Word I Hate - pwnd
Alright, this topic seriously need to be adressed here on Gaia. I'm not sure if people just can't spell or if they do it on purpose. Sometimes I really do wonder.
Since when has lov3 been a word? What's with all the 'e's being replaced by '3'? What the hell! Who invented that? When I find out I'll punch you in the face. I'm not even kidding.
But back to my rant topic, why can't anyone write in standard written English anymore? I mean, I understand one or two mistakes, but the amount I see is ridiculous. Doesn't it bug anyone else? Doesn't anyone go to English class anymore? Doesn't it bug you that you don't know if what your typing is grammatically correct? If I'm not sure of the spelling of a certain word I don't even use it! I'd rather speak simply and be correct than use large words and look like an idiot.
And what's with all the 'Literate RP's', you shouldn't have to post that!
People are literate already!
Most just don't care about the rules of standard written English!
Some words are funny the first couple of times but when people use them repeatedly like 'pwnd' or 'lawl', it just loses some of it's magic.
And please people, when you're making exclaimation points, remember to hold down the shift key! I'm going to kill myself if I see one more 'lol!!!1!!!'. I really will go off the deep end the next time!
I'm not saying that people are Gaia are illiterate and stupid, I'm just saying maybe you should reread what you type or use spellcheck. Doesn't it make you feel dumb when you don't spell something right?
One thing I don't like is writting '(sp?)' after a word. If you can take the time out to type that, can't you take the time out to spellcheck the word in Microsoft?
Come on, stop being lazy people. English isn't that hard to follow.
