    Gunslinger, punctuation, capitalisation and post content influence the image you're projecting.
    I was told this not too long ago when I posted a shitty thread. I used shitty grammar, and had a complete disregard for most conventions in general. wen u pst lak dis, you sound like a fucking retard and encourage people like me(who would normally not mind lending a helping hand) to flame your ass.

    Don't say this is the internet; we are all speaking English(and if you are not GTFO). I am not saying 'perfect grammar of gtfo'. I am just saying that the better your grammar is, the better your image is.

    Chat Room:

    There is no room for a grammar Nazi in a chat room, things just move too fast, but one misplaced comma(or lack thereof) can really throw off the meaning of your post.

    Points and Tips that will make you seem sharp:

    Too: an abundance

    You're: you are
    your: possessive

    there: points out a place (go over THERE)
    their: possessive
    they're: they are

    Than: makes a comparison
    Then: sequential


    And remember:

    More often do you get away with being a smartass, than being a dumbass.





    On a semi related note... What is with all these people who put random shit for their names?

    Well the way I see it, I'm the judge and my bullets are the jury.

    Well you know what they say "you can't get through rock with a razor, but something blunt like a hammer might do the trick".

    I have never heard of that, also, it is quite possible to get through a rock with a razor. It'd just take awhile...

    I just made it up, actually. The point is that sometimes it is better to just say something than to try and make somebody learn it. (sharp wits Vs. blunt statements)

    I'd like to add something I admittedly found elsewhere...

    Don't mix your metaphors, and never, never, never re-word your metaphors.
    "Let's blow these guys" is not equivalent to "let's blow these guys away".

    I really think there needs to be a prerequisite that you must be able to tell these apart before using the internet. It's incredibly annoying when people misuse them all of the time.
