Why wouldn't you write to your best abilities online? Sure, avatars and cute little cliches in your signature are cool, but it's what you post that leaves the biggest mark man, and in any case, grammatical ineptitude will always make you look like a jackass.

I try to use correct grammar and spelling because I don't want to look stupid. >_< Sometimes if I get lazy, I'll just not put apostrophes. That's my bad online grammar. I'm just really silly and take proper spelling and grammar to a new level. @___e;

Default Re: When and why do you use correct grammar/spelling online?

I use somewhat correct grammar online because, for one thing, I'm a writer (to an extent) and writers are kind of expected to have ok-grammar and not be like 'o luk u mad e a funnee' rather like, if anything 'lol' or 'Hah' or something like that, if someone made a joke for instance.

The one thing I dont normally do is, as I just showed, I dont put the apostrophe in dont, cant, etc. I dont do it normally, at least, because Im not used to doing it. I do it while Im writing, however, and sometimes swich from not doing it to doing it in the middle of a sentence.

i type "normally" i just don't have a use for caps. it's a forum, it's laid back not formal.
same with twitter. in texts i write well because usually i text my mum and my phone has autocorrect.

i misspell a lot but i don't fix it

If I'm posting on a forum or on Facebook or something similar, I'll try to make it look neat. And I use capitalization and punctuation when I text.

but if i'm in an instant messenger or chatting on a game i might forgo caps and punctuation for the speed

I use it because I enjoy the way it looks. It's clean and easy to understand (unless I write a run-on sentence,creating an excess amount of commas, which I do often). Though I'm not a "verb-noun agreement" type of Grammar Nazi, I do correct punctuation and things in the like. I'm also a pretty shiet speller, which I why I hardly Skype with people (my Skype doesn't have spellchecker). P;

I only use incorrect grammar when it'll add to the tone/atmosphere/humor of what I'm trying to say, or if I'm trying to be cute. Like, sometimes when I'm talking to my boyfriend, I'll say,"I on compuuder, sowwy I responding slow. :c" or something.

Ironic how I hate it when people use the incorrect form of their/there/they're, but I love Dolan.
