    Your Views on Proper Grammar?

    I'm sure that this thread has been made in the past but hey, what's the problem with a little revival?

    I was reading the last couple of pages in the "Ask Anyone Anything Thread" and got to thinking...What are your views on proper grammar?

    There are obvious Grammar Nazis around this site such as Brawny and AndThen?, although, what about the rest of ya?

    Discuss!

    My views are that personally, I feel I should use grammar as best as I can and that it would be better if more people can as well...Although, every once in awhile a little txt tlk isn't so bad as long as it's not overdone. If it gets out of hand, then I'll say something.

    Let's not make an argument out of this.


    "We've all been down this path before
    You're trapped in this town
    And it wears you down
    When we leave today maybe you'll understand
    That this constant struggle isn't always in the palm of our hands."

    Well...

    I am a journalism major here at college, and I spend many hours a day practicing copy-editing. When I see butchered words or just overall horrible sentence structure, I just kind of auto-correct it in my head. I usually don't say anything unless I just find it absolutely hysterical. For example...user "Kc3k" said in a thread that he would like to see "Beatle adventure racing" added to the VC...and that kept me laughing for days. I guess the only mistakes that really bother me in forums are the ones that completely change the meaning of a sentence.

    That's really weird. I checked this thread like five minutes ago and you had it correctly spelled, then you changed it. How...appropriate.

    While I wouldn't consider myself a grammar nazi, I do look down on you if you use ALL CAPS and/or n vwls.



    I never add friend codes.

    ...nevermind.

    It will take an extreme situation for me to feel the need to correct grammar. I understand that it is generally accepted to use a... well, lets call it an "abridged" form of English on the internet, but I personally prefer reading posts with good grammar.

    And that's a good way of looking at things! Hahahah I really wish more people did..

    What Sovieto is doing is alright because it's actually funny..Seeing people doing that because they ACTUALLY talk like that and it is just plain intolerable.

    Ashwii, how long have you been majoring in Journalism? Lol, if I was a Journalist and I seen bad grammar I think I'd flip =P

    I hate when I see people using all caps or shortening a word (example: using "u" for you). I can understand it, but it's annoying as hell. There is even an auto spell check (for those who use Firefox). Use it!
