I'm sorry, but when people don't use correct spelling and grammar, it automatically turns me away from their highDEA.
I mean if you are going to expect me to read your idea, you could at least make it easy, or even pleasurable to read.
For Example:
When you need to say "you are" in a sentence.. Do not put your.
Type out "you are", and go replace the "space and the a" with an apostrophe.
This will result in YOUR highDEAS receiving more attention.
(And don't stop with this, it is only an example. Try to fix all grammar) LOL
That is all.

Honestly, how many stoners do you think care about grammar when we're high as shit? Most probably don't give a fuck. Also, you spelled literacy wrong, so don't bitch about spelling.

Hi I'm Ricky Bobby. And if you don't read the tags then FUCK YOU!
And when I am stoned I am OCD about spelling. I would rather somebody think of me as an intellectual stoner, that can hold his own conversation (even if it is a typed one), than a dumb-fuck that smokes weed.
BTDUB.. It wasn't meant to be offensive.. Just a heads-up to the people that think nobody cares about grammar.
That is all, Again.

LMAO!!!! You called it with the tags, that's sooo funny!! Hell yea. I fully agree. I like to represent stoners in a good light, since people have the image of that deflated chick melting into the couch from that one ATI commercial. As if stoners didn't already have a bad reputation, people play into the whole "we're stoned, don't care about anything" attitude. Like in many previous debates, I believe smoking weed just enhances who you are. If you're a retarded asshat, then you'll become an even more retarded asshat. Anywho, very enthusiastic two thumbs up. =D

you might wanna quite if your high consists of you getting annoyed by peoples grammar, c'mon man you cant expect us to keep our English at your university P.H.D level(< educated guess from personal experience with grammar freaks)

I love how so many people say that no one cares about grammar yet tons of people have put up post's about it. Here one of mine from a while ago

Bahaha I saw the typo and was like *squinty face* and read the highdea and then the tags and was like xDD

You're a clever man. (Note: Correct usage of the conjunction "you're.")

I am OCD as hell about typing. Sometimes I have to spend a long time editing and making sure everything is grammatically correct to make myself happy. xD

Another pet peeve: Their/They're/There.

 
 
Sun, 05/01/2011 - 1:44am

Haha the tags are great

I'm OCD about these types of errors too, it just bothers me when i see the wrong form of a word.

Another one: mixing up loose and lose

Since we're listing them out, here was one of my rants from FuckBook:

People need to learn how to spell. It's your language, freaking learn it. Learn the difference between then/than, your/you're, no/know (REALLY!), there/their/they're, the list goes on. "Would of," there's no such thing as that, it's "would have." This is all quite simple. It's perplexing, irks me to no end. Oh, and when people who misspell every other word try to correct others--GRR, hypocrites. You. SUCK.

Also, I have to add to/two and bored/board/bord. *Facepalm*

britt,dammit u beat me to it. also fuck grammar. i'm a writer, and i do well with grammar when I want to. but i'm high when i'm on highdeas so i don't care. i don't post to become popular. i post to get the ideas out of my head. otherwise i'll dwell on it forever.

One that gets me,
"I could care less"
Oh really? You could? Then why are you sharing this with me like it's big news???
If you wanna say you don't give a shit about something, please make sure you COULDN'T care less before you make the effort to tell me about it

 
 
Wed, 05/11/2011 - 6:34am

"i could care less."
Doesn't that phrase imply that you do care somewhat, because it would be possible for you to not care as much?

This is my opinion:
Sure I kinda dislike reading HighDEAs with bad spelling and grammar, but please don't turn this site into a place where we hear people bitching about things.
I won't down vote this 'HighDEA' though.

 
 
Mon, 05/16/2011 - 3:33am

Honestly....it's the Internet. Come on man, who cares THAT much about grammar? WHY care that much about grammar? This isn't a college essay or anything. I will never turn this into someone, they will never grade it, and did I mention it's the INTERNET? I have a decent vocab, and I can talk like any normal person (probably better). I don't understand why having absolutely perfect grammar on the internet matters at all.

Owlex Says:

All I am saying.. Is if the person with the highDEA is illiterate...Their highDEA will probably suck.
But if they think their idea is good enough and they take the time to spell everything right.. even though they don't really know how to.. Then that idea should be seen. Not the other ones.

 
 
Mon, 05/16/2011 - 8:19pm

yo man don't waste your time, animals are fucked up, stick to your own.

 
 
Mon, 05/16/2011 - 4:54am

i agree, the their/there/they're and too/two always drive me nuts. but i gotta say, man, the u.s. school system fails a lot of people, and it's sad. too many kids get stuck in a cycle of poor schooling and few opportunities, and it doesn't look like the government cutbacks are slowing anytime soon either. no child left behind my ass.

 
 
Mon, 05/16/2011 - 2:51pm

If spelling is so damn important to you then you must have not realized that were all STONED when we are on highDEAS. Take that stick out of your ass and pack a bowl, you might stop bitching

Mon, 05/16/2011 - 6:28pm

Don't you hate it when people do that? Blame the fact that they can't spell on being stoned? People, man...One of the reasons why weed has the reputation it has.

Saying you're spelling things wrong because you're high is giving ammo to people who say weed makes you dumb. If you support weed, then you should want to uphold a good image of it. Smoking isn't like drinking--drinking would make you spell like shit, not weed. You're still coherent after you smoke. It all boils down to personality traits, really.

for me spelling is an issue but proper punctuation is kind of hard to follow. i never did understand it. just saying not everyone is great with english

 
 
Mon, 05/16/2011 - 6:26pm

people type how they talk, because when we type were saying what were typing in our heads before its even typed out.
thus being the reason everyone types different, with different ways to spell and/or punctuation,
theres nothing wrong with that?
chill out'man.
everyones different and if you don't like the way people type. get the fuck over it, don't read it and please DONT make a highdea stating that people cant type.

 
 
Mon, 05/16/2011 - 6:37pm

You said it, everyone's different. There are people who don't care about grammar and people who do. If you don't like that this person cares, maybe YOU should: "get the fuck over it, don't read it" as you so delicately put it. We're all entitled to our opinions. With all the ridiculous highDEAS being pumped out nowadays, nobody, NOBODY has to censor themselves. At least he has a point, unlike some unsubstantial highDEAS that are making it to the top recently.

You put two periods separated by a space after the word sentence, "That is all" is not a complete sentence. "LOL" was not a sentence either.

I agree, I hate it when people use incorrect grammar!
^ sarcasm.

Nahh, what I really hate is people telling me what not to do.
