my rant on grammar.

    people who try and type using proper and adequate grammar but make big mistakes make me want to kill the next person i see. by no means am i trying to be austute in my grammar or anything, in fact, i could care less about my mistakes (ie abbreviating you're to yr, frequent comma splice and sentence fragments, etc). i'm just glad i don't make completely retarded errors like the ones i'm going to list below.

    but honestly, if you're trying to be real nice about it, just do it well. please.

    so a few tips for up and coming grammatics. yes, i know that's not a word.

    - your and you're are different.
    - there, their, and they're are different.
    - you capitalize words that begin a sentence, names, places, titles, etc. remember, Capitalization doesn't Mean correctness (see what i did there?)
    - after a dash, don't capitalize. example: I don't think you're a cool person -- Sorry. (WRONG)
    - there's and there are ARE NOT INTERCHANGABLE. learn to use each at the right time.
    - when you're talking about a plural, as in CDs, you don't put an appostrophe. ie. CD's. is incorrect. appostrophes are for possesives, among other things.

    random non grammar rant

    - misuse of the term 'irony'.

    now, people will post correcting my grammar and calling me a grammar nazi.

    note: I DON'T CARE IF I DID NOT CAPITALIZE THE BEGINING OF MY SENTENCES, ETC. i only care if you try as hard as you can to type PERFECTLY, but completely FAIL in the above fields.

    yes, this is inspired by you, unnamed person who will respond to this with a rage or correction.

    why the fuck did i write this.

    "Your dumb"

    isn't that just the best?

    your avatar doesn't quite fit the rant, though

    this is america and a new age that does not know how to type papers really and spell for shit. we have spell check for that which sadly should not be a replacement for it all. damn i love this new little net book. looks like the rig will only be used for gaming now. oh well

    Spell check = fail check.

    Also, an amusing bit on your vs. you're, from my friends at FML.

    Today, I was flirting via text with a coworker. Things started getting heated, and I wanted to send her a sexy picture. I asked if she had any suggestions. She said, "Your nuts!" She meant, "YOU'RE nuts." I sent her a photo of my junk. I offended a co-worker with incriminating evidence. FML.

    hey you didn't capitalize the beginning* on any of your sentences

    Nobody's a Nazi* here either

    Also, you need to capitalize the I's mid sentence. it's proper.

    Man, I hope you didn't misunderstand my post and think I was calling you dumb. >_>

    Hey! Be nice to kiki. Everyone needs to rant about grammar. And as far as I'm concerned, kiki happens to be a cunning linguist.
  13. Jun 29, 2008
    That's just it, I wasn't calling her dumb. I just used that example because it's hilarious when people type that.

    I meant it. I need a good hug from time to time. I just thought she wanted one.
  16. Jul 17, 2009
    Fair enough. I didn't mean to make it seem you were calling her dumb, if I did I apologize :razz:.

    I'm not going for perfect grammar, but "yr ur im dont cant wont y u" and shit like that pisses me off.

    And yes, it's Ironic you made this. :wub:
  19. Jan 7, 2009
    Lol. Kiki, I love you for posting this.

    One thing that really pisses me off, though, is that the horrendous grammar to be found on the internet is so prolific that I sometimes find myself inadvertently and accidentally making mistakes like "your/you're" where I, under normal circumstances, would not.
