Typo's happen all the time, so what are you going to do about those? Say; "Hey, fix your post. Why? Because I have a badge, so when I say you're wrong, you're wrong."

That's bogus. I'd be interested to see just how badly this idea would fail when you try to go around enforcing good grammer.

BTW, the badge has a grammer error on it.
What's the mistake? Maybe I'm just slow and not catching anything of importance right now, but I see no real mistakes.

I agree, I get tired of people using all their text talk too. How much time is it going to take to type out an extra couple of letters? I'm not saying you have to be perfect but here like this:

You does not equal u.
Why does not equal y.
Are does not equal r.
Loser does not equal luzr, or any of those other "spellings". What loser really means "I suck Maikeru and you win!"
I'm fine with one = 1, but be careful when using it in your fanfics.
By the way, by the way does not equal btw.
Brb is okay, lol is okay. However, *[insert name here] is laughing out loud* is better.
Put space in between your words no one wants to read "Iamthesuperelitest"
Capitilize the first letter of the sentence.
Use a period if your sentence gets too long, commas are good too, just don't overuse them.

Let me demonstrate:

"omg! yru sch a n00b, btw i'm not a luzr" Correcting the statement.

"Oh my gosh! Why are you such a newbie? By the way, I don't suck Maikeru and you don't win"

And to translate that into complete English would be.

"Oh my gosh! Why are you so unintelligent? By the way, I'm sorry I do suck Maikeru and you win."

I use normal words when typing, I don't really think about using '1337 533|<' because I want people to understand me. When I read some of the posts on here, I sometimes can't read it but I'm not going to notify them that they spelled something wrong. Let alone recruiting a badge and acting like a Grammar Nazi.
No, thanks

I found this relatively funny. I haven't even looked at this post since like the 1st or 2nd day I made it. I was just bored so sorry for all those people that thought I was gonna try to enforce this. If you had read all the posts in between my very first one on this thread and this one, then maybe you could see how I kinda made this as a joke. I use chat speak very commonly and I don't care about other people's spelling. As long as they get their point across, who am I to judge? When I said the idea of the "Grammar Police" still interests me, I was talking about whether or not someone would try and enforce something like that. Anyway, if anyone thought that I was majorly serious with this thread, once again, sorry to disappoint. Boredom does strange things to people........and I'm already strange enough as is. xD

Haha, I wasn't going to join up and start giving people infractions for bad grammar. I was just saying the obsessive use of bad grammar really annoys. By the way, I don't want to see some "text talk to English" translator as I do not care to now what they are.

Nothing more, nothing less.

1.) I don't have infraction powers anyway.
2.) Bad grammar can be annoying, but get over it. (No offense intended)
3.) I think they actually have one of those converters somewhere.

I think that's kind of dumb, but at the same time with the overwhelimg amount of text talk I can see where it might be necessary. Don't worry it does annoy me, but as long as I understand the message I won't say anything.

Could everyone please stop posting in this thread? Go back and read ALL the posts starting from page 1 and keep going until you get to the end of this page. It would be so much easier if people used their ability to read. If I offended you in some way, I'm sorry.
