Then they should look at someone pointing out their grammatical errors as a learning experience and take responsibility for their errors, rather than blame others for their own inadequacies.
mate, u straight up failed to comprehend that no one asked u to correct their copy. u might want to work on ur own communication skills before going in studs up on someone else.
You may not need grammar to figure out stuff like this, but you sure as hell need it to communicate effectively and for your comments and opinions to be taken seriously.
who cares. a clown wearing a bowtie is still a clown.
on that note, uve spelt ur username wrong. its supposed to be 'circus'.
Why do people always ask this silly question, "who cares?". Obviously, I care, otherwise I wouldn't have posted what I did. I place a great deal of importance on proper use of the language. If you sent me a cover letter for a job with poor spelling and grammar, I'd toss both the cover letter and the resume straight in the trash basket. And I stand by the comment that proper spelling and grammar are important if you want your opinions to be taken seriously.
And lastly, no my username isn't spelled incorrectly. "crucis" a name used in astronomy for some star clusters and star names. Furthermore, it was a name I used in some sci-fi related material, as well as used by friends of mine who used the name in a fictional race in a sci-fi series about 15-20 years ago, and still shows up once in a while when another book in the series is written. It's a name that has some personal history with me, and I've used it (or some derivation thereof) on forums for the past 20 or so years.
This said by someone who in these small two paragraphs:
- inappropriately did ["who cares?".] when it should have been ["who cares?"] (no full stop after), and many style guides would have probably suggested a colon preceding that quote (e.g. "Why do people always ask this silly question: "who cares?")
- random extra spaces
- missed commas everywhere, and excessive commas elsewhere
- missed capitalizations
- missed hyphenizations ("sci-fi-related" not "sci-fi related")
- starts sentences with conjunctions
- fails to properly use accented e's in "résumé"
Get over yourself. forums where people sh*tpost about games they like or dislike are not job applications (and frankly even that hypothetical is moot given that I work in an industry where recruiters and HR folk would happily look over typos and grammar errors in a job application if you can code worth a damn, so your "high standard" would likely get you axed pretty quickly).
