So, I've noticed how terrible people's grammar is now days. There is something called English and spell check! I will tell you all how to use proper grammar.

1. Use real words!!!
No one wants to read words with half letters and numbers like, some1 or b4. Spell out the words with letters! That also means don't use 2 for two, to or too! Don't use 4 for for or four. And for r, u and y, spell them out! Don't use text language, please.

2. Add apostrophes!
Sometimes if you don't use apostrophes in some words they turn into other words. For instance, I'll turns into ill and we're turns into were. It's annoying when you are reading and then there isn't an apostrophe in a word so it looks like something else.

3. Capitalize your letters!
Now, not adding capital letters isn't as bad as spelling words wrong or using numbers instead of letters.It makes your blog or comment look nicer though. And adding a capital letter isn't that hard! Just press shift.

4. Proof read!
It really helps to go and re-read what you wrote before you post it. Seriously, you look like an idiot if you get something wrong.

Well I hope that you have learned something from this blog post about grammar and from now on, please use proper English when you post something.

Have a nice day! :D
And please, be awesome with your ninja skills!

It drives me insane that people like the talk that's not even words, well they are but they are hard to understand unless you have been studying it for like hours, or if you're able to understand it in like 2 clicks, yay for you, lets go buy donuts and study other words that exist. O=O Once and awhile random words are fine right? In my opinion, all the time random words are just..over doing it and boring..

"teh interwebs is about freee speach".

The internet is about digital communication, not free speech.

Thank you. I am very annoyed at many people's lack of grammar. Also, the confusion of to, too and two, as well as their, there, and they're, and your/you're is driving me insane.

This is very ironic. The title itself has a misuse of grammar (make sure to capitalize all letters except for articles).

Well i have a few things to say


1. Its the internet for gods sake, you have a freedom of speech. I type over 30K words a day, and im not going to be bothered with going back over them and correcting every single bit of bad grammar.


2. If the sentence makes at least a bit of sense then apostrophies wont matter, it all reads the same in a human's mind.


Its the internet, theres a reason why wrds lyk ths were made, its so you could type faster, have a shorter converrsation and get on with something else. Who wants to sit at a screen and type away, correcting every spelling mistake, capitalizing every word and proofreading thier post when people can already understand them.


But yes, grammar is a dead language form on the internets and you are probably fighting the inevitable here.





However a Diamond for your effort just no more posts about this subject please.

Well, I'm on the server almost all of the time, no, sometimes.

But it went down for some odd reason yesterday and it hasn't been up since. I think the owner is FINALLY adding plugins!

And I'm 13.
