    I'm ILI, I think... but I'm also a writer, so... :: i corrrect my grammar because most f my mistakes are typos.. I don't care if others use it unless it interferes with the efficiency of the information intake. I will take note of its use or non-use, though, and the effect it has on me.
    And this, too, shall pass away.

    well i was actually mentioning something like this to maria last night, because i dont really pay attention to spelling and what not, yet im still kind of self conscious about it (i have a theory but its not that interesting). but i mainly focus on getting my point across.

    as long as im understood, im fine with misspelling things

    same, lack of capitalization/spelling/punctuation doesn't really bother me, unless the message is really convoluted

    All of you go fuck yourselves. Grammar is cool. Capitalization is fun. Let's all try it.

    No, but it often makes people assume you're illiterate, and therefore take you less seriously.

    no, it gives ~utterly incompetent morons~ such as yourself a point to make, and an angle to take on discussion, where otherwise they would have no angle

    i find things harder to read if they are not proper paragraphs more than anything.

    like how crazedrat does, i have to make myself be more patient to read what he writes


    but i dont really care about it

    No it wasn't. She missed the entire point.

    She said that it is 'more efficient' to type without capitalization and proper punctuation. This is stupid because the entire point of an internet forum is to communicate with other posters (I am not arguing that with anyone. If you disagree, die.). So the most efficient way to achieve that objective is with clarity of communication. He was not arguing what clarity of communication is, simply that it was more efficient than typing with grammatical errors in one's posts. To say that "clarity of communication comes in many varieties blah blah blah" is irrelevant and retarded.

    lol, looks like your attempts at convincing yourself you're ESFp spilled over into extraneous comments in threads.

    Look:




    (blah blah blah)




    She said that it is 'more efficient' to type without capitalization and proper punctuation. This is stupid because the entire point of an internet forum is to communicate with other posters (I am not arguing that with anyone. If you disagree, die.). So the most efficient way to achieve that objective is with clarity of communication. He was not arguing what clarity of communication is, simply that it was more efficient than typing with grammatical errors in one's posts. To say that "clarity of communication comes in many varieties blah blah blah" is irrelevant and retarded.
    by saying grammatical errors lessen the efficiency of communication, he is arguing on the nature of what clarity of communication is. so her post is entirely valid, you can go fuck yourself.
