But(this word is 100% unnecessary) Jesus Christ do people like newdodge, rockstar, and some other less active posters even read the shit they type?
poster's = possessive
posters = plural


Names in yellow are noodle dicks that shouldnt be given the pleasure of a dirty grammar police thread dedicated to them.




Actually now that I look at it let me rewrite your whole post.

noooooooooooooooooooo

I am right, you are rong.

The point was even with minimal effort and multiple mis-spellings you can still put a logical post in place that can be understood.

I don't expect, or quite frankly even care about proper grammar, but christ, make something at least legible.

My 14 year old intern's emails are better than 75% of the forum posts. I wouldn't hire most of the people on here to do the $0.00 dollar an hour job that he currently holds.

x2 ^^^^^ I think what Kickstand is trying to say is that words can be mispelled, or punctuation can be left out here and there, but the sentance still has to be complete and make sense.


Im sure many of you have seen this email come around.....

Therein lies the problem. You should not have to make an effort to get it right.

Edit* Nevermind. Whiterhino already nailed it.

Just because fellow posters are hitting on specifics;

jesus christ used as a slang should be left uncapitalized or preferably not used at all.


Jesus Christ used as a proper name referring to the person should be capitalized.



Please continue with the funny.

I apologize for my vulgarity and slang use of hte lords name. I realize this may offend some, and for that I kind of apologize (because I can think of a few people that I like who it would offend), however for any other type of vulgarity or offensive language I do not care and I am hopeful it has offended.

I don't mind minor mistakes, but lots of them do bug me. As someone with an English Major in Secondary Education who also proofreads for a side job at a newspaper I do find overt lazyness annoying. I make plenty of mistakes myself, but at least try to put an effort into how I speak, both in person and in the written word. And, all my typing has been done from a droid in the last few months, with auto-correct and spellcheck turned off. Often I will go back and edit my posts if I see a spelling or grammar mistake. Whiter Hino is correct, personal pride is a strong indication of quality character.

My mistake I thought he was addressing Jesus Christ with his question.

Kickstand came out of the hole veins loaded with piss and vinegar, now he is apologetic.

What's more annoying, bad grammar, or not shutting off the phone/tapatalk tag?

Rob has been spanked for this already.

His excuse is that the phone resets the tag every time he screws with it.









And he can't quit screwing with it.
