I'm a bit of a grammar freak when it comes to editing papers or articles, but there are times when I forget a few grammar rules.

Personally, I try to make sure mine is correct. I tend to slip up, though. My biggest flaw is remembering when it's supposed to be who and when it's whom. D:

As for other people, if it's in general posts on the Internet, I really don't care. Not enough to correct them, anyway. I might cringe a little on the inside, but I'm not going to correct them. In a more formal setting, like writing or articles or office settings, I hate seeing them. But I'm still not correcting them. It's not my place.
If you're looking for me,
I'm hiding on Reddit or Twitter.

    I'm always critical about people's grammar and mine.

    English, being my second language, means that I am by no means immune to the odd spelling or grammatical mistake, however people who seem to put little to no effort into their typing really grinds on me. I think this is because I feel that people who are natively English speakers should have no excuse not to use correct grammar / spelling.

    That said, an honest mistake is just a mistake, it's when people don't make any effort that it bothers me.

      I am a grammar nazi. That's it. Texting tends to annoy me, as you get the idk, jk thing, misspells, not giving a **** etc. I do use some of these for laughs and giggles, or to be quick but if people overuse them...
      smilies I can deal with though xD

      I am definitely a stickler for proper grammar. I try to make sure everything I write is grammatically correct, and I constantly get on my parents when they use improper grammar. It's also the reason I hate texting and will never do it - texting "grammar" is absolutely atrocious.

        It really depends, though I tend to try to be as grammatically correct as possible about things. When it comes to IMs and whatnot, I find myself to be a fair bit lax on that though. I still make an attempt to come off understandable, at least.

          Bad grammar annoys me to no end. That is to say, when people make simple errors it annoys me to no end. I honestly make a lot of mistakes regarding things like the correct placement of commas, and I use a lot of fragments in my writing, though. I just hate it when people don't at least try to make their writing understandable, I guess.

          Though honestly the misuse of words like your/you're kind of irritates me. A lot.
