    When I first started coming here I thought the forum was populated by rude, arrogant public school tossers, it used to drive me mental, but I I kept using the site for chat and info..

    After a while, I realised that what I had taken for rudeness and childish piss taking was just mostly friendly banter and in-jokes that have been going on here for years and years.. I was just taking it personally..

    As for the spelling and grammar nazis? Well, it’s actually a really good tool for keeping a certain level of intelligent communication going, angry young school aged low IQ trolls that you see all over every other forum and message board on the web, simply can’t be arsed. If you embrace it, you become kind of encouraged to take a bit of pride on your presentation, using spellcheck and looking up words etc.. So it’s like a free self motivated education really, which is nothing to be sniffed at in this age of cut throat capitalism..

    It’s a shame I agree, life should be more wholesome, less shallow.. But it’s not

    This might be one of the best things I have ever seen written on STW…

    You could argue it’s actually a bit rude to expect other people to make the effort to decipher poorly written posts, where the poster hasn’t made much effort to communicate effectively. 😉

    I’ve never seen a post on here that was so badly written I couldn’t understand it – apart from when it’s been written like that on purpose.

    On the other hand I don’t live on here – so maybe I’ve just been lucky?

    In any case, there will always be a billy-no-mates aka “Milk Monitor” who no one in real life will listen to but gets the attention he craves on here causing trouble . . . lol. Just ignore him 🙂

    How about posts which required you to put in quite a lot of effort to understand them?

    Conversely, I have seen many posts on here that are grammatically correct, yet I cannot for the life of me work out what the poster is on about. Although not so often since the great purge.

    Last night I read two posts that used the word plump in place of plumb. I was tempted to turn it into a pedantic pun but remembered the scorn I received the last time I foolishly attempted such depravity.

    Anyway, fattening up just to buy a particular bike is a bit much, if you ask me…

    He should of got a receipt

    Hate that! In fact hate’s not a strong enough word 🙁

    I hope stu is actually out riding his bike on such a nice morning, Still can help wondering if it’s just a Postlethwaite/DTF wind up. The OP is a masterpiece. You look once and see the odd typo/mistake then, like a great piece of art, you look again and see more, then again and more. To fit so many errors into all but one sentence is quite an achievement – are we sure it’s not just a wind up?

    But autocorrect doesn’t help at times. I have responded to Grum and the autocorrect changed it to grim by mistake and this week didn’t Mr Woppit get upset by being called Woptit. All genuine errors it seems!

    Grum to Grim is one of autocorrect’s own little moments of genius.

    Well this went well. Discussion has been achieved.
    I think that a few people have seen my point. And others have seen the point and mocked, which I totally get aswel. I use the forum for advice and to pass time when on the bog.
    I just find it disheartening that someone sat at a keyboard many miles away mocks someone for their spelling. You do understand but you are just being a tool.
    Yes I have been out for a little potter about this morning. Don’t have mud tyres so had to come home and trawl stw’ to find the best mud tyres, and thread about said tyres ………

    Read the title of the post and nothing in between as I assume that the title sums up the pages.
    And beforeyou start *Holds hand up* nothing to bring missen.

    Good that you went for a ride, it’s a nice morning (cough) “as well”. Since you are serious, then just let it be. It’s mainly meant as humour like a lot of stuff on here. Might come across differently in the wee hours though.

    Out of curiosity do the “correctors” for whatever reason, do the same when someone is talking? Regardless of a speak impediment or English not being their first language.

    Probably not, but then it will be obvious in real life if someone has a speech impediment, or English isn’t their first language.

    Its not always obvious depending on what it is.

    Then again I can sometimes tell by what someone has written if they are dyslexic, by certain characteristics in the mistakes they make. Similar to the plump and plumb example given above.
    I know I always make mistakes when I write, even with auto correct. I wouldn’t post anything without it. Anything official I write my wife proof reads first. The problem with some of the assumptions on here is that posters like myself are being lazy (another old teachers favourite) which isn’t the case at all. I bet I spend more time re/reading my posts than most, but still make mistakes.

    I tend to agree with this.

    Do you have to take those comments so seriously? Chill man, chill …

    We all know about maggots infestation and zombies taking over our lives so either you step on them or enlist Benelli M4’s help …

    Apples, oranges. I won’t normally worry about the same precision in my speech when I’m talking*, but even when posting on here I do usually try to make sure it’s to a similar standard to what I’d write in an official report. It is accepted that people make mistakes, and in that case I’d hope any comment would just be piss taking rather than point scoring.

    * though I have just spent the last week in a situation where I had to remember to call somebody “sir”, so was trying for similar standards in my speech – I’m sure the way some on here write their posts wouldn’t have gone down well.

    Spelling really matters.

    You only have to look at the ‘problems with my wife’ thread for evidence that a simple i/e mistake can change the meaning of what’s typed 🙂

    FIFY..

    is that a monster sized pie or a woefully small portion of chips ?

    i’m using the pint for scale and thinking that it’s the latter.

    it could of course be a half pint and things are even worse than i thought.

    I find that poor spelling really can be the difference between being affluent and being effluent…

    What a sorry thread, moaning and bemoaning about thread users and contributors…

    I’d suggest most spelling mistakes are down to iPhone/Pad/whatzit/ autocorrect/incorrect and/or fat fingers.
    🙄

    I use quiet a few forums and I have to say this is the only one that makes me particularly anxious about my spelling and grammar.

    Well you can’t be sexist, racist, fattist, faithist, coffeist, razorist, wheelsizeist or anything else without being lynched by some offended faction on here, so being a grammarist is about all that’s left. Or rather was all that’s left.

    Again Jaimie wins the Internet for his graphic skillz.
    I do think it’s a bit rich for someone who’s been a member for three months to take it upon themselves to lecture people who’ve been on this site for far longer, probably years. Ten, in my case.
    I can’t be arsed to correct other member’s spelling, but it’s something I really notice, and do my best to correct in my own posts, because I spent far too many years proof-reading reams of text in publishing and print.
    To the OP, I respectfully suggest you lighten up, otherwise you’re likely to find yourself on the receiving end of a bit more than light-hearted banter.
