    Seriously

    I belong to quite a few forums. Most cater to crowd in the 20-40 age range though.

    Is the age factor a reason why poor grammar and weird spellings of words are so common here? I would assume the average age here is below 17.

    I see so many shortened 'versions' of words that sometimes it takes me several seconds to determine which word the poster meant. What do people do when they have to turn in a paper to school? Fail?

    Just an observation.

    Most of the people here use proper spelling and grammar. But alot of the idiots that just come to ask one questions don't.

    I'm always steering to use proper grammer. It's more mature.

    if u talk like this then peple wil think ur very imatur.

    Notice the difference. I bet when you read the line above this one, you thought it was coming from a 9-11 years old. But as you read this line, it sounds more like a mature teen is typing it or an adult.

    Most of my friends who use AIM use horrible grammer. I laugh at them.

    i just dont use capitals or 's. i use some shorthand like lol and idk. i used to type all shorthand but i figured "is it really that much harder to type "you" instead of "u?" ive been trying to type 100% properly but to me its just a hassle lol.

    I do, do lol a lot. But I found speaking I.M was really getting to me when I was writing a script for drama and i put OMG for oh my god. So know I tend to not speak I.M as mush.


    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That away, when you criticize them, you're a mile way and you have their shoes.

    I didn't like the game. The controls were a major downfall, and the graphics were rough around the edges


    It just makes you seem more intelligent when you use proper spelling and grammar. I do however, have a tendency to use run-on sentences. It happens.

    And It's ok to abbreviate if you've already made it known what you mean by an abbreviation , if it's a common one, or if you're on the hardware or online sub-forum talking technical. But seriously, why are we abbreviating everything? definitely (does not equal) deff.

    I don't really think age has to do with grammar once you're out of elementary school. :/ I try to type good English with abbreviations mixed in for titles od games and such.
