Sorry, folks, but I really need a quick minute to rant on this: Misspellings and improper grammar. It just absolutely drives me insane. I can't even
take certain threads on this website seriously because they are rife with misspellings and poor grammar from beginning to end.
Now, I know we all make mistakes from time to time, but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm not referring to simple mistakes here and there. No
one is perfect. I'm talking about these posts that take a special decoder ring or a translator to make heads or tails of what is being said. It
really sucks because I've seen some thread headlines that interest me, and then I try to read the OP and all of the misspellings, insane amount of
commas, and run-on/fragment sentences make it a losing battle. If you cannot produce something at least semi-coherent then please do us a favor and
don't post it. Or have someone help you. Seriously. No diss. Ask a friend or family member to type up what you are saying.
And if you are going to make references to people, famous people, historical figures, pop culture icons, anyone recently mentioned widespread in the
news, etc. and are unsure of the spelling of their names: GOOGLE IT! Please! A thread I just saw about recent events and comparing them to another
event from the past year or so is what inspired this rant. The OP completely mangled and butchered the name of that person to which they were making a
comparison. And it's not like it was a complex name like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. It was a regular English name.
And, finally, along the same lines, I am completely bewildered by people who either do not put a space between a "period" or a "comma" and the
start of the next sentence, or those who put a space between the word before the period/comma and the period/comma itself.
"Went to the store today.Bought some milk.Can't wait for bed."
"Can you believe what he did ? I thought for sure , if he had known better , that wouldn't have happened . Oh well , as the saying goes , you live
and you learn .
Not to pick on people, but anyone with a fourth grade education should at least be able to get that right. I mean no offense to anyone. Just needed to
get that off my chest.
Rant over. I feel better.
