The word "definitely" does not have an "a" in it. Seriously, it just fucking doesn't.

I'm giving everyone a 24 hour period to confirm this amazing fact for themselves. After that, if you refuse to get it the fuck right, I will despise you.

Edit: Also, pay careful attention to how I spelled "despise".

I approve of/endorse this thread.

This is a great opportunity to vent some other spelling frustrations, but they're escaping me at the moment.

I forgive that one. Because a lot of natives make that mistake.

Who the hell is using an "a"? What's going on?

I knew I could rely on you. I even thought as much while making this thread.


I forgive that one. Because a lot of natives make that mistake.

That's exactly why it must not be forgiven.


Who the hell is using an "a"? What's going on?

You must be joking, or just don't pay the same attention to spelling as I do.

Aaaah yes.

I'd also like to point out, ridiculous is spelled like this: ridiculous. There's no e.

I haven't been here very much lately, so I haven't been reading much. If its igniton (thats doing this), then what the hell do you expect?



I'd also like to point out, ridiculous is spelled like this: ridiculous. There's no e.
That word should never be used anyway, so using it is almost as bad as misspelling it.

I've been guilty of spelling it "definately", I apologise.

Paint_It_Black
03-22-2006, 10:04 AM
Ruroken, I can ignore it from complete idiots. My real problem is with people who should know better.

Edit: Thank you Andy. I will now cross you off the list. But consider yourself on probation.

I used to do it all the time, and probably still do even now that I know how it should be spelt. However, I refuse to take any advice on the English language from a britfag. Have a foreigner tell me how to spell it and I'll consider putting more care into it.

Sunny

oh man. yes. *hate*

it's ESPECIALLY annoying when native English speakers do it. they had their entire lives to learn their language. get your shit right.

another pet peeve... it's "masturbation" not "masterbation". gurrrgug.

Yesss! And grammer is annoying too.

"I know my grammer is bad" YES! AND SO IS YOUR SPELLING!

Sin Studly

An endorsement is no good, he needs make the point as if he came up with it without it being first made by a brit. As it is, I'm considering refusing to get it right no matter what, since a brit told me to start spelling it right.

ruroken
03-22-2006, 10:17 AM
Hahahaha masterbation.
I've never seen anyone do that, but I'm sure that it would annoy me too. but if it's not someone that just got into it or someone that hasn't gotten to that point yet, then it isn't annoying.

It's not like you have to do something to know how to spell it.

Yeah, you definitely pay no attention to spelling then.

Yes, sometimes I do so stupid mistakes! I wish my English teacher never see them! But I'm interesting only in one thing you don't use tenses, only the most usefull!

Tanya, you are exempt from any scorn. You speak English the way it should be spoken.

Rocky-girl
03-22-2006, 10:28 AM
Thank you, but my English is far from ideal. I think that Simona does it better than me, but I can't speak better those people for whom this language is native.

Sin Studly
03-22-2006, 10:29 AM
Tanichka, you speak English better than... say, Maria, and she's obviously been learning it a lot longer than you, and reading a lot more.

Sin Studly

Actually, my atrocious spelling is weird. Admittedly, I'm an uneducated fuck who never got past year 10 of high school, but I'm still a writer. An excellent fucking writer, if I do say so myself, with flawless turn of phrase and a sublime sense of flow, and intend to start writing professionally when I can be bothered. Yet I keep throwing in the letter a seemingly wherever it doesn't belong.

Oh well, fuck it, I'll get proofreaders for that kinda shit.

I definitaley never had a problem with an "a" in it. (Just kidding, guys)

But I think I used to put an "e" after the "f".

I'm not even going to start griping about how spelling errors get me, or I'll be here all night.

Mota Boy

I make that mistake fairly often. There are certain words I'll never be able to spell correctly without consulting a dictionary. I find it amusing that I won my district spelling bee in middle school but will consistently misspell certain common words.

I like to think that my mistakes are on par with Einstein's inability to do basic math.

oh god, I hate that! and when people say "your" when they mean "you're" and "theyre" when they mean "their".

I think I might be guilty of this one at least occasionally...I apologize and will remove one of my own fingers as punishment for this.

Sinister
03-22-2006, 05:06 PM
Pretty much everything people use to save time and/or keystrokes annoys me, mainly because this is a forum, not a chatroom. I know I used to write using shortcuts all the time, but for some reason I don't do it anymore, which is a good thing.

And they didn't teach it in your previous school either?

Surely they should tell you what you do wrong in highschool though.

well it makes sense. tizz posts 16 times per day while i only have 6 - 8. she clearly spends/wastes more time on the BBS/internet. therefore she is a nerd in my opinion. you can have your opinion about me too. which i know are all negative.

Whoa... Wait... Wait... Definitely doesn't have an 'A' in it? I coulda sworn it did... I mean, so many people do it, I thought that's how it was spelled. Hm, the more you know I guess...

Sorry if I came off sounding like an ass... It does make me sad when people just slap words together and call them a sentence and it also makes me sad when people bastardize words left and right on the internet in an attempt to speed up their chat. This is a forum, not a chatroom... You have the time to sit down and actually make an pseudo-intelligent post that is readable. Mistakes are okay and certain circumstantial things may affect the outcome of post in a forum (such as, in an English speaking forum that has many members who speak English as a 2nd/3rd/etc. language have some leeway.)

*Sighs* Sorry, I've ranted on long enough and made myself both look like an ass and an idiot... I just have so much pent up hostility towards internet culture today *shakes fist* So much fury...

Edit: And no pointing out my errors, I'm fully aware of them... I think.

Look equally wrong.
