Default Grammar police

I get it if you suck at Grammar. I get it if you suck at spelling. I get it if you suck at punctuation.

But jesus christ do people like newdodge, rockstar, and some other less active poster's even read the shit they type?

I'll admit I'm not the best but some of the stuff that people write is just plain hard to read and understand.

Although you mis-spelled everything, this still made sense.

It's mind bottling some of the stuff people write. Obviously, they have never understood the proofreading process.

Think about all of the shit we used to give Framboy over a couple misspellings.

Little did we know he popped the cherry for our grammatical demise.

They're too busy looking for the next key to press to worry about these types of things.

I see 2 in your post that are legit.

I'm kind of a grammar cop. Hypocritical too considering I always post from my phone and don't usually take the time to fix auto punctuation, etc.

Facebook is the worse. Some of my friends sound like fucking idiots when they type.

I have a friend on facebook that I went to school with. He was in all of the special ed classes, and had the mental capacity of an 8 year old. He uses better grammar, spelling, and punctuation than about 90% of the people on there. It is sad to see the decay of society documented on social networking sites.
