@#9, or maybe it's "later" instead of "alter." @OP, I would hate it if that happened to me. :( FYL.

Ydi for speeding. Woman can't even drive the speed limit correctly, don't push it! You shouldn't even have cars in the kitchen

I mea like really? these comments and the fml are not letters to the president so why the fuck does grammar matter this much? holy shit

no it's not gonna improve it. it only makes whoever ur tryin to school annoyed. I'm just not seeing a whole lotta "oh thank u so much for correcting my errors, good thing u were here to correct me and set my shit strait"

MissErika, as long as there are people who are making mistakes, there are going to be people correcting them. Ignorance, Pendatik, FFML_314 and all the other grammar Nazis aren't going to stop for you or anybody else who is "annoyed" by their comments. You can say that people don't improve from people correcting other's grammar and/or spelling on FML, but they do. Believe it or not, my friend, Laura, learned the difference between your/you're on FML.

85. you're (sorry nazi's your) comment reminds me of many time I haves received shut on fml for stupid grammatical errors like missing an apostrophe or something. Very true comment :)

Just because you are out of school is no reason not to continue learning. Life is a continual learning experience. The intelligent people are the ones who take what life gives them and use it for good. If that means learning grammar on FML, then so be it.

Hey now buddy. All I did was politely point out that it's not as easy as you might think. No need to get hostile.

So many people are overlooking a key point in this Grammar Nazi thing. The argument started due to mistakes in the FML, not a comment. Obviously the corrections did in fact make a difference, because Vanni fixed it soon thereafter.   Using proper grammar is important in two places on this site: in the FMLs, and in any comment in which the user wants or expects to be taken seriously. In the former, I know grammar is important to the site staff. Since not all of them are native English speakers

105 she never said she was wishing death she simply stated that they will die someday, everyone will so why insult her?

As I was reading this thread, my eye began to twitch. I can't /stand/ people that say grammar is not important, because it is. Whether you choose to accept it or not is your own choice. I do know that people do use what we say and they try their best to correct it. As much as they put up a fight at first, more times than not, I won't see them make the same mistake again, because people don't like being called out on a mistake. It's human nature. I would rather see someone genuinely not kno

Haha, I saw those too. Dont forget the word "of". It has become even clearer to see now that I know what to look for. And TIJD should know I'm smiling ear to ear after reading her code words.(:

Anna, one near the top, "can't stand people who* say", and one toward the middle, "what I say to* heart". Also, thanks for making me look short-winded this time. ;)

Heh, Q, I definitely thought of you while writing them! :D I can't remember using "ITRW" previously, but I trust you since it sounds like me. And I like it! BTW, did you look up RPS's "YMMV" yet? ;)

Reply

No I have not yet. Will you- pretty please with sugar on top- save me the trouble of urban dictionaring it? (:

LOL! I feel much better after writing that. Like I'm somehow appreciated. Also, even Grammar Nazis make mistakes. It's OK to be corrected. Take it in strides. I know they didn't correct me to feel better about themselves. Well Eli probably did, but Jane is just a helpful person! :P

Reply

Ha! OK, just this once, since I'm so helpful and all. ;) It's "Your mileage may vary", a takeoff of those car commerials. It's used to indicate "I don't guarantee the results I've implied if you follow this advice." Thanks, Anna. I try to be.

My comments too. Select and copy saves headaches. Owwww Jane. I was expecting something dirty since it's coming from RPS.(:

Fail. first you say it isn't an fml. Then you say except for the ticket. Other than the inconvenience the ticket is the main part of the fml. Just saying.

Reply

The ticket is the part that doesn't qualify. Your car not starting isn't generally something you have control over. If you pay attention to what you're doing, you can always avoid a speeding ticket. You can't complain about how fucked your life is if you did something illegal and got caught doing it.

It all qualifies, sallen, because it all got published as an FML. Regardless of whether it merits a YDI or a YLS, it's still an FML. If "totally unavoidable" was a qualification for publication on the site, the voting feature wouldn't exist, and a good percentage of these stories wouldn't have been accepted.
