Re: When and why do you use correct grammar/spelling online?
On forums, websites, emails and such I always try to type with proper grammar and spelling. I hate 'chat speak' and I agree it makes people look kinda dumb so I never use it. On IM programs, I tend to mimic whoever I'm speaking to in regards to being casual (no capitalisation, emoticons, limited punctuation) or formal (no emoticons, correct grammar/capitalisation). I don't know why, just a habit I guess! xD
