    The only grammer issue that really bothers me is run-ons. Like I've seen what would be a paragraph put into one long sentance. Now it's just harder to get a point across when it's like that, because in my head it's like I'm running out of breath wondering where the sentance will end and a new thought begins. So when I find posts like that I have to read them like 3 times just to find out the sentance. It's like:

    So I had this dog that I got from my mom and we named him Chip he was a cool dog and we played fetch a lot but then one day he got hit by a car I was sad and so was my family then one day after he died we went to a pet store and bought a gold fish he had bumps in his head and we thought he was cool when we took him home--

    OH THE INSANTIY!
    I gotta get that cotton ball off my butt.
    I <3 T3H MONK3H!!!

Anyways that's my opinion, if you can't read my stuff then don't read it. ^_^;

    Most of all the last thing i want to do in a forum called the Plush Room is act like i'm talking to my english teacher, thanks and have a nice day.

    Oh yeah, j00 f00z m3 5k1llz 0wnz02 y0u.
    your on crack.

    Bad grammer doesn't bother me much, it does annoy me sometimes when some people spell words like they sound instead of how it is suppose to be spelled, because it's different and it takes a second to sink into my head.

    Yep I dont have the best spelling or grammar but if I know your a grammar Nazi I make a point to spell check and call you on any mistake. No madder how small the mistake is. Or simpely if your a dick about spelling and grammar I'm gonna do everything to piss you off.

    It's not that bad usually, no one is perfect and usually no one keeps a dictonary next to them while they post. Don't be such a wuss. Just imagine what english teachers put up with. They actually have to read HANDWRITING and still figure out wtf some people are saying.
