    Some people choose to do this. Like me

    Y u do dis?
    U wot m8?
    Although that's improper English, it's not like a double negative which literally contradicts itself. Here you are speaking 'meme' language, which doesn't trigger me, because once upon a time, I was indeed a memologist.

    One cannot just simply abandon the ways of the meme.

    I am no longer a memologist, simply a memelogician

    Spanish people?

    As long as you can get the meaning from context, though, what's the problem?
    I didn't call anything a problem. It just reads badly to me. Like the sentence has been truncated - which it has been.

    Not gonna try and explain, both are illiterate.
    A) That's exactly what I'm trying to say; both are incorrect
    B) They are not 'illiterate' seeing as that refers to a person who cannot read or write. They are phrases and as such they are 'incorrect'.

    Sorry but I think through this thread you are basically consistently proving Muphry's Law.
