Re: Have grammar, punctuation, and spelling been cut from schools since I went?

Pff, it annoys me to. All those people from English countries ****ing up, yeah. I also hate it when those people do this:

restraunt (sp?), Phisicaly(sp?), etc.

Even I know how to spell those 'hard' words.

Re: Have grammar, punctuation, and spelling been cut from schools since I went?

I suppose one can see that spelling is virtually non-existant, however even I admit myself that when I first joined the Forums, even I probably used the odd 'u' and 'fink' but I've come to realise that spelling and grammar do matter.

Thankfully, a vast majority of the more 'experianced' to these Forums know how to construct a simple sentance.

Just remember that for every person around here that can't spell, there's probably a million others out there that can. Let that comfort you.

Okay, those who can't spell on a computer are retarded. The keyboard is the most simple "contraption" on the computer. If you can't memorize 26 letters, you sir, do not deserve a keyboard.
I think that there should be a virus on this forums that infects only the keyboard, disabling it for a period of time. This would detect every time somebody replaces the word 'u' with 'you', 'wat' with 'what' etc.

Re: Have grammar, punctuation, and spelling been cut from schools since I went?

ROTFLMFAO!!!!!
Actually this has been a hot topic of mine for a while.
I think its more of a problem when some kid id trying to type on a pc who hasn't really learned yet why the keyboard is set up the way it is. But other than that I can give you several reasons why you need to ask your question.
Today we are living in a society of instant gratification, requiring little or no effort on anyones part to actually research information. Laziness. No problem solving skills.
Why try to figure something out when all you have to do is type a word into a computer and thousands of answers pop up.
When I went to school, we were penalized for having a calculator in class, now its mandatory. ( now you gotta realize that handheld calculators were new to the market back then, and they weren't credit card size either.)
We actually had to look up answers for history, geography, social studies and everything else in an encyclopedia, which in most cases were already outdated.
Now with the "no student left behind" rules, its even worse. Because there is no longer that one on one, or slower learning process.

I made sure that my son ( who is now 12 ) learned very early how to solve problems without the computer, and he's now ahead of his class in every area. He rarely uses the computer to find anything out, only for additional information.

Instant gratification, super speedy information highway, and general all around laziness, plain and simple.

Now, I have to go back and re read what I just typed so I have no spelling errors.

Oh and by the way, you made a slight error it's , L E A R N E D, not learnt.

Re: Have grammar, punctuation, and spelling been cut from schools since I went?

R-o-c-k In the U.S.A.! (I dunno!)

Seriously...I dunno why people are so uppity over a few missed keys. Or a few extra ones. Some people that post here are 12....some three times that. (And in Swindy's case...even older) People are going to fudge it up every now and again.

For those who make it a constant effort to do so...well. If they can't invest the brainwaves to post conceivably, why should we invest the brainwaves to care? (Or the energy to write about it?)

I always found it mediocre to rant about it...because, here we sit...still facing the problem. (Except now, as opposed to then, there's actions being taken to thwart it. So maybe the bitching's worked? Who's to say? All I know is hopefuly, it'll soon be a thing of the past.)

^^ I AGREE WITH THAT GUY! ^^

If I were a black man...I'd call my penis the Oreo Fun Stick.

Well, when I saw someone put the apostrophe in "want", my blood started to boil. This created a lot of extra energy and frustration, which I depleted by writing this post

I don't believe that rants ever solve anything really; they are just a way for people to let out their frustrations, worries, feelings, whatever. It cleanses the mind and allows people to get stuff off their chest so they can continue on with more important things. While it doesn't solve the problem, it often stops the person from worrying or stressing over the problem as much.

That's just what I think anyway.
