I'm tempted to name this thread after our most serious offender.
Repent, or else...

Judah Kanowitz might not be the only one with a dedicated thread.

Idk why that last post was deleted, but i agree with u-no-me 100%
And i know i may be nogaya as I am terrible with grammer...(or as rots5 would put it- I'm chasidish)
but there are def nicer ways to get your point across imo



Honestly, being Chassidish is no excuse to not exercise proper grammar. Maybe this is just me, but I don't see a difference between walking down the street with dirty clothing and not using proper grammar. It's simply one of those things that if you haven't picked it up naturally, you ought to make time to pick it up.

By all means, you can take on yourself to PM all of the offenders, and I'll consider taking down this thread.

But to not even use proper grammar, punctuation, and capitalization in the thread condemning those who do the same is just absurd, IMHO, chassidish or not.

So here we go:
1)moish
2)rots5

Please use caps for the first letter of a post.

lol
Today is definitly your lucky day.
big talker

if youre capitalizing, or adding apostrophes on ddf, youve got way too much time on your hands

imho, grammar on these boards is only necessary for your post to be readable (such as correct spelling and commas)

Doesn't take that much time to capitalize.
Maybe brush up your typing skills?

I use ellipses like all the time, it's like " vehameivin yovin"...

First of all: ellipsis

And No, ellipsis is not the way to go. Overusing it is simply a way to be lazy while giving you the false perception that others think you are smart, or have something more to say.

It wasn't an excuse, it was a joke for rots5.
And if the few periods missing in my above post is getting on your nerves, then you are taking this a little too far IMHO.

I'm simply saying that it's easy to cast those people who "bother" to type appropriately as having "too much time" if you're the type of person who doesn't bother to use proper grammar/punctuation/capitalization himself.

Count me in as the first of 10, respectfully, of course.

As a matter of fact, I do try, but I'm not AS concerned about it.

One cannot compare the relative ease of typing on a full keyboard to typing on a cell phone.
