I love the internet. It offers so much for instant viewing and access. Need to know who was in a movie? IMDB! Need to find directions? Mapquest! Recommendation for Chinese take-out in your neighborhood? Yahoo!
But Google is my favorite. I can find so many wonderful things via Google . . .
and I can find a whole lot of crap.
The fact is, the internets are full of stupid people. Or people who make no efforts towards correct spelling and sentence structure and grammar usage. I'm not demanding perfection - Lord knows I have typos in my past and an insane urge to spell grammar with an 'e' - but don't people realize how difficult it makes it to read a written medium?
Moreover, are people unaware that incorrect spelling may not only make your intent unclear, but completely alter it because incorrect spelling can make whole new words?
For example, definitely is a word frequently misspelled. One of my favorite variations was in relation to ovulation. The author was trying to say she definitely ovulated. In fact, what she actually said was that she defiantly ovulated. To which I can only reply, you go girl. Own your reproductive functions!
But that is nothing on the variant I stumbled across this evening; this woman did not definitely ovulate or even defiantly ovulate. She deviantly ovulated. Which raises all sorts of intriguing questions. . .
