Capitalization And Punctuation

Are they, like, uncool or something now? o_O Because their absence is becoming more and more prevalent among members... especially when it comes to periods.

Don't think so. I may accidentally forget to capitalize something as I type so fast, and I do leave off stuff for emotes at times, but it's not uncool or anything.

 

But I do see what you mean. =P

lulz, I can tell who this is targeted at

 

some people prefer to type a bit more casually and less-formal when talking to friends.

I'm a little OCD about having periods at the end of my sentences. But when I end a sentence with an emoticon my mind goes haywire as I try to figure out where the period belongs. :P (or is it: where the period belongs :P. )

usually the only things I leave out are capitalization at the beginning of a sentence (unless it's a proper noun or I, or if I'm posting something long and serious) or the occasional period at the end of a sentence.

most of what i see is people not using capital letters in their posts like this.

It bugs me after a while. Even if the post is well-written, it still makes it somewhat more difficult to read.

Can't really say I've seen less periods. =\

I do the opposite. Sometimes I add too many capitals.

But the absence of proper grammar is disturbing. People should read more. Books are excellent examples. (Plus, text-speak gets REALLY annoying as well.)

people need to use proper grammar more grammar needs some appreciation guys come on ;__;

 

Aside from that [horrid] example, I've gotten really used to typing quickly while using correct grammar and capitalization, and I don't find it difficult at all. I barely even think about it.

If people just tried it out, the world would be a better place for the English language. :)

Periods are actually virus-carrying ticks that are generated when you type them

 

This virus makes people post biased opinions on the internet

 

DO NOT SPREAD THE EPIDEMIC

 

(This post is not targeted any anyone in particular, btw. : p)

I'm usually lax about grammar in blogs because as a whole they're a lot more informal

but in posts I definitely make sure my grammar is great

I usually do this in IM conversations only, since that can get pretty crazy and rapid, but not for posting on the internet. >>

When I use emoticons at the end of sentences, I don't use a full stop, or period as Americans know them as (And I used to think that they were commas >.< (,)).

:kaukau:BZP is unusually good about grammar. I don't have as much of a problem with those small errors though as I do with weird symbols like o_O.
