Oh, and spelling mistakes! As soon as someone misspells something, someone will point it out. Thats free speech for ya.
This is a pet peeve of mine. Not being called out because I misspelled something, but calling people out for not being able to navigate what should be a basic skill. Sure, call me a Grammar Nazi or a Spelling Nazi. When you cannot formulate and create a valid, CLEAR comment in the medium in which you respond, the validity and "intelligence" of your comment SHOULD be questioned.
I'm not talking a minor lapse in spelling or grammar. We all do that. When a person consistently displays poor writing skills, I have to begin questioning the person AND her/his/its argument. If a person is too lazy to look up a word, how in f**k am I supposed to trust they did any research into a given topic being commented on?
Unfortunately, part of the "entitlement" attitude online seems to think the tables should be turned and that I am supposed to wade through something that looks like random letters vomited onto the Web and then glean the message behind the gibberish. Yeah, it's MY FAULT that people cannot properly communicate an opinion, and pointing out the ineffectiveness of a person's communication skill makes ME the bad guy. Just like poor Dahmer wouldn't have killed those guys if they had not made themselves available, or that girl was BEGGING to be gang raped because she wore something that made her feel pretty or sexy.
Online culture is toxic, for the most part. My option of choice is to avoid and limit exposure to it. Again, just like grammar and spelling, it boils down to personal responsibility, which is sorely lacking in online culture. Screw that; personal responsibility is lacking everywhere these days.
