You know, I spend at least 5-6 hours a week reading the intraweb and I amazed at the dumbness of some folks. I'm not talking about typo's or difficult words. Rather, I am talking about some real simple shit.

LOOSE is what you do to your pants

Lose is what happens when you can't find something

You are = you're, not YOUR. Your spelling sucks, you're an idiot!

These are my biggest two that I see all the time. Anyone else have some others that really tic you off?

Yes, I have a grammar peeve.

You spelled nazi's instead of nazis.
The apostrophe is possessive.

ya, u r piky.


One of the worst IMHO is not knowing when they should say I vs me, but even worse is when anyone says or types youse. (Pronounced yooz).

Another kicker is when something is described with the use of and, like "I ate and Avacado".

I think those are there on purpose, to further insult the spelling nazi to whom it was directed.

That's a cop out.

although I usually spell check, their and there and bare and bear sometimes slip by.

I don't correct spelling unless it leads to obvious and substantial misunderstanding. I think most people can deal with a little of it.

theres so many people who cant write proper grammer or speel correctly, its appaling. Grammer and speeling is so easy, especally if u read alot and write lots of short stories like I do/did, theres no escuse for using improper usage of speelings and grammer.

If someone decides to write something that potentially millions of people could read, they should at least take the time to spell their words correctly. It is difficult to take someone seriously when they spell like they have a third grade education.

Some of the entries on this site are down right painful to read.
