    Exactly. And while you can sometimes be understood with terrible spelling, you may unwittingly help someone understand you in a way you didn't intend to communicate.

    Same here- I'm not looking down on them. I just think that some people don't care how they appear at times when appearances are most critical, such as at work.

    I will notice when people are drastically out of form and I will ask myself why they may be out of form, but most of the time I don't come up with any answer that's particularly offending to me so ultimately it doesn't bother me. What matters more to me is if I can get what they are trying to convey. Which doesn't even always happen with people who use perfect spelling and grammar.

    I know a couple of grammar nazi's. They're hilarious! They get all riled up over words and letters on a page. It's funny. They never offend me when/if they correct me, I appreciate it, but it is tempting to mess with them deliberately and especially to catch them making a spelling or grammar mistake.

    Almost every post i write, i use spell check. Just because i hope some grammar Nazi won't pull me up on it. I have a thicker skin now.

    I am well aware of my deficiencies, should it be a crime that i admit it.
    I pay attention to what i write, but i am not perfect and have never pretended to be.
    This is your view and i respect it. I also have enough respect for myself to ignore your views.


    I have just finished a H&S course, we also had to take a literacy exam as well as there are currently 7.2 Million people in the UK who can not read and write properly. Yet these people work in all sorts of fields and excel in their areas.
    I think it would be an awful shame for these people to want to better themselves (in whatever means they find of interest) yet get ridiculed by grammar Nazi, for their inadequacies.
    What very sad people you are.

    In the grand scheme of things, is it really that important.

    Frequent neglect of grammar and spelling is rather annoying.

    It depends. Here or on other forums, I can overlook it for the most part, especially when English isn't a posters' first language. In a professional setting, it's really hard to take the person as seriously as they should be taken. If I can understand what the person is saying and can decipher their writing the majority of the time, fine.

    What I really hate is when people ignore capital letters and punctuation marks. To me, they are the most important things when it comes to readability of a text. I can do with missing articles and deformated words, but lack of capitals and punctuation marks really makes the text real messy.

    And paragraphs people! That's the second most important thing! Any paragraph with more than 6 lines or so is a total chaos. It will wear down the reader, it will add way too much weight on the text and it becomes so hard to comprehend.

    Did I already mention my dislike of numbers used as letters/words? U2 M8! That's dreadful.

    hOnestli , I dont think that spellng and grammer issues are relly a big deal around here if you undrstand what the person is tryin to say then grammer shouldnt really make a diffarence eether way. No what I mean/

    But it's understandable that some people are sticklers for such details. We're all different.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
