Does it annoy you when people don't use proper grammar?

It irks me to no end when I read comments on here and there is no proper spelling, or grammar.
There,Their and They're are 3 seperate things.
There - example: The chair is over THERE.
Their - example: That is THEIR house.
They're - example: THEY'RE coming with us.

Anyone else get irked by this?

  • A few more that make me need to kill slap people are:  the misuse of your and you're, then and than, want and won't; the constant need to spell ridiculous as rediculous; and the complete and utter inability to spell the word pregnant correctly.  Sorry, if you can't spell pregnant, you have no business getting that way.    Much less raising a kid.

  • It bothers me when someone whose business is communicating uses poor grammar- a newscaster, or a teacher when teaching her classes, for example.

  • I mean it's not even that serious when it goes that deep. Some of us are not English geeks on this site, but we do have common sense. It doesn't bother me. Now if I have to read the question or answer more than three times then we have ourselves a problem.

  • No. I don't get my panties in a bunch over it. More important things to be annoyed with.

  • It doesn't really matter either way this isn't a school or a spelling be it's the net so get over it.

  • No it doesn't bother me but I know what you mean.

    Sometimes I tend to mess up when I am typing and accidently put the wrong "There" in the sentence. Oh well I guess that is what makes us different in that catagory...lol
