AIGH!
I think people should have to take a test to use the internet. Okay, that's not true, I would be horrified by such a restriction. BUT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, PEOPLE!!! Is it so much harder to write "you" than "u" or "I" instead of "i" or any of a number of other countless examples?

AND WHO THE F*(&%#_) IS TEACHING THESE PEOPLE TO SPELL????

It's "people" not "poeple." It's not even "ppl"
It's "to" not "2." And yes, there's a difference between "too" and "to" and "two"... Learn it, embrace it, pass it on!
"Your" means something belongs to you as in "Please improve your flipping English."
"You're" is a contraction. It means "you are" as in "You're a fidiot." (that's a contraction for "flipping idiot, for those of you that don't know."
"ur" is not an acceptable replacement for "you are," "your," or "you're."
"Loose" means something isn't tight, or it can also mean promiscuous. As in: "That girl is really loose."
"Lose" means you misplace something. "I am about to lose my mind."
"Looser" means "less tight." It does not mean a lame person. That word is "loser."
It is "love" not "luv."
"Clothes" are those things you wear. "Cloths" are just pieces of fabric... you know like a rag, or fabric that hasn't yet been made into clothes.
"there," "they're," and "their" are three distinct words. Learn the difference.
"LOL" should be used with restraint. If you have three sentences in a paragraph that end with "LOL!!!" then you should reconsider your need to publish your embarrassing drivel on the world wide web.
Capital letters and punctuation are your friends.

I'm not asking for perfect grammar or perfect spelling or even obvious intelligence. But do you have to wear your fupidity on your sleeve like some badge of honor? (Fupitidity is Karenspeak for "flipping stupidity" if you didn't get that)

u know this mite B a god way 2 writ bc it saves lots of tim & energy but i dont no wether its worth the aggr@vation 2 writ this way bc i think if u do it makes u a looser but i coold be rong cause i've been wrong b4 i guess i should just b happee that ppl r willing 2 red my journul bc if i were u i wouldnt bother since im obviously fupider than ur

ETA:
P.S. Everyone should stop getting all defensive. I was referring to a specific moron, but not any of you.

and yes it is hard to capitalize the i. especailly on certain keyboards. and some ppl just make spelling mistakes. like people vs poeple. and teh instead of the.

and i HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE when ppl use lol. i HATE it!

An occasional spelling mistake is one thing. Habitual failure to write intelligible English is another issue entirely. My post was not pointed specifically to anyone on my friends list.

I find that "I" is about the easiest letter to capitalize on any keyboard other than those silly ergonomic split keyboards.

I don't even understand those keyboards. How do you type on them anyway?
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: May 16th, 2005 03:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
actually, I understand them to a point. They certainly serve a purpose, but they are so uncomfortable for me, I actually do MORE damage to my wrists with them than with a traditional keyboard.

Yep, same here. I hate the things.

You get used to them; and for some of us, they're a necessity.
From: gittygiggles Date: May 16th, 2005 06:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
i HAVE an ergonomic keyboard! and i LOVE it! the one downstairs ISNT ergonomic and i can't type on it. besides....i AM to lazy to capitalize i. i talk about myself so much that it is definitely too much work.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: May 16th, 2005 07:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
too lazy isn't the same as too difficult.

And I'm sorry if you took offense at my post, but as you know, this is my journal. Just as you have said that you'll write about anything you want in your journal whether people agree or not, I'll do the same with mine.
From: gittygiggles Date: May 16th, 2005 07:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
hey! i didn't take offense at all!

i'm just telling it like it is from "the other side"
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: May 16th, 2005 07:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
I still think it amounts to nothing but laziness and ingrains sloppy English skills in society. So other side or not, it still bothers me and will continue to do so.

My latest pet peeve: People who can't spell "dilation" when they're talking about going into labor. I keep seeing "dialation" and it makes me want to yell something about the cervix having nothing to do with an old-fashioned phone. But probly no 1 wud no wut i m talking @bout.

hmm... I hope my Paris Hilton quote didn't inspire this rant.

(And, I agree wholeheartedly. However, I should be taken out back and beaten by the ellipsis police, so take that with a grain of salt.)
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: May 16th, 2005 03:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
your post did not inspire that rant.

A moron in a community did.

Bob's Quick Guide to the Apostrophe, You Idiots

Re: Bob's Quick Guide to the Apostrophe, You Idiots

Sweet. Though it does ignore the tricky case of its/it's (just to throw a little spanner in the works :-).
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: May 17th, 2005 02:19 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: Bob's Quick Guide to the Apostrophe, You Idiots

actually, he has a separate guide to its/it's. I'll have Seth dig it up for you.
