    Simple. I don't think that all people that do that are stupid, 'your' just being lazy aren't you

    And yeah I know it's a minor gripe compared some eye destroying ways other people type online but still
    It annoys me when people don't bother to put a full stops or question marks after sentences. Is it really that much effort to do so?

    Without this coming across as patronising or anything, you believe that it's not hard for people to type an extra three characters and I believe that it's not hard for people to punctuate their sentences correctly...
    fair enough, putting this all in context, I can't be bothered to type in proper sentences on forums online or punctuate them properly

    some people can't be bothered to type 3 extra letters to a certain word. I'd be a hypocrite to say I type / text with perfect grammar all the time, who does. But seeing people do that is still annoying to me

    Lecturing others on their language usage opens yourself up to criticism so if you're going to do it, at least make sure that your OP is written in a better manner than it was.

    Why didn't make the effort to proofread your post? It's SO EASY. What's so hard about spending a few seconds making sure your post makes grammatical sense?
    Intentional irony?

    Tbh, even if he did write the OP is perfect English there'd still be some nobhead who would search through his posts from a spelling or grammar error. He can't win XP

    True, true :p:

    So it's best to not criticise others on their language use (publicly at least ). We all have our pet peeves, I do too (a little situation involving apostrophes :p:) but I won't make a thread about it because then people will be mean to me too

    Haha. I had an English teacher who claimed to carry around a permanent marker to put in missing apostrophes on signs :p:
