  1. I have to get it out, so why not on Doomworld? I wish there were real-world grammar Nazis to exterminate all the inferior spellers and those who can't use punctuation or distinguish between too and to. The fact that I have to compete (and sometimes lose) in essays and other writing pieces with others of such a low writing caliber pisses me off. It's the fact that a teacher/professor might give me a lower grade on a paper than one that's riddled with errors. When reading stuff online (guhhh) I get so distracted staring at mistakes like the ones below.

    Examples of things that make me want to find people and punch them:

    • haft to
    • might of
    • to vs too
    • there/their/they're (big one)
    • loosing vs losing
    • i
    • its vs it's (big one)
    • wasnt
    • cant
    • your vs you're (big one)
    • adding an apostrophe before the "s" in a plural noun (like pancake's or house's)
    • doubtless I'll add more
    I can understand if you just had a random brain fart. It happens to me, too. It's the sheer volume of these errors that disturbs me. Anyone else bothered like me, or am I an old fart for taking offense?

      I also hate it when people forget what the spacebar's for. Not naming names but there's folks on this forum who will type entire paragraphs and it just looks like one big run on sentence.

      I always love people who spell what as 'wat', you as 'u', tonight as '2nite'.

      A friend of mine would often IM me like that.

      No matter what.. when I read texts or IMs where the words are bastardized like that.. I just cannot help feeling like I am talking to a fucking idiot, particularly when their first language is English.


      That actually bothers the shit out of me when people do that. I can understand if it's a text message and you have a limited number of characters, but I see people doing all the time on message boards, and even on some discussion threads at my college for Christ's sake.
