Does it irritate anyone else..?

Does it irritate anyone else when you try to read a post and the spelling is so bad or the grammar so horrendous you can't even figure out what they are trying to say?

  • It bothers me to no end. I mean, if there are honest mistakes, (ot instead of to, a space in a wo rd, a hard to spell word that has been mispelled, had insted of has, etc) it doesn't bother me. I can usually "translate." But for the whole post to be in all caps and completely misspelled, it really irks me. I don't necessarily think those people need to go back to school, just take a hint from all the other posters. (BTW - pp - I only have a HS Diploma - but bad grammer is one of my pet peeves. Its not always lack of schooling that causes this.)

  • nah, somethings to consider....not everyone can type and so they have to find the keys more than work on spelling, they may have a learning disorder or they could just be very young and learning still and ANSWERS doesnt have spell check lol. Its all good.

  • It bugs me when it is me. If I type to fast, and then submit I hate seeing my mistakes. Other times not so much. I try not to judge on spelling. I'm more worried when I see the cheating sex stuff that I can read, if you know what I mean.

  • It definitely bugs me! I don't mind if a few words are spelled wrong, or if the punctuation isn't perfect... but some of these abbreviations piss me off!

  • I look at it as a challenge to figure out the Ebonics of others....like a word puzzle. It's fun and sometimes some of them are soo funny it's even funnier to read them out load to yourself just to hear how funny it sounds. Some people dont have a strong command of the English language and you have to give them credit for trying!!
