Thread Name: We must stop correcting grammar
Subject: RE: We must stop correcting grammar
The only function of grammar is to aid clear communication. In this day of texting, with accompanying word contraction anyone on this forum
insisting on correcting grammar and even spelling is a pedantic fool. They are more concerned with demonstrating their own superiority than anything else

Arrogance, pedantry, and dogmatism...the occupational diseases of those who spend their lives directing the intellects of the young.
