Please, people... This is a forum, not a text or tweet to a bunch of tards.  Please attempt to use proper English, or if you are from England, words people here can understand.

We have a large number of people on this forum from other countries, and for whom English is not their native language.  THEY write better than some of the spazbots who show up on these forums.

Please, just TRY.

This is a forum, not an english class where we have to present a essay report. As long as I can understand what is being said, I don't care how badly spelled a word is.

You should always give your best. It's hard to make a good impression on a forum when u typ3 liek dis 4nd dunt kare cuz its not speling clas. The English language is already being butchered as is.



Grammar Nazi and proud.

Spelling and proper grammar are always important no matter what you are typing.  Just my opinion.

I think people are far too complacent with throwing out whatever ends up on the screen.....typos and bad grammar.  There, their and they're are all used for a reason.  Two, too, and to all have a purpose.  Not beating you up, it just annoys me to see all the bad grammar.

Spelling ability and typing ability are two different "skills".

Then why waste your time, if it isn't important enough to you?

Hukdt un fonix wurkt fur mi.

i am more annoyed at people who use no punctuation whatsoever. It is just one huge run on sentence with no uppercase letters to help out. These folks usually have horribly spelled words, also. IMO, some are fresh from the game where they did something stupid, like forgot that they cannot sit still in the open and was whacked by an arty. They come on here all full of piss and vinegar and fire off what they feel is an important earth shattering thread, like, "Arty sucks, it has to be nerfed!" Or, "it is not fair that MM puts my tier 3 tank against people of higher tier! I want to club seals!"


I tried to do the run on and bad spelling on those examples..I just couldn't bring myself to do it!

You have to "care" to use it.

The Willfully Ignorant don't care.
