I try to be me and if I fail what's new??
Eye luv R. Crusoe…
Lets at least try to write in correct English
Why? And these days, what is “correct” English? (And why is it still called “English,” as opposed to, like, say, “American”? I’m not English…)
In my case it really takes all credibility out of what someone is saying, especially when discussing serious matters. A couple of typos or (worst) misused homonyms and I move to the next post or topic.
Doesn’t this mean that we also should not listen when someone actually speaks with “improper” English? Unfortunately, that would NOT fly in the 'hood... where I live and work...
But wouldn't you agree girls if a person mis-spells a lot of words it lessens the impact of what he or she is trying to say, diminishing good understanding?
[Since I’m a girl] No, not really. So long as the context is discernable, I’m cool. If not, I move on. But that’s the risk the poster takes… that his/her post won’t be read/understood. I can always ask for clarification if I need it, yes?
Hey Sweetface, a new avatar wow looks good, it makes me sleepy or maybe horny, I don't know which!
Hmmmm... let’s hope the person in the photo is “of age,” then. ‘Cause she looks kinda young – LOL!
the only thing that makes me a cringe a little is people using your, when they should use you're.
I am very guilty of this (mea culpa! mea culpa!). I tend to type extremely long (so my usual disclaimer and apology applies here) and extremely fast (I learned on a manual about a century or so ago). As a result, my “they’re” might turn out to be “their.” Or my “who’s” might turn out “whose.” I was an English major, so I should know better. And I do proofread, but as someone said, I don’t always see, therefore catch, my own mistakes. So what? Big deal? It’s not like we’re getting paid to do this. And it shouldn’t be a chore, per se.
Lighten up... and peace to you all!
