Sorry, being that English is one of my double majors.. I could not resist. Truth is, I just think it looks bad to have typos or grammatical errors on the main page, so I am making you guys aware of it.

I'm with you Ramma. Things like that bother me too. I just usually don't say anything because people don't take it well when you call them out.



But I support your grammatically-anal behavior.

I don't give usually anyone shit about their typing because I do not really care about mine. I make mistakes specially when I am in a hurry.

But this is a web forum not a English class, so must also remember that.

As long as the spelling 99% correct and it is not all jammed together, i could really care less how their grammar is.

Also it bothers me when people become anal about it, because again this is not a English class my typing does not have to be perfect. There are no rules regarding you English an grammar must be good to come type here.

Sure if your a complete retard and make no sense then sure stay off. But if you can read what people type an its not all jammed together let it go.

Isn't Ramma talking about something on the mmanews main page? It's one thing to make mistakes in a forum post, but on the news site it looks unprofessional.

None of the mods, with the exception of maybe Boone have any control over the main site. Just not much we can do about it unfortunately.

Im still learning how to speak english my man, im not an english person and im not feel shy for admitting that b/c that is the truth....you know what i think this forum helps me a bit to learn more, the only thing that i don't like sometimes is...other ppl here are just taking thier advantage againts my grammar, just to win the arguments...well atleast im the only non english speaking guy, who have more than 2000 reputation points. :rtrp:


P.S. What more if i am 100% fluent in english? imagine that.


And i would shoot anyone whoever insults my grammar.

Yeah, that is more what I was talking about.. who cares about grammar in the forums (and typos).. that doesn't matter lol.




P.S. Warchief, your English is great and you shouldn't be shy about it. You write better than some of the English as a first language forum members :thumbsup:

I sure as hell can't speak about typos since I'm probably the worst one here.

I don't think I make as many spelling mistakes as I do typos but they're about the same in the annoyance factor. I don't pay attention to my spelling or typos, I usually type dind't instead of didn't but I never bother to correct it. :)

And I feel sorry for anyone trying to learn English as a second language. It can't be easy.

The thing that gets me is when people just type, they don't use punctuation or capitalization. And they type like 1500 words and it's just one big block.

Hit enter a few times every couple of sentences for god sake.


But it doesn't matter, anyone that this thread would help, won't look at it.


Also, spell check works wonders.lol
But it hurts Sundance, it hurts and it takes so long. How do you expect me to get my post count up if I spend all my time making my posts readable.

Geeesh, some people.

Oh man, the Giant Block Syndrome. I just won't even bother to read those.


If you can't be botherd to hit enter once or twice in a 2,000 word essay, then I can't be bothered to read your post.

I hate that, but I don't even try to read them when people do that. I figure anyone that doesn't have enough sense to form a paragraph likely doesn't have a thing to say that I care about :)

BUT. when people do the u r going 2 the store n e way I want to punch them so hard in the adam's apple their esophogus collapses and they die.

Not that it's a big deal or anything
