Actually, no, not all of them.

There are kids as young as 9 on here, who signed up with their parent/s. When you're 9 years old, you probably haven't learned about double negatives, past/present/future verbs, etc.

I agree it can be hard to read at times~

But, some of our members do not speak English as a first language, either. It can be a very difficult language to learn, there are a lot of rules & words that sound a-like.

Having said that - It's great that people are trying to promote grammar and spelling & a forum is a great place to practice!

But lets all try to remember that we are all different ages & come from different walks of life as well . And that we should respect WI's rules and try to avoid "text type" as much as possible.

I agree! I just want to jump insider the computer and change it! The only ungrammatical word I really use is lol (except in texting of course ) but I can stand it. I guess the reason I CAN stand it is because I love littler kids so much. And since this forum is for people of all ages it doesn't bother me unlis they go all 'no grammar' what so ever... Good thread!

Default Re: Grammar is good...SO USE IT!

Ugh! I so agree! It drives me crazy to have to re-read thing several times! Especially for me. I have a real problem with patience so trying to understand things without punctuation really bothers me. I wish people would be smart and capitalize (something that really bothers me), use commas, and especially use quotes! I can't stand it when people are like: it was so funny today my friend got yelled at by the teacher she was all ugh maddie why do you always get the problem wrong

Doesn't it make more sense when you read it like this: Today was so funny! My friend got yelled at by the teacher. She was all,"Ugh! Maddie, why do you always get the problem wrong?" I wish people would use proper grammar skills. I get so bored of deciphering what other people are trying to say! Rep for you!

I would go to a thread and there would be so many run-ons with no comma's or periods or anything!

Do you like this-

"Hi how are you I went to the store today and found an awsome pair of shoes and they were like the perfect color and size so I went up to buy it but then the cashier walked away and I waited a long time for her to come back"

Isn't it hard to read. It's mostly hard for me because I have dyslexia so I was wondering if you like it or dislike it.

Do you agree?
Yes, that can be annoying in the forum, and about the children, some of them shouldn't even be on the forum, like seven year olds. But, you could do text speak, slang or jargon on the profiles, only if the person understands it, but in the forum use the preferrable language: English.

Default Re: Grammar is good...SO USE IT!

Thank you! It really bothers me seeing all these run-on sentences and all the text-speak. Text-speak is okay, but some people use it so much that you have to really concentrate to actually know what they're saying....

REP!!!

Default Re: Grammar is good...SO USE IT!

I think sometimes it has more to do with a person's ability to type than their grammar skills. If a person is not a fast typer, sometimes they take shortcuts. But you make a good point!

Maybe it's just because I'm dyslexic, but when I see something like that I can't even read the words because there hopping around so much.
