What grinds my gears #5

So, you know what really grinds my gears?
How so many people constantly make spelling mistakes. I mean, I'm not perfect. I make plenty of mistakes when it comes to spelling. But English is my third language and I think I can proudly say I can type it better then about 50% of most native speakers.
Now I'm not a spelling Nazi, though I will point out someone's mistakes if they are too obvious to miss. Sometimes it's just so bad. People who don't bother to learn their own language decently should all ****ing choke while eating a bowl of alphabet soup.
It's not just spelling though. People feel the need to shorten words so much. Saying things like "m8" and "wut" instead of what. IT'S ONE FUCKING LETTER PEOPLE, TYPE IT YOU LAZY FUCKS. It just pisses me off, why would you butcher such a strong language. It's one of the languages spoken all over the world and yet a lot of the native speakers are losing grip and forget most words exist cause they use a shorter more convenient word.
Another thing I find hilarious, is when people tell someone their spelling is **** when a grammatical error has been made. Those two things are quite different, fuckheads and you should learn what the difference is between the two before you condemn someone. Same goes for when a type is made instead of a spelling mistake. It's kind of obvious its a typo if the letters are switched, or an extra letter has been added just because that letter is RIGHT next to the one you needed.
What have we learned from all of this? Zero spellchecks his blogpost about spelling before posting it !
