not really. most people who complain about grammar just want it to be comprehensable and not have to re-read things.
they dont care about simple mistakes that we all make, just when it's obvious laziness that make it a chore to read.

I like 'Smoosh Speak'! Oh wait, it's what I am ranting about, but it seems so harmless with the word 'smoosh' being used.

You have accidentally 'cutened' your own rant, but no worries.

It's just the world we llive in - from text speak and all manner of random acronyms and abbreviations, to 'smooshed' words, I guess so long as we can understand it and know how it's being used, then meh - whatever.
