I'm supposed to do it for the site because they want proper grammar and I will at times to help someone out but that's the only reason. I'm sorry if they get annoyed but it's part of my job. If they get upset, I'm sorry as I'm only trying to help is all.
Are you one of those people who loves to correct people's grammar? Does it annoy people when you do it or do they appreciate it? How do you try to tone it back when people get annoyed?
To do so would be like shooting myself in the foot.
I have pretty reasonable grammar and spelling but when I get on the Internet my fingers take on a life of their own and I'm often appalled at some of the errors that find their way into my posts. Sure, sloppy writing can be irritating and is most certainly bad communication, but I'm not going to be the one to point it out...
Unless, of course it's so comical that there's a laugh to be had by underlining it. >:-)
I don't "love" to correct a person's grammar, but correct grammar improves communication---and I am pleased when I don't have to interpret a question or answer to determine what a person is trying to ask or say.
If a question about grammar usage is posted, I will usually answer it if I see it.
If I do answer it, I usually give either a reference or an explanation.
I seldom initiate an unsolicited "correction."
No, unless I'm helping someone with an impotent letter. I make mistakes, not intentionally but sometimes I just get tried, having stared at a computer screen all day. Hence, I have a tendency to bypass udders.
No. People don't like to be corrected. It hurts their feelings and it's just not that important
Also I don't want anyone correcting my grammar.
