I do not understand some people and their lack of grammar and punctuation online.

When I was 16, I became as many now call a "Grammar Nazi".
Before I was 16, I would type without grammar and punctuation.

I cannot understand how anyone who is over the age of 15 can type without the use of basic grammar and punctuation.

Many common things I see people do include:
1."Accidentcally" using your when they mean you're.
2. "Accidentcally" using there/their when they mean they're.
3. "Forgetting" to capitlise (proper) nouns (esspecially I) and misusing capital letters.
4. "Forgetting" to use questions marks/full stop to end a question/sentence. (A question without a question mark isn't a question and a sentence without a full stop isn't finished)
5. "Forgetting to use apostrophes.
6. The misuse of excamlation marks and other forms of puncuration marks.

I can't take anyone who types without basic grammar and puncuration seriously. I can understand if a 7 year old child types without it as they're still learning but someone who knows how to use grammar and puncuration shouldn't be typing like they're a child!

People try to defend their lack of grammar and puncuration by saying some of the following:

1. "I'm not in an English class."
2. "People know what I mean."
3. "I'm lazy."

I personally do not think any of these excuses are valid.

If you do not use grammar and puncuration people may/most likely will think you're stupid/uneducated.

Theres a wonderful thing called auto correct. Also, when I've been typing on my ipad, I've accidentally pressed ! instead of ? when asking a question.

Were your spelling mistakes done 'Accidentcally'? There again, 'puncuration' can be a difficult subject. :lol:
