    Neither is grammarital. "Your" and "they're" were both used incorrectly.

    If you're going to be a grammar/spelling Nazi on the internet, you're going to need to catch everything. Otherwise, the only time anyone cares about spelling and grammar is in an argument.

    Methinks somebody just got owned... icon_biggrin.gif

    Personally, I do have some difficulties with misspelling and incorrect use of apostrophes. But I usually only leave it as a slight irritation, especially if the guy I'm chatting with is writing in his second or third language. For example, I grin and bear the fact that several guys from Latin America are under the misconception that it's "one men, many mens", ass opposed to "one man, many men". But when the spelling and the grammar make it impossible for me to understand what they're trying to say, then I ask what they mean.

    And sometimes, when I see a misspelled word in a message, I use the same word, correctly spelled, in the reply.

    I generally only correct another man's spelling or grammar when he

    a)directly asks for help with it
    b)pontificating/being a pompous ass
    c)sentences are so poor that I do not understand them

    Otherwise if you're fun to talk to an make good points, I'll either not say anything because I get what you're telling me, or I'll message you privately rather than make a fool of you in public. My boss speaks English as a second language, and sometimes I cringe at the emails that he sends to the office, but ultimately he's my boss and he still gets every bit of respect.

    usually peeps who are super effective at what they do are almost autistic on other fronts. I agree you should piss them off by publicly correcting their grammar & speech at random un expected opportunities. You miss the opportunity to know the smartest man in the room. And he is gay an you can add fabulous sparkle / shine to both your lives because he is good at what he does and you have a good live too.


    you meetup with that google software engineer. He has that big easy employ. Enables him to do hours at the gym.
    well:
    he is not going to be able to grammar worth a dam even tho he has a masters in engineering.

    you meetup with a self employed entrepreneur. He owns 6 warehouse buildings in the grow neighborhood in Denver. He paid his dues and is a nice kind gay man.
    also:
    he is not going to grammar worth a dam because he has legal and admin staff to do that.

    I like writing in proper English. That being said, I don't judge others who don't or have difficulties doing so. At work, I will assist in spelling and grammatical errors on documents. I would never embarrass someone though; not my style.

    When it comes to apps that give you a text limit, I don't really mind. I used to but not anymore lol

    But if it's on a normal dating site, yeah it kinda does. It really brings out the grammar Nazi. Like I cringe when I see a barrage of miss spelled words lol. But I think that I could look past it all if I really liked the guy.

    I don't correct bad grammar or spelling but I do notice it. And yes, I draw opinions about the guy from it. Assuming I'm reading something written by a guy who's first language is English. It says something about his background and interest in academics. Especially if it is a profile or something he should have proofed. If it is a quickly written comment, less so but it's still hard to overlook your and you're, its and it's. Get those wrong and it says you coasted through school and didn't really give a shit. That says something about you and suggests those same values carry over to other things as well. That said, I've known a pile of people who did badly in school who did well as an adult. Some people are slow starters or simply had poor role models as kids.

    Yes, it definitely affects my opinion of them. It tells me they're probably a lazy person who puts little effort into things and generally doesn't consider other people that much.

    If the satellite engineers I work with can't spell or use proper grammar, what hope does the rest of the world have?

    But to answer your question, yes, I consider them to be illiterate monkeys.

    Fixed.

    Yes, but if he's hot and mutually disposable, he's only going to be making monkey noises when I'm done with him, anyway.

    Most successful people can't spell. That's what secretaries are for.
