    No. I use proper grammar, spell accurately, punctuate correctly and proof-read my work.

    But I don't think some people see the value in that. Times change and so does language. We usually like it best the way we learned it.

    ahem, correction

    "you ppl who use all the shortcuts ARE so pathetic."

    well, you see i just typed that faster than you did, and i got it right because i was not so concerned with sounding like an *** while i typed it. and, if these people are smart they have figured out that there is a neat little trick in windows word. you can make the computer change "ppl" to people automatically. just like you could add "u", "wuz" and many others while still sounding perfectly correct.

    i do agree that the gangster speak is a little annoying. that and the sO i LiKe tO SpeAk In WeIrD HaLF CaPs thing is stupid.

LOL i replaced right into a instantly "A" student yet I have by no skill been able to spell o.k.. This website is finished of those that do like correcting others inspite of the actuality that.

There are 14 books interior the sequence and that i'm on e book 4. that is observed as "The Wheel of Time" by skill of Robert Jordan. in case you purely like the "Lord of The rings" you may like this.

    I'd say not .But I do see your point.More rampant are the people answering questions that should only be aswered by doctors or othr professionals.It's true that there are some serious grammatical issues as well as spelling issues.But not everyone wants or needs to do everything correctly.This is an unfortunate quirk of human behavior.

    This question has been posed so many times in so many ways. It's a simple matter of laziness and just wanting the points. A little tip for you, the second sentence in your question uses and instead of are. Maybe you should be a little more forgiving of the questions with improper sentence structure.

    No, you're not the only one who uses correct punctuation; however, the sad fact is that most people do not KNOW the difference!

    Why do you care? You're not the one with the habit. Though you should get into the habit of proof reading what you've written before hitting submit

    The "normal" on this site IS bad punctuation. So, to answer your question correctly...? No, you don't use normal punctuation. Correct punctuation, yes; normal, no.

    We people don't mind, though. It's OK.

    No, but we are in the minority.

    The others aren't pathetic; it's the new way (probably comes from doing text messaging). It will probably become accepted, over time.

    we are not in school right now, but we are freelancing i guess. i did not realize we were being tested. i know what you mean though, because some of what i read i feel they are doing the best they can with grammar and punctuation. sincerely yours, ROD
