    Idiots who write 'board' instead of 'bored'. Others too, that one just really gets to me.

    The worst is when people spell 'definitely' as 'defiantly'.

    I know! God, I want to stab myself when people make these mistakes!

    Also, when they say 'Please bare with me.' I mean, really?

    I've got a mate who's a total headcase. Watching him use facebook is just comedy value! He makes clangers out of the most obvious of words. Meen instead of mean. Acsent instead of accent. There are so many more, but I find it hard to retain his utter ignorance of the English language. While his spelling may be funny, his total lack of understanding of basic grammar is just plain annoying!

    The spelling of 'alright' meaning adequate/good, which has gained acceptance in British English and now widely used, should actually be 'all right.'

      I've never understood why others just can't spell, I've never had a problem with it. I dunno, maybe these people never read many books from a young age? I just don't get it.
      Huh? Did you just separate two independent causes with a comma?! WTF?! What on earth were you thinking? Didn't you go to school? Didn't you read books when you were younger? Or were you just reading the young books -- did you never make it past The Hunger Caterpillar? Most people learn how to use commas in primary school. If there's any common sense in this world then you would have failed your GCSE in English. Your mistake makes me physically nauseous. Learn proper English or GTFO of the country.

      What do you think "orthographic" refers to? I'm talking about the written language. Who defines what is proper? The dictionaries? They can't agree among themselves and there is no Grand Council of the English Language to say which is right, therefore any written standard which is representative of the spoken language is just as viable as any other.
      Finally: some common sense. There's surely a book to be written about why people like the OP get so worked-up over those who break unofficial orthographic conventions by accident (if it hasn't been written already!).

      What annoys me more is when people say 'pacific' or 'pacifically', when they mean specific.
