Basic English grammer and speling should be achieved too avoid the rath of a grammar nazy.
#4
I don't mind bad grammar most of the time but when people don't know the friggin difference between "they're and there" im gonna get piss*d

also people that spell "cant" and "carnt" WTF??? go to school!
#5
I only hate it when they make useless posts to correct grammar, and contribute nothing to the thread.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.
#6
Grammar nazis are not really that smart. They notice a mistake, because they seem to only notice a few common mistakes, and then go on a huge rant full of bad grammar.

I don't mind them unless it's a small dumb type that doesn't affect the meaning of the post. But I appreciate that most people here type reasonably.

Hopefully they're English majors. If not, then god have mercy on their souls. :/

There are other things to be concerned about than how some person on the internet is writing.

Maybe that's what he meant. Ad is on UG!

edit: I watched the Youtube thing. TS is a whiny bitch. Imagine, he mocks people on facebook for wasting time correcting grammar and actually directed and edited a video about it.

Yet I loved the capital letter at the start of your sentence and the full stop at the end.

If you can't use basic grammar skills that you're taught in grades 1-6 then you honestly shouldn't be speaking or typing at all.

Exactly. I don't nitpick and I certainly wouldn't embarrass someone, but it isn't particularly difficult to speak and write properly.

they piss me off to some degree.

this is an internet forum not an English class, i don't want to be told when i'm making grammar mistakes. i know when i type here on UG i tend to type rather quickly without regard to spelling or grammar and i know i'm not the only one who does this. honestly, my grammar skills on a guitar forum aren't a proper gauge of my intelligence, stop treating it as such.

Talking and writing is different. Some people sound out the word on the page. It's annoying but no need to come down on them.

You think that's bad? Outside my house is a sign on the COUNCIL OFFICE!! that says 'The sun has got it's hat on'

RAGE!

People who have to correct every mistake they spot are annoying, but I do think that you should be able to use proper grammar and spelling when writing in your native language. Something I can't stand though is people who know how to write properly but rite liek dis cuz there lazy.

Not everyone is from an english speaking country you know.

And well...I hate those people that correct someone for little mistakes. But seriously...if you wanna make a post on an international forum please learn english at least so much that you can be understood.
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

I usually don't care how a person types or spells, and grammar nazis are funny sometimes.

There's one exception, though.. And that is when someone types using "U" for "You" and "R" for "Are" and so on.. That annoys me. Or when you add unnecessary letters to a word... "Heyyyy" or "wowwwwww".

Example: "U r an idiot go die u loser lol, neeeeeeeerd" (Quote from RuneScape just a minute ago. Oh, yes, I play RuneScape. I am a loser, a nerd, and everything in between. Kthnxbai)

Grammar nazis are there to make people realise their mistakes and angry. That's why I love them.

I understand that not everyone is from a country where English is the prevailing language, and I usually will check where they are from before I criticize, but if they're from the United States, Canada, or the United Kingdom, they should know better.

Sean117, please define "Grammar Nazi"

The comments in the thread thus far are very misleading.
