Maybe it's just me, but I find it annoying when people can't even type a sentence on a post or thread without making noticable errors. I mean, I understand if your first language isn't english, but if it is come on!!

The thing that gets me the most is when people type loose instead of lose.

Loose is what Jennifer is when she's had a few drinks. And lose is what Jennifer does when she plays a Williams. :p

Does this annoy anyone else!??! :confused:

I'm sorry, it's just my pet peeve, and to me it says something good about a person if they care about grammar, or try to make things neat and presentable.

I just saw it one too many times and thought I'd write something. But to all you who don't give a damn, I guess it's not really a big deal, just keep it in mind. ;)

LMAO, I know!! :D And I'd say I've seen that mistake at least 50 times in the last month on this board, but hey maybe we're in for a change.

There are more important things in life that I don't allow myself to get twisted over a grammar error. No offense, but I've always envisioned people who get fussed up over such things as being totally uninteresting.

For that reason, I don't bother to edit any of my posts. I hope that they piss you off good :)
I wouldn't call them uninteresting. Just a little anal :p (and I'm one of them sometimes, lol) We all get picky now and then. It's not a pet peeve of mine incidentally, but we should all encourage good grammar when we can ;)

Anyway, I don't really have a problem with how people write or what they write. It's usually the people with the most drawn out, essay like posts who are the most uninteresting IMO.

Yeah, but I said no offense to the people who don't have english as a first language. And still if it was spanish I doubt anyone would confuse the adjective loose(suelto/flojo) with the verb lose(perder.) :)
