My cousin loves to post things on her facebook like omg!!!! this happened today it was so exciting lol person i had a good time :) :) :) She commented in such a manner that she had done well on a midterm today, and I commented that I couldn't wait for her grammar midterm (no worries, she knew I was joking, we jab at eachother a lot), but she argued that, on facebook, she doesn't need to worry about her English. Confession: I think less highly of people who write online in like this!!!! because it shows they didn't really think too hard and like maybe they dont use punctuation cause they dont know how??? Whereas I don't immediately admire, but I'm less likely to cringe at people who write online in a manner that shows they can use the English Language capably, and are conscious about how their words are read. Correct spelling and grammar is also just good to make into a habit, and that's done by using it daily (i.e.; on facebook, through texts...), and besides, with dictionaries and spell checkers available EVERYWHERE, there's really no excuse if you ask me. SO! IS it ok to ignore spelling and grammar outside of formal writing? Does anyone else subconsciously judge those they see abusing the language? Should we?
