Why do people have such a big problem with grammar nazis?
#66 to #2 - meinneger (09/15/2013) [-]
the very nature of the english language is such that trying to prescribe people to a way of speaking is not only irrelevant but powerless and closed-minded

Honestly, I dislike the fact that a majority of them do not know much about correct syntax and structure. They just like to point out the differences in "your" and "you're". Besides grammar is pretty pointless, outside of formal writing. Hell, Francis Bacon was a worse speller than me.

The only problem I have with grammar nazis are those that will deliberately avoid any point you make in an argument and correct your grammatical mistakes as their "counterargument".

Otherwise, I have no problem with it.

It's mostly the ones with no sense of timing and you could be mourning someone's death and all they'll say is *you're

As a sometime Grammar Nationalist myself, I can't understand it. I'm an English major, and respect being corrected, because it means I'm learning. Everyone ********* on the awful grammar of Facebook and Twitter and random texting, but if more people acted like Grammar Nazis, it wouldn't be as much of a problem.

For me, the worst problem is that the people I correct, doesn't seem to care that they misspeak or pronounce anything wrong. And that is a crime to the language, of every nation. It destroys it, modifies it, and frankly, makes it sound more retarded. In Denmark, when people want to say the word "kilometer", they sometimes say "kilomet", because they in some retarded way, think that because of the "-er" at the end, it signifies plurality. When I correct them, and they say I'm wrong, I say "Well, are you 1 met and XX centimeters tall?"

It's a disgrace.

reads first sentence.
can't tell if troll or just stupid

If you read on a little, you'll see he's from Denmark, meaning English isn't his first language. So neither troll nor stupid, just foreign.

If I may be so bold, what is wrong with the first sentence?
User avatar #51 to #50 - cumbersome (09/15/2013) [-]
Jeg er også Dansker. Dit Engelsk er meget fint, den eneste fejl jeg sådan lige kan finde er at "doesn't" skal være "don't". Det er bare wetnoodle der er en røv.

I sådan en grad at jeg nok vil hævde at du faktisk skriver bedre end mange Amerikanere mht. stavning og grammatik.

Haha ja i nogle tilfælde. Men der er nu ligeså mange der er dygtige til at skrive, hvis man skal være retfærdig.

Ja, ikke noget at være ked af

Because they get heavily butthurt when they get corrected.
