This is not a thread for discussion. This is a thread for votes. Simply answer yes or no. If a plurality of the posters want good grammar, we can petition the mods to approve only those posts that conform to standard English.
I vote “yes.”February 11, 2013 5:10 am at 5:10 am #929418

no. incorrect grammer can tell u something about the person online, correct grammer inhibits the expression of people’s feelings.February 11, 2013 9:22 am at 9:22 am #929429takahmamashParticipant
Yes.February 11, 2013 11:35 am at 11:35 am #929430morahmomParticipant
I wouldn’t want to inhibit anyone’s feelings or get in the way of a good rant, but sometimes I can’t even understand what it is they’re ranting about!February 11, 2013 1:28 pm at 1:28 pm #929431just my hapenceParticipant

If your only comment on a post is a comment on the grammar, then you obviously have nothing to contribute to the conversation.
Still, proper speling, and grammer should at the very least be encouraged.February 11, 2013 2:11 pm at 2:11 pm #929434oh brotherMember
Yes! It’s painful to read through the comments. I’m not even saying that the postings have to be perfect but many of them are horrible.February 11, 2013 2:46 pm at 2:46 pm #929435golferParticipant

I don’t care to respond. I don’t think posters should be trying to block others opinions because they are suffering from some disorder which causes them to be pained by innocent grammar mistakes.
The least intrusive means of alleviating that pain would be to simply stop reading those posts, and if impossible, to stop reading all posts.
Or to get medication for it.February 11, 2013 3:03 pm at 3:03 pm #929437🐵 ⌨ GamanitParticipant

“Or to get medication for it.”
In another post, someone suggested that you weren’t ‘taking your meds’. You have to admit that your propensity to occasionally be ‘over the top’ can provoke others to respond that way, but your responses to Haifagirl suggest that you are taking out on her your anger over other insults.February 11, 2013 6:03 pm at 6:03 pm #929440ED IT ORParticipant

No, but it is considerate to make your posts as readable as possible.February 11, 2013 8:03 pm at 8:03 pm #929443WIYMember
I think that text speak should be limited to one poster and we all know who she is. This place would be a real headache if half the posters typed in text speak.February 11, 2013 11:11 pm at 11:11 pm #929444

Toi, tell us what you REALLY think. (Oh, and you left out the spaces between some of your nos).February 11, 2013 11:24 pm at 11:24 pm #929448🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
ThePurpleOne – I think you are getting carried away. Posters are complaining about text speak in these threads and you are deciding they are talking about you. I assume you are perfectly capable of writing regular English and the fact that you choose to write this way instead is your choice. They don’t have to like it, I personally find it extremely annoying and I feel bad that I have to skip over all your posts because I DO want to know what you have to say. I am also sorry that you continue to write that way even though it bothers so many people because obviously they would also like to know what you have to say. If they start insulting your content, then by all means defend yourself but I did not get the idea anyone here was insulting you personally. Not only that, if you reread WIY’s post you will find he was supporting you, not insulting you.February 11, 2013 11:26 pm at 11:26 pm #929449

It would help if the post box capitalized the first letter of every sentence like every other word processor no?February 12, 2013 3:11 am at 3:11 am #929456
And no…everyone has a unique way of writing and personality shows up with every word they type, whether they type it correctly or not…as long as it is possible to understand what they are saying then let them say it however they want to.February 12, 2013 3:26 am at 3:26 am #929457

“proper grammar” isn’t correct usage of the English language. Good try thoughFebruary 12, 2013 4:46 am at 4:46 am #929462
What’s incorrect about the term “proper grammar”?February 12, 2013 4:47 am at 4:47 am #929463
i wanna disagree with one little thing. I personally dont feel that spelling errors, txt typing, or purist grammar very much reflect personality. Maybe a little little bit, but not very much imo. Do you really use textform to show your personality? I think its more the choice of words than spelling.February 12, 2013 6:13 am at 6:13 am #929464YW Moderator-42Moderator
I vote No.
I also give a +1 to torah613613torah.February 12, 2013 6:40 am at 6:40 am #929465
oh comeon, please reclose itFebruary 12, 2013 6:54 am at 6:54 am #929467
SaysMe, I agree, but once it’s open, I agree with your last post. Unless all teenage girls have the same personality.February 12, 2013 8:48 am at 8:48 am #929468HaLeiViParticipant
It’s definitely annoying to read through that garble. I often do skip it.
I think we can make a Pshara. The txt’ers shouldn’t be hounded, but they should make an effort to spell out words and capitalize them correctly. It would have the added benefit of making them sound intelligent.
(For the record, I don’t mind if someone has literary comments on my posts.)February 12, 2013 11:26 am at 11:26 am #929469ToiParticipant
DY- so you cant read? the word is clearly nono. haha.
