Taking a lead from Finnbears thread titled little niggle word usage.
Does any one else find those posts that use text style abbreviations and formatting irritating? I know I most certainly do, and I am sure I am not alone. I tend to view their usage in a forum post as a sign of idleness, and intellectual laziness. I have found that regardless of what the poster might have to say, I simply skip over the post and ignore it. Does anyone else do that?
The English language in its written form has certain long standing, and well established means of sentence construction, punctuation and formatting.
Sentence's always start with a capital letter and end in either a full stop, question mark or exclamation mark. Sentences are punctuated by the use of comma's, semicolons,and colons. Those sentences are used to construct paragraphs. Paragraphs are separated by single or double line gaps if using type etc. I'm sure you all get where we're heading.
I know some people that find the use of smilies and other em-icons irritating.
What aspect of other peoples posts do you find annoying? Apart from their murdering of the english language.
