I have noticed a trend taking place for the last few years. it isn't so bad here, but it happens on a LOT of forums and beyond. When you share a thought on the forum, you actually have an unlimited amount of space to organize your thoughts and type them out so that everyone can read them and make sense of them. Bad spelling and poor grammar don't really bother me so much (Depending on exactly how bad it is, and as I get older, I am starting to misspell words sometimes too...), but 2 things I really can't stand is a post full of SMS text, or a half page of one long run-on sentence. It is not limited to forums either. My wife was the supervisor where she worked and she would bring home resumes that people had submitted. There was SMS texting language on MOST of them. STRAIGHT to the TRASH! Some of them were on lined notebook paper and done in pencil. Nope! Straight to the TRASH! One lady wrote poetry on the back. NOPE! STRAIGHT to the TRASH! I wouldn't hire someone to pick up cigarette butts out of my parking lot if they did any of that on their job application! "I was drv 2 th store 2day an i ran ovr a dog" OR "i was drive to the stor today an i run over a dog so then i herd a funny noise commin from out of the radiator i pulled into a parking lot and open the hood and saw anti freeze on the grownd comming from out of the hose i called my dad he said that i need to go to the auto parts store i went to the auto parts store and the guy ask me what kind of hose it is i tell him that it was for my truck he ask what kind of truck i told him a blue truck he said we dont have that part and then i have to walk back to my truck it was like 5 miles away it was cold i got back to the truck and the police was asking me if it was my truck i said yeah and he told me that i have to move it or they are going to call a tow truck i moved it and there was no more anti freeze i called my dad again he told me to go back to school" What?! I see either of those in a post and I IMMEDIATELY click the back button. I won't even ATTEMPT to decipher that mess! Those are my BIG pet peeves. What about you?
