    Just wondering if people are getting negged alot for seemingly innocent things. i spelt a word wrong yesterday in a quip and i got negged and the person said it was because of spelling and proceeded to call me a ******** whatever that means i havent got far enough in the language of asterixes to work the word out. Anyways just think its a bit harsh? Anyone agree/disagree/doesn't care?

    2 things -

    life is too short to care about something like that

    the person was clearly so e-angry at you, they couldn't compose themselves to argue back properly and thus resorted to being a bit pathetic


    edit:

    CLASSIC neg rep for this post: " For having the most nerdy looking band I have ever seen in my life. You're gonna go far, kid. "

    edit 2: anonymous positive repster, give me your name and i'll rep you back!

    Although I do hate spelling mistakes, everyone makes them and that does seem a bit over the top.

    It's because you beat them in whatever argument you were having.
    I wouldn't lose sleep over it.

    i really hate the spelling police. im dyslexic and quite frankly i cant be arsed to check my spelling before i post. people who think they are above other people because their spelling is better than theirs are morons.

    Horrible spelling should be negged!

    I would post a reason why, but I can't find my rant filled message on why I think so anymore.
    It got locked for trollin'...

    It shows indolence and a lack of care. Don't expect your words to be respected if you don't respect the words themselves.

    You don't need to do anything to get negged.

    If you cure cancer and HIV and give £2,000,000 to every person here, you'll get at least one neg rep. Usually saying "gay" or "lol".

    Often though, the dumb ones have no power, which says enough.
