RE: Grammar
Spelling errors and typos don't bother me too much - except when I make them - I hate when my shit doesn't look like I at least tried. It's deliberate laziness on my part and I'll tolerate in others, what I will NOT tolerate from myself. I'm guilty of constantly editing this shit when I should have previewed. I alone commiserate.

This is an international site and I know things don't translate - I cut everyone slack in the attempt to communicate. I'm here to understand what and how others think and what others care about. I regard content and intent to be of greater import in interactive communication.

Blogs; they can be somewhat one sided and the writer must know a broad public. Again, I pay more attention to content and intent, but if there is some laziness in the writing... what am I to make of research used to arrive at content? If care was not taken to present the content, then what did the writer assume about the reader? I would think the writer of a blog must take greater care regarding communication, or will eventually have no one to blog for.

I don't have many peeves about grammar, per se ... especially when, for me, just putting words in a particular order is ninety four percent of the battle.

You have no idea how long it's taken me to write this, and make it at the very least, coherent. Dodgy Shit!

You can blame misspellings and lack of punctuation on your smartphone or typos, but you cannot blame homonym mistakes on it. You just flat out got it wrong.
Nah, man. "Your stupid" means it is yours; you have cornered the market on stupid. As in, your stupid. Stupid.
