Grammar Nazi is not pleased.

One of the main things that the concritter groups do on FF is go after people gently prod those who need help in the grammar and spelling department.
I’ve made blog posts devoted to those who brand themselves a concritter yet fail to master the basics of grammar for their work before they go out bashing other works.

The same holds true in real life.  I’m surrounded by those who think your and you’re are the same word.

Their/There/They’re – Why not?

To/Too/Two: Again, they can be used interchangeably.

There’s a whole mess of people on Facebook who can’t spell their way out of a wet paper bag, but one thing I’d like to point out:

If you want me to shop at your store, learn proper grammar.

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas.

My grammar! My grammar! My kingdom for good grammar!

Nothing shows you’re an idiot more than calling someone an idiot or using insults when you don’t have the slightest idea how to properly contract words or construct a sentence.

Um....

Um….

.....

Rule of thumb:  If you’re going to call someone an idiot, make sure you know how to tell the difference between you’re and your.

Otherwise you’re the idiot.
