OK first of all I need to get this off my chest: I don't know HOW it's possible that it took me nearly 5 months to reach my 1000th post, but exactly 1 month 17 days to hit my 2000th (this being it) :weird:. It's a clear sign of this forum taking over my life . But ANYWAY, yes, I'm a grammar/spelling Nazi. I find it absolutely mandatory to spell everything exactly the way it should be spelt, with the right grammar. I find it appalling when some people -- especially those who are brought up speaking English and have spoken it all their born days -- can't spell even the simplest words, and mix everything up . I've seen people write 'witch' when it was really supposed to be 'which' . I don't for the life of me see how one can be confused for the other . I saw someone on this forum spell 'dilemma' as 'delima', which made me laugh out loud, and was really quite mean of me. And the one thing that bugs me a lot is in the LV forum, people write 'Pochette Accessories', when, upon much closer inspection, it's really 'Pochette Accessoires'. I always assumed that people who go to eLuxury and vuitton.com as often as they do would eventually get it, but no, they keep making the same mistake over and over . And I have a feeling that when they see me spell it as 'Pochette Accessoires', they think I'm the one who's spelling it wrong. I come from a country where, like America, there are more than one race: mainly Malay (the natives), Chinese and Indian. But unlike America, everyone prefers to speak their native tongues, so English is shoved to the back burner and has become more of a 7th language. When they speak English it's directly translated from their own language , and the grammar is so bad that it's funny. The Chinese people, especially, love to make up their own ways of spelling things, like 'fren' for 'friend', 'wat' for 'what', 'wan' for 'want', 'haf' for 'have', 'dun' and 'don' for 'don't', and 'sumting' for 'something'. It makes me want to throw something at the computer screen when I talk on MSN to anybody from back home. What about you? Does it bug you when you see even the simplest spelling or grammar mistake, or do you let it slide? I know I sound awful, but I think it's just the way I was brought up.
