Default Will TAM just ban people for spelling?...

I have seen "ur, itz, gona, yez" and a whole host of others and NOT from a mobile device. Incorrect spelling and grammar is a huge pet peeve of mine. Anybody else feel this way? I am posting this tongue and cheek but come on.

I couldn't agree more.

I make mistakes sometimes, when I'm writing quickly or I'm tired, but as a teacher, those posts drive me crazy. I don't read them or respond.

My favorite is when someone says they don't want to loose their spouse.

It hurts my brain.

My kids are 19 and 14 and I have taught them proper grammar/spelling. They cannot STAND the acronyms. I occasionally use them and they get up in arms about it. Ha! Too funny.

I can so relate to this - and I post from mobile... So I go through the whole deal to include punctuation, (usually a series of periods... My bad habit I guess). :P

I don't mind shorthand/abbreviated words for texts, but when "writing" do it right!

And for love of mankind - paragraphs are appreciated! If it's too (another one there - to, too and two - lol) crammed together it can be rather difficult to read!

Glad I'm not the only one who has thought these things while reading others' posts!

When I'm posting from mobile I so want to type the texting lingo, but I don't and partly because it bugs the crap out of me trying to read posts with that kind of spelling. lol

I am very detailed and notice almost every spelling mistake and/or typo people make. I used to get bothered by it. I used to spend hours dwelling on things I write, even on a message board, making sure it was grammatically correct and flowed. I have learned not only to tolerate mistakes but also not worry about making my own any more, if I see a spelling mistake in a comment I made I rarely go back to change it. It really has made communicating a lot more enjoyable for me, I even relish the thought of someone getting their panties in a bunch when they see my mistakes.

I actually make less mistakes on my mobile (which I rarely use to comment here) because I have an android phone with Swype, so it is actually quicker to spell the long form of the word because autocorrect works better that way.
