Default "USE PROPER GRAMMER!!"

Sigh. Another grammar thread. Well, read it anyways.

Many people complain and say "Please use proper grammer!" When I see this, I always laugh. 'Grammer' is really spelled 'Grammar'. So don't enforce the rule if you can't follow it

Personally, I think the grammAR rules here sould be enforced a bit more. I know everyone makes mistakes, no one asks for perfection, especially not me, but really... it is SO much easier to read if everything is spelled right or close to it. And...

BIG TRUH-
It takes less time to type normally (Like I am now) than 2 type liek dis. I timed myself typing this paragraph-

Bobby hates to get a haircut. It always ends up too short. Bobby bobs around in his chair. The barber has a tough job with this unruly boy. Bruce the barber usually has a sunny nature. Any barber would be glum when Bobby is such a cutup. Someone suggested to get a booster seat with a security belt. The barber shop might need to, or else Bobby might get an unplanned brush cut.

and I got less time typing correctly than I did typing with 2, c, etc.

Most of my friends have pretty superb grammar skills, and I talk with them the most, because I understand what they're talking about.

I understand LOL, G2G, GTG, BRB, all the normal stuff. But r u der? and do u c me in my red shirt? gets kinda old.

Agreed.
I hate it when people use chat-speak.
It's hard to read and annoying.

LOL, I agree for the most part. I mean, if someone has a really great personality (to me) I'll stick it out, but I mean if I didn't want to be friends and I can't read half of what you're talking about...

Default Re: "USE PROPER GRAMMER!!"

I personally dislike using proper grammar but, It is not that hard to do or read. Its not like we speak and write in different languages. Everyone makes mistakes in their writing to. Everyone says WW or WI instead of Webkinz world and Webkinz Insider. On WI we use short forms like brb ( Be right back) Gt (Gift Trainee) GG ( Gift guru) Birthday ( B-day)

Now that you have read this, you may have noticed I haven't used proper grammar. Everyone uses short forms and abbreviations. We shouldn't be forced to use proper grammar because, No one does.

It's ok, but sometimes it is easier to type just lowercase.
