    Everyone seems to be slipping into a grammatical rut as of late, just read some of the threads. "u" is replacing you, "n" is replacing and, "I" is never capitalized in these people's threads.

    The great wall of text is now towering over me whenever I enter a "please help me" thread, and I feel slightly overwhelmed, who wants to read that?

    Seriously people, take 5 minutes and make your thread look pretty, and it saves you hours of people coming in and saying "bull, I'm not taking my time to read THAT!"

    Also, I'm growing quite weary of these people that just come in, join, and post the hell away without reading the rules. Post your threads in the right place, don't post help with X game in introductions... Just my little rant, but I would quite appreciate it if it were followed. Feel free to post what you feel should be done to fix it or what is bothering you about this free flowing population of spammers and trolls.

    I consider myself a "grammar nazi" to some extent, but this is the Internet, and it is very naive to expect passable grammar in this realm.

    We all are annoyed when people disregard the rules. Nothing new. You can't expect a utopian forum; the moderation staff is here for a reason.

    I personally don't mind people using TXT chat, it saves time, so it's understandable. I used to use it a lot but after doing many many essays, I've gotten used to typing normally. And I also don't really notice when people post in the wrong sections, I just open the post and read (if I feel like it).

    I also try my best to punctuate and spell everything correctly.
    I also use proper grammar, or at least try to.

    But Axis is right - this is the internet.
    People just don't care. Neither do I.

    I have to actually try to type in text / internet language >_>....
    I'm so used to typing this way.

    Heck, I do the same for all of my texts and IMs I send.

    I only care when people use
    l33t talk/whatever
    or use "v" (yes, a v) for the word you.

    That was very easy to understand, honestly LOL.
    Get over it. It is the Internet. I only have problems with people who post things we cannot understand. Like completely ridiculous use of the language is when i get mad.
    Other than that, its not big deal!

    Okay, that's an exaggeration. Just sound it out.. like how you first started learning to read.
