    Correcting grammar in an argument is just another way of saying, “you’re right and I’m just going to try to make you look stupid.”

    ^Actually, it isn’t. It’s just another way of saying “You can’t even express yourself in the language of your choice, how am I supposed to take any of your arguments seriously?”
    It constantly baffles me how illiterate and inarticulate native speakers often are.

    I agree with Anonymous, if you can’t handle your own native language that you’ve spoken your entire life then what use are you? Knowledge doesn’t matter if spoken in ignorance.

    @Maibeth: Truer words have never been spoken. (Or at least, not in a while.. on the internet..)

    Agreed! I’m a Native speaker in America, and I find it horrifying that most don’t know the difference between ‘your’ and ‘you’re’. Especially when I’m a writer.

      “I’m a Native speaker in America”
      1. Is “Native” a proper noun?
      2. What exactly are you trying to say here? Options, as it’s written, are that you either A, speak a language you call ‘native’, or B, you are a native who speaks, which is pretty ambiguous.

      “Especially when I’m a writer.”
      What is this meant to refer back to? as it’s written, it doesn’t really make sense.
      As it’s written, you seem to believe that people only confuse those in the moments when you are a writer.

      While I’m sure you’re trying to say “As a writer and native English speaker, I find it horrifying that many don’t even know the difference between ‘your’ and ‘you’re’.”, your poor grammar really betrays you. ;)

    And this is me telling you that English isn’t the official language of the USA because the US hasn’t declared an official language.

    Trying to sound smart on the internet is a major failure. See example above.
