aibu in thinking as soon as spelling/grammar is picked on the debate argument has been lost?

YABU because your sentence didn't start with a capital letter. grin

(YANBU)

Not necessarily

The Grammer Police thread was hilaire

BuzzardBird Sat 10-Jan-15 19:44:40

Grammer ? grin

ghostspirit Sat 10-Jan-15 19:47:08

yes probably grammer grin

I do not say anything if a person is in distress in any way, eg. looking for advice to leave an abusive situation.
Other than that, depends on the topic, although I do give up trying to decipher some threads!

I hate it when posters correct grammar or spelling.

It's an immediate 'twat' indicator for me.

(I knows youse all been ironical).

Mine isn't that great. but it is absolutely appalling if I'm making tea /dealing with DCs etc plus keyboard on my phone disappearing mid sentence. So I really can't judge anybody else blush

If the OP is clearly a troll then it's game on.

Otherwise it's a bit cunty.

Koalafications Sat 10-Jan-15 20:06:54

Sorry, yes. If they are being goady then it's absolutely fine.

ghostspirit Sat 10-Jan-15 20:10:50

ItsAllKickingOffPru Sat 10-Jan-15 20:20:35

I'm sorry, I can't read your OP. Could someone put it into readable paragraphs for me?

Perfectlypurple Sat 10-Jan-15 20:25:08

I have only once mentioned spelling and grammar on here, and that was when someone did an aibu about other peoples spelling. I think it was along the lines of 'aibu to think they should of checked their spelling'. I wasn't the only one that brought up it should be have instead of of.

Dawndonnaagain Sat 10-Jan-15 20:27:36

Ahh, I'm a twat then. I really don't mind, I only do it to someone I think it being twatty, usually on a benefits thread. But of course, that's my opinion.

ghostspirit Sat 10-Jan-15 20:28:05

haha have to be very careful with them sorts of threads. i think they are funny smile

LoisWilkerson15 Sat 10-Jan-15 20:36:05

Yanbu. I hate it when some poor op gets flamed for poor spelling or grammar. Its nasty.

Perfectlypurple Sat 10-Jan-15 20:39:13

My spelling and grammar is excellent in real life, on here not so much. If I have made a typo I can't be arsed sometimes to go back and change it. If it is still legible I let it go.

frantically checking post for typos

Anyone who comments on spelling and grammar is a Thundercunt.

ghostspirit Sat 10-Jan-15 20:43:12

i dont even check. i would be there all day

IgnoreMeEveryOtherReindeerDoes Sat 10-Jan-15 20:47:49

Yes I just think poster is a twat when they just come on thread to correct spellings.
