What happened to our language?
 
Wouldn't most people check for spelling or grammar - especially in the title line - BEFORE they hit the "Submit" button? WTH?

OK What did I screw up this time?

I commend you on the job you do here. It does not go unnoticed!

I'm right there with you lone. I hate what texting has done to our language. Couldn't see the pics but I still hate it.

I think "Joe" is spelled "Joe" unless you're a girl.

Well thanks, Dave, I appreciate that.

As long as I can understand what someone is trying to say it's not going to bother me. It's a web forum not an English class. And we all got to where we are from different places. I know more than one gunsmith anyone here would dang near cut a nut off to get work done from but they don't read or write all that well. I also know more than one educator that a high school dropout like me (later earned a GED then went to college) spent a lot of time correcting their use of vocabulary.

It's all good...And it really don't matter... to me anyway :)

There is a reason for the edit feature. Sometimes people get thinking faster than they can type.

And if it weren't for the misspellings that happen, we mods would have to do other things with our time, like issue time outs to annoying grammar Nazis who get reported for nitpicking. :p

Far from the first to take this subject up, right NGIB and Skull? It gets resurrected every once in a while. Anyone else would get a pass with this subject but, since it's me, I get jumped on.

It's a commentary on where our culture has gone. Being able to put a decent sentence together is something the youngsters should see as important. It's still pertinent in the workplace. Many employers feel they get a glimpse into a person by the way they use the language. As much as anyone wants to deny that, it's still true.

It's just another example of the way the world is changing....and not always for the good.
