    It must be hard to hunt and peck for all the right words. 🙂

    Bad grammar drives me crazy. But what drives me even more insane is when affluent bloggers defend the use of bad grammar, saying it is the message that really counts. What??

    Would you go to a mechanic who didn’t pay attention to how tight he got the bolts back on? Or if he got ALL the nuts on?

    How many sponges is a doctor allowed to leave in your body after an operation?

    How many inoperable traffic lights are acceptable for every mile of roadway?

    Writing is a craft like any other. There are standards of performance like anything else. To willfully ignore them, to not strive to learn the craft and claim to use the written word as a tool in your toolbox is insulting to writers everywhere.

    Learn proper grammar. It’s ok to flub it up, but it is never ok to not learn or to defend the misuse of language as trivial.

    I think speakers are sometimes excused with some fillers and grammar errors but for writers? I don’t think so.

    Grrrr, it’s a pet hate of mine too. A friend of mine struggles with the ‘there and their’ problem and also when to use ‘to’ and when to use ‘too’ and was even pulled up about it where she works. Even worse though is using ‘no’ for ‘know’! :/

    Yes, it’s my profession to notice poor grammar but it has always bugged me. “Where’s me book” is one of the most grating statements I hear!

    Rufus, I agree that we’re human and make mistakes (or haven’t been taught the rules) but people calling themselves writers defending poor spelling and grammar make me see red, too.

    When writing I guess it is essential to think as much as 10 times of what to write because many are really particular with grammar and will surely make some negative criticisms if grammar lapses are detected.

    Jess 08/01/2008 at 11:28 am I know it may sound a little too dummy but here’s my qsuteion: i’ve downloaded your theme and it comes up only with the images and CSSs. As far as i know, there has to be the .php files too so they can work. I tried using the default .php files but couldn’t make it.Would you e-mail me with a little help? By the way, great jobs
