Somebody probably bought a copy of The IBM Style Guide.

TFA contained words in a certain format but WTF did all that mean? Was there a point that I missed?

Irregardless, it's a mute point. These sorts of mistakes run the gambit from compleat missentnces up to simple misspelings but I could care less about them.

Pista: "user's" ??


I'm hoping that was the joke because I really lolled hard.

For all intensive purposes, you should of added a few commas to be shore.

Apparently, younger internet users are also more likely to react to poor punctuation before reading the entire sentence.

They might be more likely to judge but not more likely to be correct.

I'm not surprised by this. My daughter is 16 and this is the case for her.

The one that makes me cringe is "with regards to" rather than "in regard to." As in "With regards to the accused serial killer..."
 
2012-12-09 10:16:59 AM  
Of course the younger ones are more likely to judge spelling and grammer. They have not yet experienced years of berating and name-calling resulting from caring about sentence structure, spelling, and at least a modicum of intelligence.

Give them a few years and they'll be forced to degrade to our low level of idiocy.

Join us.

We all float down here.
 
2012-12-09 10:18:20 AM  
...and no, I didn't realize I misspelled grammar. That's how far I've degenerated over my many years.

I thought young people would never learn to spell thanks to text messages and Twitter.

Make up your mind, media.
