Pet Peeve @ 08:40 am

Ok... I have a huge pet peeve for people who can't spell a single damn word. You know who you are. Now I'm not the world's best speller but come on people! I'm not even talking typos here, I'm talking about honest to goodness spelling errors. Get it together! Spell checkers are ruining our spelling!

In all fairness...

...there are a lot of foreigners online for whom english is not their first language. I've also met some people who had learning disabilities and the like and really had to struggle with their spelling.

And then again, there is a large chunk of people online that are purely idiots. I don't think spell checkers are ruining their spelling - that implies it would have been ok without them. I think the fact that they're idiots is ruining their spelling.

I only fault people who I know should be spelling better... And what I meant by spell checkers are ruining our spelling is that most people don't bother to spell too well because they're know the spell checker will catch it.

i agree with you. I mean, I'll excuse those where English isn't their first language, but then there are those people that type like they're a fucking dumbass or something. I can understand if they have occasional typos, but that's not what they do; they purposely type like an idot.

What's also annoying is when people use too much shorthand. Personally, I don't really like shorthand all that much, but omg, what is with those people where all they use is shorthand?! and then, there are those people that don't use apostrophes and/or commas or any kind of punctuation, and its like, okay, I'm supposed to read that how...? and lastly, those people that combine all those things together:

"sup dood omg yd u say dat to bob dat waz soooo rood but den again im prety rood mahselfz..."

Heh... you said:

"Personally, I don't really like shorthand all that much, but omg, what is with those people where all they use is shorthand?!"

Sorry, I just found that amusing. :)

But yes, I agree. To sum up my thoughts on the matter: stupid people suck.
