    If yes, then WHY?

    I mean as long as you can understand what they're trying to say, why do some people get worked up about it?

    It doesn't bother me. I have to admit though that I have picked up some tips from fussy people on internet forums constantly pointing out mistakes.

    Well if there is a little mistake, then no it doesn't bother me. It could be just a typo.

    But if their whole post is filled with wrong spellings and grammatical errors - I wouldn't take them seriously. :nah:

    You know what does bother me? When someone corrects some spelling... and incorrectly spells a word in their "critique".

    Damn. I was gonna do the poor grammar answer jokey reply. Oh well.

    Anyways, it doesn't really bother me as long as I can read and understand it.

    It's not a frequent occurance on tsr. It bothers me on facebook more because it is happens frequently and it's more often than not it's abuse of basic, basic grammar and spelling.

    Nope but I noticed that a lot of TSRians get worked up because of grammar.

    Apparently, no matter how right you are during a debate/discussion, if you misspell a word or use a typo, your point is automatically invalid.
