Poor English on the Inernet
I know this is not related to age gaps, but I'm not a member of that many forums anymore and I feel the need to vent about this topic somewhere.
Is anyone else tired of going to forums and comment sections at the end of articles or YouTube videos, and trying to read text that is barely understandable?
It's particularly frustrating when I'm trying to research technical information related to work.
I'm not saying my English is perfect, but I at least make an effort to make my comments readable. There are a basic few rules that everyone should at least try to follow: 1) Capitalize the first letter of the first word of a sentence. 2) Capitalize names and the first person pronoun "I". 3) Separate thoughts into coherent sentences. 4) Try to use your spell checker. It's not rocket science.
It's sad to say that most Internet commentary left by the general public would probably fail if it were handed in as a 6th grade English paper.
Like Abraham Lincoln once said, "You can't believe everything you read on the Internet."
