Does bad grammar annoy you?

I'm not sure why but it just really annoys me when people use bad grammar....like when I get on here and there are questions that say "my dd is 8mths old and i cant make her sleep night.. I bottle every few hours and she wakes all night" or "ma babi gurl juzt wont sleep thru da nite and i wuz wondering if ne1 had sum advice" I really think that just because you're online, shouldn't mean that you throw the rules of language out of the window.

Plus these days we do so much texting and email that its acceptable among friends to type this way!! i got bigger fish to fry then how a person spells etc... .

  • words like diz and babbii and dem girlz , iight... stuff like that.... trying to talk ghetto annoys me. I see it alot on myspace and I just want to smack these people upside their heads. And when people dont reread what they have written to even see if it is readable.

  • Yes, bad grammar annoys me, but you can't assume that English is the first language of everyone on here. The text speak is dreadful, in my opinion. But not everyone grew up speaking English. I speak three foreign languages, and when I write in those languages I know I make mistakes that native speakers notice. Luckily, no one makes fun of me for it...they know those languages are not my native languages. I guess I'm saying, don't assume anything. Not everyone is educated, either. I am, so bad grammar bothers me, but not enough to make anyone feel badly about it.

  • Yeah thats what I mean LuvsDanika! I don't mind short hand but when people just try to look cool but end up making themselves look retarded is when it gets annoying.
