Default grammer and spelling police

It seems this really upsets some people, what id like to know is why they do it. do these people not use text messaging??

i for one cant spell for shit and my grammars as bad i don't give a shit, it dosnt upset me or affect how i walk ,talk, sleep and eat, it certainly hasn't stopped me making money... yet it seems to piss other people off more than me. why is that????

the strange thing is in 99.9% of the time the person doing the policing knows what you mean and has understood it. as im sure most people here have left school i would have thought it obvius that the inner teacher in us is probably severed better elsewhere

anyway for a laugh thought id do a poll and id love to hear feed back

I'd say nothing else to fill the day with, other than to read post's and make comment's on peoples grammer. Saying that I really hate people that use "txt" drives me mad as mostly they know how to write, to me it's just lazy.

You forgot the 'only an utter pig-shagger would give a shit about grammar' option.

Maybe they are parents and it is a habit to correct things.

Unfortunately I find that people don't care as much about language and spelling these days, and then the children don't either because adults don't.

A downward spiral, but that's life for some I suppose...
