    Please save the English Language online

    I've noticed more and more since I've been here the incredible amount of people who have no regard whatsoever for proper English. I've been ignoring it for now but a recent thread really threw me over the edge.

    I don't mind typos, I do it too. I'm just lucky enough that Firefox has a real time spell check like Word uses.

    But that's not what I'm talking about. Just stop butchering the English language......Please

    r is not our
    Their, they're, there
    u is not you

    Stuff like that. Especially if you're going to be involved in some intellectual debate. I'm not going to listen to a word you say if you're not smart enough to properly communicate your point in typing.

    Thank you.

    Sorry, but this isn't going to help.

    Yeah, so occasionally those computer n00bs come on and use that, but for the most part it's alright. At least websites aren't like that.

    i dont think that its that big of a deal...its faster to type and as long as ppl know how to type on the computer...and how to write in school or whatever its no problem at all...only sometimes those nerds want evrything to be perfect

    My sig says it for me.

    You can usualy get the age of people from their word structure, it's mostly the younger generation who type like they are paying per letter - I blame the education system.

    In instant message conversation and text messages I will use stuff like, 'ne', 'b4' etc but only because I feel it is acceptable to use it when you know who you are talking to, but in a public place (i.e. forums) I think it is just very poor forum conduct.


    Write like a four year old and I'll treat you as such Haz, proudly supporting correct use of English and grammar on the forums.
    Think before posting Ask a dumb question and prepare to be owned.

    FYI - Internet is always a capital I. Look it up!
