    Default I don't understand people like Kirby who post with atrocious grammar/spelling

    I mean Kirby once said he's good at English in school so it can be inferred that he has a decent grasp of the language. Thus his terrible posts are probably the result of TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS. If this is the case then why doesn't he fucking proofread his message before he posts? I make plenty of errors while typing but I know how to use the backspace key, and sometimes I even edit posts to fix errors because I don't want to torment the people who are reading my posts. Do you just hate all of us, Kirby? Is that the reason?

    I suppose, like every idiosyncrasy exhibited by any person on the Internet, it all comes down to autism.

    That, or laziness.

    Though I personally find it harder to post in bad grammar and spelling than otherwise.

    You didn't see that there was an apostrophe missing in the very first word of your post?

    The worst part is when I don't see errors until like 10 minutes after I post something.

    I always try to edit my posts discreetly to rid it of errors.

    You see Rayne, for me "I'm" rolls off the tongue as any other word, I rarely ever wonder it's existence as a conjuction.

    Those in Ireland can't be much better if they don't teach you how to finish sentences.

    Rayne in English all I have to do is hand in my work on time, and you pass. Do class work and you get in the 80s. Get 100s on the easy shit tests and your in the 90s easily.

    Rayne I put exactly 8 hours of out of school work in english for the final report, and in class I would draw adventure time characters, I got a 96.

    kirby has to have some kind of legitimate brain THING(ie autism[ps its autism]) because he's obviously reasonably intelligent but makes the same ridiculous mistakes over and over again deliberately.

    If you're in a basic English clas sure, but I couldn't pass English unless I put time and effort into at least two or three essays a week, all tests were short answer or essay-based, and I had to actively participate in group work and presentations. AP English III and IV were the hardest courses I have ever taken..
