Does it drive you nuts

When people here do not use proper spelling and/or grammer when posting a question or comment?
It drives me bonkers and I have a really hard time not commenting and pointing it all out! Sometimes I believe that it shows the persons age & I can forgive that to some degree. Sometimes though, I just want to tell people that maybe they are having all these problems because they can't articulate what they are trying to say to the people they are having problems with.
I know that I am not the spelling and grammar queen, but I try to always re-read my stuff before I post & make sure it at least makes sense. Why bother asking a question if no one can understand it enough to answer it??

  • It doesn't matter WHERE the bad spelling/grammar, lack of punctuation, text talk, etc's annoying and makes anyone who types that way look uneducated and lazy. I tend to skip over those is not worth the headache of trying to decipher that "language."

  • I use my phone a lot and I make more mistakes. It won't change, people are in a hurry and don't care.
    Imagion if you'd have to try to read their handwriting.

  • Yes it bothers me but there is nothing you can do to change it. Having been on places like this for many years, I've learned that you just have to get used to it.

  • Welcome to the Internet. Nice of you to finally stop in.

  • Yes, it bothers me... but only when it's really bad, or really unnecessary. For example, the every other letter capitalized thing makes me crazy. Odds are not good that I'll respond to your post if you do that.
