Stop bad grammar! Answered

I've been noticing around our community, there are people typing liek ths. WTF is up with that? Nobody understands it, and nobody talks like that in the real world! I mean, really! Nobody would walk up to a friend and say "Dat vid on youtube wus lol rigt?". See how idiotic that sounds?! Now i hope you learn from this, and go type normally.

Stop bad grammar is an incomplete sentence, spelling that way is spelling not grammar, WTF is bad grammar and swearing is considered bad grammar by many people. And people talk like that, people use ain't and other incorrect grammar all the time. See how idiotic that sounds is not a complete sentence. You did not capitalize the I in "Now i hope you learn from this"

Being a grammar nazi benefits no one.

"Stop bad grammar!" is not an incomplete sentence. It's an imperative sentence, for which an explicit subject is not required, it is implicit. Swearing is not bad grammar; it may be profane or obscene, but can be perfectly grammatical. "See how idiotic that sounds?" is a complete sentence. The subject, "Do you," is trivially implied by the sentence's status as a question, which suggests the existence of the person being questioned.

If you're going to be a grammar nazi, and especially if you are going to try to call someone to task for their grammar, you'd better know what you're talking about, or you just sound ignorant and presumptuous.

Then you should do so in a manner which properly matches the number of your subject and object.

I agree with you. This will become a habit when you're older and you will accidentally write professional documents such as essays and emails/letters to your boss using this and the reader will be unimpressed. Plus, it's just annoying!

You know what pisses me off just as much as someone with bad grammar?  Grammar police, and more so at those who make errors that they preach against.

I am FOR good grammar, and AGAINST grammar police.

Much as I agree with your sentiment, I cannot help but notice that your post contains one spelling mistake, four grammatical errors and a large instance of unintentional irony.

In addition, I am afraid that I have noticed that young people do talk like that, under the impression that it is (a) cool and (b) not how adults talk.

People talking like that is not bad grammar, it is just them speaking like fools.

Bad grammar, and spelling on the other hand often relates to how well a person understands english, not many people would intentionally use bad grammar, most the time they just do not understand it fully.

Wow. Just wow. Seriously, grammer? Wow.
Also, "See how idiotic that sounds!" should really be "See how idiotic that sounds?!". It's a question, after all.

On another note, why's this in "random fun"? Is this fun?
