It does get annoying when people start typing with incorrect grammar. It takes WAY longer to read! I mean seriously, it isn't THAT hard. It's ok if you by accident not do a capatilzation, but misspelling EVERYTHING on PURPOSE b/c you think it's COOL to do that is just way beyond...everything!!! so plz STOP DOING THAT! (oops I made a punctuation error on so! lol)
If I can't understand it, I move to the next post. It's as simple as that. What bothers me most is when posts are not readable because the font is too small and as if that isn't bad enough they use light pink or green which is hard on the eyes so I ask them to change the font and/or color. If they don't, I simply don't read their post.
hmmm.... if ppl r alwyz talkin lyke dis, den it iz hard 2 undrstnd thm. smtimes u kant tel wat they r tryin 2 say.
what bothers me most, is the spelling!!!! when people spell very simple words, such as awesome, wrong, it gets on my NERVES!!! rawr! haha.
the grammar doesn't bother me all that much, as long as i can decipher what they are saying.

Also, think about the young kids on here that are just learning grammar and puncuation! You don't want them turning in papers
dat lok lyke dis bcuz they see ppl doin it her on wi
do you? So, think about who might read your post before you post.
And BERT_X, I agree with you about judging people. I tend to moreso respect people who type in a somewhat refined manner rather than in some kind of extreme shorthand! I think it is okay to use words like ur, and 2, when you need to type something quickly.

I totally agree to all of you! I mean, I try my best to get proper spelling, punctuation, etc. And all the people who normally make our lives harder
cuz is soper harte ta reed wat the r sayn!
I mean, come on! We are not in grade 1 are we? Maybe if the adults were their children!
OH! One of my BIGGEST pet peaves... The "they're" situation!
You see, if it has the apostraphe, then it means that little mark infront of the "R" is replacing a letter, which means the letter is "A." So if you were saying, "My friends are walking. There going to the mall." That would be wrong! It would have to be, "My friends are walking. They're going to the mall." -That would be correct!
The "there" means something like, "My hat is over there."
And the other "their" would be something like, "Those are their cards." The "their" means that is it a possesive. Which means that someone owns something in the sentence, story, etc. What I am really trying to say for the conclusion is that some people find it hard to read commas, periods, capitals, etc. But we "grammar members" find it easier. The thing is, if you stay in school, study, pay attention in class, etc. It will get you some where. Seriously. You NEED it in life almost more than food, water, clothing. (Okay, maybe not... ) Say you were on a desert island, stranded, and the only way to get off was by plane, and there was ONE single plane, but you had to READ the instructions BEFORE you could fly! So what would happen if you did not know how to do grammar, punctuation, etc? You would stay stranded, or you would crash!Now that is how you NEED grammar!
Please! Take it from a junior-high student!
Thankz for reading!
("Thankz"-I do it for fun, other than that, I am a perfectionist!)
Oh, and I especially agree with you on the "medieval" thing, too!
Oh, and I have another! The "too"! If you write "too" it means that you are adding on! Like I did up there! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^And if you do "to" it could mean, "I am going to the store."
Sorry, but I keep editing this to add on!!! GRR!
