Dude poor grammar in work emails drives me crazy more than anything else. I've seen grammar in professional emails that rivals magna's by far.

bad grammar and spelling is essentially apathy about the language. and apathy about the language is disrespectful to speakers of the language.

if i'm not sure how to spell a word, I have a whole lot of internet to check my spelling.

i can't say I relate because I can't relate. i see people type words wrong and I wonder how they came up with the spelling. did they guess? did they learn it wrong? did they just make something up? seriously. seryuslee.

Magna's shitty grammar is under the grandfather clause of old members.

Word! I may let some slip every now and then, but I try to do it all by the books. I have lost a lot of English skills since school, since I don't have to write much in my job. I find myself using Google for WAY to many words, some that I am quite embarrassed (that word <---) about. Thank god for Google Chrome too, since it has a spell check and lets me know when I'm being a back woods hick of a speller. No excuse to have bad grammar and spelling. I be tipe'n n **** sun. Dis grammer iz fo tha burdz...

Since most of you probably haven't read my new READ THIS FIRST sticky in the M&G forum, here's my take on punctuation and grammar:

Nice thread, but I noticed some spelling errors. Do I get to call you a noob?

Well at first I thought that all the internet misspellings and grammar butchery were intentional attempts at humor. Then, when I found out that a lot of people were serious, I felt what the Japanese refer to as "haji" or feeling ashamed by witnessing other people's shameful acts. I failed grade school and flunked out of college but have done decently in life thanks to self-education so I never took the high school dropout statistic too seriously. A lot of people who are fucktarded in their spelling/grammar are actually pretty darn fucktarded in broad areas of basic nonspecialized knowledge about the world and the US society. The DC area has a decent amount of pretty educated and intelligent people as well as decent pooschools so I frequently forget that the bell curve is sadly valid.

That **** said, the purpose of language is to communicate abstract concepts right? While a lot of you have smashed the spellingstupid, I usually do understand what most of them are trying to say. I personally find that the lack of spelling and grammar on the internets adds a special kind of cute quaint humorous colloquialism.
