It's a fun link, did you read it?

Instead of being so negative towards me without reading my entire post before you posted, why don't you check out the link and smile and/or laugh?

Your just trying to be a meany. You knew people wear going to call you out on it. Your the type that likes to show every one how smart you are? Save your breath. I do not think grammar is a big problem. Most people can write something other can comprehend no matter the grammar error's. I hate it when people play dumb and pretend like they cant comprehend what you said because you left out a ' or a letter. Just makes them look dumb.

Grammar is a skill, just because you are not good with spelling or putting sentences together does not mean you are not skilled and creatable with the topic you are talking about. If you judge what some one has to say, or the evidence they bring up because of their English skills then you are ignorant.

Yeah, well, if English is not your native tongue then it's ok. Otherwise, this is approximately fourth grade grammar and spelling. Maybe even third. There is no excuse for it.

Actually, it is 7 mistakes if you are counting. Or it's satire, i.e. intended, if you read the entire post. Either way it's/it is good stuff!!

Haha, in no way am I trying to be a meany. With all the doom and gloom threads on this website I feel it's a nice change for some humor.

Music and comedy will reunite us all.

There has to be room in your life for a little fun right?

Good stuff, I always wanted a full page that explains simply how to correct a few words that are often used but never written properly. I cringe inside whenever I see these kind of mistakes everyday. Turns out some people become sensitive about it whenever you try to help them fix it...

Baloney. Then/Than, Loose/Lose, and the rest of typical errors are NOT hard to grasp. It's the sheer laziness and arrogance of people who don't care about what they write, but excpect OTHERS TO, that threads like these are made for.

Not someone genuinely making mistakes, who more often than not, learns from them.

I'm sick of this argument "If you can get the meaning, who cares!" - that's all good if you're 13 or have live in a cave for 45 years.

You know, sometimes it's not someone struggling with the language. Sometimes people just don't care, and if they don't care about what they write, why should anyone else care about reading it?
