This Is You.

Why does everyone think you dont need punctuation when you are typing on the internet Its not as if the computer knows where to pause for you or anything I mean do you have any idea how hard this is to read

and then there's that bit about proper capitalization its all gone by the wayside as if using capital letters is too 1990 or something all the emo kids would cry at you if you didnt write the super cool band name in an all lowercase sans serif font

speling further obfscates the isue when peepl dont know any diference btwen there their theyre thr and thier theyre really a big losers

grammer dont even got me strtd it like wen u get thos emales 4 male enhancement or watever nd it maks the u angree i cant evn do it ts ooooo hard it ofendz my sens of n e ting realy

I heard something on NPR the other day about the recent publishing of a bunch of grammar books and why it's happening. I think this is why. The internet has done a lot to destroy people's sense of good grammar and punctuation, so they people who care about this stuff feel the need to fight back.

The USA Today article gives an example of what the article would look like if written in text speak. It's practically illegible.

Also, the spell checker in Firefox 2.0 is a GODSEND.
