Your kind of pretentious if you ask me.

Their not trying to spell those words wrong, and its definately not THAT wierd when they do. Loose the attitude and accept misspellings like that, as there not hurting the message being conveyed, and even though it happens alot, better to accept it and move on then make a big deal out of it.

I am praying that this was satirical in nature.

Actually, I was making a point. He probably understood every word of what I said, even though I made a point of using the egregious misspellings listed in that article. I do think that the whole "go back to English class," "you're an idiot for having imperfect spelling and grammar" thing is extremely pretentious.

I have near-perfect spelling and grammar myself, and I have no problem understanding posts that are MUCH worse than the one I made earlier in this thread.

Quit *****ing about other peoples' spelling and grammar when you can still understand what they're trying to say. It's not THAT important, and it's just plain rude to do so.

People who can't get their, they're, and there correct should be sent back to 3rd grade.

This made me happy. :). I love proper grammar. You should read Eats, Shoots, and Leaves if you haven't already. Brilliant book.

So it is not important to attempt to diminish the diminishing of our language?

Wow.

That is very sad.
