Is grammar/punctuation to all of you?
Does it make a big deal? Do you perfect your posts, and proofread them all the time? Or just not give a toss?

Personally, I'm a bit of a grammar freak.

How about you?

I try to make a big kerfluffle of grammar.

It is of quite utmost important to certain individuals including myself, good chap; it increases ones credibility and implication of intelligence.

Grammar is ovablastic!

It matters to a certain extent, but not really super-duper important.

Grammar and punctuation are the single most important factors of communication. I couldn't give a flying shite if you can't or don't spell correctly, but punctuation: FFS, USE IT!

I do what I can to perfect the myriad of words I use in my fairly extensive vocabulary. I don't like it when people on the internet think grammar is floccinaucinihilipilificatious (yes, it's a real word, find it on Wikipedia with the -tion suffix instead of -tious).

I have to correct a lot of people out of habit because of this slight obsession.

FÜR DER GRAMMATISCHE KORRIECHTHEID


Quote by Le_Bunny
I take care with my posts and proofread them, because it simply annoys me when there are mistakes. It stunts the message when you stumble over something that's not used correctly.


+1


Besides, a cleanly sent messages averts the possibility of misunderstandings, thus removing the need for further explanation.

I think they may need to have a book handy for us intelligent people to use that's quicker than Urban Dictionary.

Of course, people who aren't native to our English speaking, I'll let them all pass for around 2 years, that is when they should have it memorized well enough to speak it correctly.

I try to use as good of grammar as I can when I'm on a forum, but I make up for that by not capitalizing my "I"s and saying "ur" when I'm speaking in person.
#27
Quote by archangels666
Yes, it's very much a big deal.

In a forum where text is the main form of communication, it's as important as speaking properly is face to face.



Exactly. It could be a life or death situation (though probably not here).

The text could read as:

Wait, I forgot what I was going to say.

It had something to do with a king freeing a prisoner, and the queen correcting his accidental comma that would have caused the prisoner's death.

Yeah, I try to spell and use correct grammar. Although one or two mistakes are not that big of a deal. Although sometimes I spend about ten minutes making sure all my spelling and grammar are correct.
I decided to change my sig to something big and colorful

i think it's ackward when people don't make a big kerfluffle of grammar.

I'm not too anal about it. The only time it bothers me is when it starts getting harder to read. Like when people dont puncuate or capitalize.

Then it gets worse if they try and post long paragraphs. It changes from their unending run-on sentences without periods or commas, to run-on paragraphs that are impossible to read aloud because of the lack of breathing pauses.

Exactly. Its not so much that i care about the rules, its just that it gets impossible to understand so i lose interest and give up.

There's something else that really grinds my gears. In some of the stickies (I can't be sure of which ones), the apostrophe's change to question marks! If anybody knows, could you explain how this happens? Is it an accident, or something bigger?

I would guess that's a result of the fact that often people write posts that they know will be stickied in word processors first because they know they're going to be long, and when they copy and paste into the forum there's some sort of mistranslation.

That makes sense. It has always confused me as to why people who know so much about guitars, amps, and the like can't correctly use apostrophe's, but you have shown me the light. I now know the meaning their punctuation.

Thank you, master.
