Is it just me or has the amount of typos skyrocketed the last 3-4 months? I'm not a freaquent poster, but I've been reading threads and blogs for a year now, and it seems the language is really bad at the moment. It seems like the new guys that come here either doesn't know english, or doesn't care. Sure, if your primerary language, like mine, is not english I totally get that, but that doesn't excuse you from atleast trying. Only today I have read four post that i litterary could not understand.

Now, I know the moderators have banned people for repetedly starting the same thread, but how about banning people that doesn't seem to give a shit how they write?

PS: Hope my english isn't that bad:P

Banning people for their grammar? You're pulling my pilsner right?

This isn't school mate. I appreciate that some users make spelling errors, but is it really that bad? A lot of people post from iPhones (or similar) on the go, and may not have a spell checker on it. You shouldn't get annoyed by users' mistakes. You should sympathise that they may not be as well educated as you.

Expect a few "grammar nazi" comments mate.

It happens on a lot of forums. You just have to put up with it and forget the inner grammar-nazi you have.

Also the bolded will never happen, should never happen and shouldn't ever be considered. Main reason being this is the internet. People can write however they want. Hell i'm up and down. sometimes ill just not giver f00k on how i'm writing or sometimes I will. :)

Yes, I realised while I was typing that banning people for errors are stupid, but come on, you must have noticed how bad it has gotten. An interesting thread is ruined if you can't understand the responses

Aye i'll admit in certain threads you get Marky McFuckgrammarson and they'll dribble their stuff.

I only tend to care about regulars posters say though, a lot of EWN regulars are pretty smart so I can get a decent discussion out of that part of a thread.

Guess you are right about that. I'll do the same and ignore thing I don't understand.

Well, that depends if I consider Grammar Nazi as an insult, and seeing as i don't post much, that really doesn't bother me.
