The misspelling in the title wasn't intentional, lol D:

I've seen people on this forum use grammar, some that don't. What about you?
As for me, I don't really care either way. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.

I'm a grammar Nazi on myself. It's out of habit after trying to maintain proper grammar for the SATs...

Oh, and your poll option implies that grammar is the same thing as spelling, which it isn't. Grammar focuses on the proper usage and arrangement of standard idiomatic language. Spelling focuses on the correct spelling of a word.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Grammar Nazi.

Not really. If I know what you're trying to say, I don't really take issue with anything.

I am certainly not a 'grammer Nazi'.
There are many threads on this subject and also a group. Please use the search function this forum provides.

There are plenty of people on here for whom English isn't a first language. The better grammar you use, the easier it is for them.

Yes, that is true. Sad thing is, most of those who speak poor English type better than some who speak good English >_>.

Well to me, grammar on the internet is like a firm handshake in a way. But, not always. Some people just suck no matter what.


I think a more appropriate term would be "grammar fascist".
#15
I try to use the best grammar I can, and I don't usually find it annoying when others don't. Sometimes though I'll see a wall of text without a single period. That gets me. Still I won't be a dick about it.

Well, yes, I prefer to type in, and read, good grammar.

It's fucking annoying when people don't use capitals and apostrophes in the correct spots. However, the one that really makes me want to kill babies is when people mess up there/their/they're.

I use Grammar all the time.
It annoys me when someone posts, "lol i liek dat", and you have to translate it from illogicality into sense.

That's not a grammar problem. Grammar, in your context, shouldn't be capitalized either.

Yes. In fact, the other day my girlfriend was making a list, and I went through correcting all the mistakes she made in it. She told me to shut up.

yes. although i am not capitalizing and whatnot (because i'm on the computer), i cannot stand it when people spell somthing wrong or put commas and apostrophes in the wrong places, among other things.

i type out everything online..i can't do that "i kno u" blah blah nonsense. i always correct my friends when they do that. my best friend has a problem spelling TOMORROW (she spells it tomarow) and i always correct her..i'm so close to slapping her in the face.

My brother spelled "womans" as "woman's" one time (As if he were trying to use proper grammar) and it made me mad. I consider myself a Grammar Nazi.

I'm not a grammar Nazi, as far as I know, but I do always type using correct spelling and grammar. I'd prefer it if everyone did the same, but I don't complain about it.

Why cant you use capitals? Don't you use them all the time in essay writing? I can't see how people use them all the time in projects for school then suddenly seem to be unable to write in proper sentences the moment they hit the internet..

I hate abbreviations... lol, wtf, brb, ttyl, etc etc.
#35
I try to use proper grammar as best as I can, but I don't point out someone's mistakes unless they're reprimanding someone else for theirs.

For example, someone saying "your stupid."

I think people are idiots if they spell because "becuz" or something, and the "their, they're, there" thing.

I get more annoyed by search bar whining.

It's ironic because you used abbreviations of your own.
