    Spelling errors don't so much bother me, as people who begin to form new meanings for acronyms or words. Seriously, since when did "gg" turn to everyday speech? Used to it was only used at the end of games, indicating "good game" now people are saying "gg fridge" and "gg movie tickets" I know what they mean, but damn! I consider myself fairly adequate in my grammar, I'm a senior in highschool, I have one semester left then I'm off to college. We also take standardized tests, I was void of having to take my standardized writing because my English grades were so good. I could give a shit less if someone wants to you use "u" instead of "you" every once in awhile, but when people start doing something like this: "d00d, datz da shiz y0, h00k me up wit that 1337 shiat" that bugs me a little, in my opinion it takes more thought process to type like that, then it would normally....just my opinion.

    I refuse to hang out with idiots. If we killed all the script kiddies, Defcon would be the next SRI think tank.

    stratification

    ... you see the great thing about this, is that you change your life according to your rules. It is all about stratification baby. Let the weak kill themselves and die...

    Well I got a Christmas Card last year as a recruiting tool from the University of Phoenix that said, "Happy Holiday's!" As we all know, there is no apostrophe in Holidays, so I threw away the card and will never give them my business for future education, nor respect anyone who went there.

    My wife is trying to find a hotel for 150 people for a week for her work, and she gets folks who send her papers and they cannot spell worth beans. So they do not get her business.

    Up the road a store is having a grand opening and they have a huge red and yellow banner that says, "GRNAD OPENING". They will not get my business either, I don't care what they sell.

    If people cannot communicate effectively then they are going to lose business and integrity. The sad part is that they may never know what they lose, because they never had it in the first place.

    haha, in other words "so the-fuck-what?"

    ... I would say that if you don't like it, don't read it.

    ... I don't see how someone's fucked up spelling/grammar should involve anyone except the person who has the fucked up spelling/grammar .

    I do agree with that as well, but here, these assholes are nitpicking. I believe that if something is readable, then just fucking deal with it.

    words are words, this lifetime is too short to worry about what people think... fuck'em ...
    BW has it right, why should you waste your time stressing about what people think about you.
    if someone says something that is a lie then why stress on it if its not true. if it is the truth then why stress on it period. but then again the truth hurts most people. i figure if you aint paying my bills i could give a rats ass what you think about me.

    ... Our freedoms to speak out allow us to say whatever we want, whether it is questionable, immoral, and/or unethical in the eyes of another... sure there are assholes, dicks, pricks, cunts, bitches all over the place... but without such a variety of people it would be goddamned boring as hell...

    ... you know sometimes people have nothing else to do but bitch about other people ... these are the people I just watch waste their life away. People can say whatever they want, if I don't like it I can easily ignore it... ignore it enough and the problem goes away by itself... words are words, this lifetime is too short to worry about what people think... fuck'em ...

    ... if someone just wants to write about something, they have to be prepared either way for what the audience reciprocate with, good or bad ... move forward, not backward ...

    ... One thing that I do that pisses off some jackasses is use "..." ... so the-fuck-what? :)

    ... personally I think people should stop playing their xboxes and ps2's and pick up a piece of literature and read once and while, reading will always help writing skills...
    I definately agree!

    ... though I do agree that it is most difficult to read something that someone wrote that does not make any sense even when trying to perceive what they were saying...

    neo, there is no grammar

    ... otherwise if today's generation wishes not to study the language they wish to speak, they must be prepared to be made fun of; for it is the nature of the human to drive the cripple-minded away so they do not disease the rest with lazy-speak... darwin baby... darwin.

    Its possible that he was just trying to reiterate his point by using bad grammar. I think the question we should each ask is: Can you understand the message that the other is trying to get across?? If you can answer that question with yes, then quit trying to make someone else feel bad. The truth is that most of us are just too lazy to type out everything. I dont think we are being graded on this.. are we?

    this is the forum, not a buisness desk. i (we) just don't care.

    so stop acting like a bitchy little prick and shut the fuck up about the way everyone types!


    go away and die!

    I am an asshole, not a prick. If you are going to call me something, atleast GET IT RIGHT.

    Wise words. More people should practice what they preach.

    I think that on forms it is not neccesary to use correct grammar or spelling. As long as you get your point across it is fine. A paper at work is about the only time you need to have good gramar
