It's even more surprising because GAG has spell check, and for those posting a question it has a Preview button before you press Submit. I understand the difficulties for GAGers who use English as a second language, but not the people who should know better as native speakers. I don't understand why people don't have more pride in what they're sending out. It's not that difficult to compose a coherent sentence.
The mobile version of the site messes with spellcheck so it can be really difficult to know for sure if a word is misspelled and if you open another tab to check it the text field gets suuuuuuper lagy. I also tend to leave off commas on mobile too.
However if someone uses u instead of you or please instead of please unironically I have zero patience and don't even read the comment or post. We're not being charged by the character anymore. Speak like an educated person.
It annoys me and I used to constantly correct people when I was younger but I've learned since then it's better to just leave it alone. Nobody's perfect and some of us really struggle with grammar. As long as you can understand what they're trying to tell you, there's not much sense being nit picky.
Nope, right there with you, it is part of the problem with what people call 'today's youth' we really aren't all that bad! But you also have to take into consideration that not every ones first language is English so that accounts for some of it. It is the abbreviated words and the people who actually speak English as their first language that make me mad.
I do correct the person more times than not! It drives me insane. You'd think the genius adults calling a 13 year old stupid would at least use proper grammar and correct spelling while doing so. Jeez.
I apologize in behalf all the people who speaks English not as their first language... But to the rest, they should be stoned :p just kidding. I always get mad when I see people that write wrong in Spanish.
I hate when my computer change my words and what I say sounds weird.
