Hey, ive been reading the forums for a while now, and i know they are forums, but some things people say are ridiculous

personally, the worst thing i saw was

"i quitted that band"

yeah, that one got some laughs... but a very popular one is

"Practising"

"Practising"


That's far from the worst.

'they're' their' and 'there' are bad.
Also, 'I could care less' getting confused with 'I couldn't care less.'

Practice is the verb

Practise is the noun

Quote by Baa I'm a Sheep
For some reason people typing IMO and IMHO just angers me.

That's just abbrevations, not grammatical or spelling errors.

"teh" kind of gets me. At first it seemed like just a regular typo but it seems intentional now days.

But honestly i don't care. I'm one of the guilty when it comes to grammar. So i ain'ts gonna worrys aboutz it.

Why the hell are we worrying about the spelling and grammar of others?! I don't see what's wrong with it, this is the internet afterall

Stop worrying about other people's problems, worry about yourselves.

It is actually the "Grammer Nazis".

The best was a thread not long ago that asked, "Are you a self teached guitarist"

But also the "teh" annoys me, and "imo", why the **** can't they just type " in my opinion"?
Also I hate people doing !!!!!!!!!111!!1!1 deliberately!

Tip to threadstarter: If you're going to complain about grammatical/spelling errors, don't make any yourself.

This thread makes me want to kill myself.

Particularly the several people that have tried to explain Practise/Practice to no avail.
