When my brother was in elementary school the teacher had to yell at the kids in his class for writing like that on their assignments. Dumbasses.

Yeah it's annoying and unnecessary I agree, but like people over react about it. Again like I said people are always so concerned about others and it's stupid. Why can't people type like they want without other people bitching about it?
It hurts my head. Molly

my 13 year old spelling of things has come in quite handy when having to take notes. WHO KNEW I COULD USE IT IN REAL LIFE.

Some people have problems with their spelling, they can't help it.
Why correct them? They probably want to communicate better.
Lets just accept them!

No, they can spell. Guarantee if they are in school writing homework and assignments they can suddenly spell and type just fine.

Teachers are always correcting me on my speech because, to be honest, I have a very limited vocabulary. But I get detentions for correcting their spelling? And they have english degrees.

I've corrected my teachers before.. unless you do it in a bratty/provocative way, I don't get why you should get a detention. Cheese

No, I don't. I'm like *puts hand up* "yes?" "Um...you spelled such and such a word wrong" In a really nice...non provocative voice. And they give me a detention and don't correct it,

My only guess would be pride? Like, they're the ones supposed to be teaching you guys, and if the roles are reversed, they are feeling threatened? Idk, i can't read minds lol

No, you don't notice because you're always too stoned to come in. XD
I think the last time I got one was like...year 8 or something like that. I just hold a grudge.

I used to be a grammar nazi but now I'm not. I'm more chill about it as long as I understand what you're trying to get across.

The thing is, I do have a ready-made excuse if I do grammar-Nazi occasionally... "I'm an English student." 60 percent of the time it works every time.

I do answer to that name, yes. Des
Aww, if only this were the thinking thread and I could post Anchorman quotes/GIFs/pics.
to stay on topic though, do people think that grammar Naziing, when done in the right way, can be educational?
