    Ah no worries you won't get banned

    Yeah a lot of people on here don't use correct grammer but I don't notice it as much as before, I'm not sure if this is because there's less of it or I'm just used to it.

    But yeah, I do agree with you it is annoying, but with so many young people on here it won't stop I guess =/

    I wasn't trying to start a flame war. It was simply something to think about. A gaming forum can be semi-professional in speech. I'm not attacking anyone. If this causes a problem, I could easily leave. I don't want to leave, but if I cause a stink, have it your way.

    I think those who would be offended may realize others feel the same way as I do about posts. I say nobody will really pay attention to you unless you can properly speak. Maybe I'm just too darn picky about what I read these days.

    I'm here for good information, which I do get, as well as some fun chit chat about our love of the Wii. However, I then get bogged down with the thought, "What on Earth did you say?" It's really a matter of how you, the poster, want to come across as: a little teenager who can't or doesn't want to write coherently, or someone who at least has the decency to write in a fashion that others can understand.

    It's up to you, really.

    Also, feel free to delete or lock this post.

    I prefer poor grammar over stereotypes...
    Not to fit a mold,
    Not to join a trend,
    Not to follow a crowd

    That's cool. I wonder if we'll ever break away from those sterotypes.

    You will not get banned because you are simply stating your opinion.
    On a more serious note, yes, there are people who type in such a way that it is hard for others to understand, but we can't tell them to change their style. I agree with you that it is difficult to understand, but they must do so for themselves, not for others. Anyway, enjoy your stay here.

    i agree. i ignore capitalisation though. still, i like to think my posts are readable.
    i'm young also, 19, and i've been around text-style writing myself. that is no excuse. some argue it's because it's 'faster' but i find it confusing. how can making a new word be faster than using one already stored in ones head. besides, doesn't one learn the positioning of the letters? wouldn't, then, "anyone" be easier than ne1? it just seems to slide off the fingertips much more fluidly.

    welcome...

    Posting in lowercase doesn't bother me, really. Check out all the blogs that are done in a lowercase style. Many poets and writers use all lowercase: Charles Bukowski is the man!

    I read your posts, dude. You write fine. Thanks for the support.

    Oh, Byu, I am enjoying my stay.

    personally I think that you are being far too pedantic . But thats just me . I dont mind the fact that not everybody writes at the same level of accuracy or has so called "inferior" languge skills .
    Whats the big deal ???
