Do you think less of people's arguments when poor grammar and/or profanity is used?
Being questionable on the subject, limits my answer,
All of you can go F**k yourselves. Lol
Just kidding, don't get twisted over that.
Grammar/typos? Not at all. That can happen to any of us.
Profanity? Depends on how it's used, but I'm inclined to dismiss the argument if it is used too often or as an attack on someone else.
Swearing makes them look petty to me and I find a correlation between swearing and the quality of their argument, but I don't judge it based on that.
Depends on how bad the grammar is, or the profanity for that matter.
Bad grammar makes me look down on the poll in a bad way but profanity can be used to highlight important parts, so, eh.
Not in general. But if the poll is completely unintelligible and their polls are consistently that way, then it does.
Of course not. That has nothing to do with their argument
No. I know there are a number of reasons why a person's grammar/spelling may be suboptimal, ranging from autocorrect issues to hastiness to dyslexia to ignorance to English being their 2nd, 3rd or 4th language... none of which are necessarily connected to the value of what they have to say.
The stinking auto correct gets me a lot.
I swear autocorrect is getting worse. If you don't watch it like a hawk it slips all kinds of silliness into your words. For example, it insists on turn the word "hastiness" that I used above into "nastiness." I had to correct it 3 times before it accepted the word I wanted. And it doesn't put the dotted red line under "hastiness," so obvious it knows that's a legitimate word. (Just did it again, too, *twice* as I typed that, so it didn't learn from the smacking I gave it in the original comment.)
I try to proofread before posting anything, but I still miss stuff.
I've tried turning autocorrect off, but somehow that makes things even worse - if that's possible.
