:

It bugs me at times. What bugs me most, over the slang talk, is the lack of using punctuation at all. It gets so hard to read when the sentence is running on and on and on. When a person just uses "and" and "but" and whatever other word they can come up with to continue their story, I get frustrated. I'm usually tempted to edit and add the punctuation just because it's hard to read. But I don't... I get over it. Still, it's aggrivating when you want to help someone but you have a hard time understanding what they are saying.
