The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I am wondering while reading posts how many would be able to pass a simple English test.

I present a post by a fellow DGRUer. I don't know if he is serious or not. That is ridiculous!

amen guys, i hope he is able to make good things happen for the economy, as well as help mend relations between minoritys and the general population, i am sure somewear ratial things will still happen and the economy obviousely will not be fixed overnight, but i feel this is a step in the right direction towards elieviating ratiall tension that still exhists in some areas and hopefully cause changes for the good that are needed were the economy is concerned. congratts to the new president !

Is what you mean to say, you paly disc golf? Or, do you play disc golf?
As a member of law enforcement, I'm sure you have to file plenty or reports, does anyone correct the grammar before they are filed away?
Sorry man, I had to do it. Well, it was funny to me.

This problem is not only with disc golfers, it's all over the internet. It's this new generation of medium that the population has to express itself. Text messages, blog, chat rooms and emails all seem to create an informal atmosphere for people using them. They feel like it's not necessary to use correct grammar or spelling.

It will eventually become part of early-education curriculums and kids will learn the habit of doing all of these things with correct grammar and spelling. I don't think it's anything disc golf should busy itself with.

I would encourage more people to try to use better grammar to make their points, especially when arguing.

I never knew we would be graded on the internet! Sheesh, of all things to complain about, grammer online. WOW!!! I agree wiht Mark, way down the list. And if someone wants to see what discgolfers are like, do they really judge us by our grammar. Hell, I work in law enforcement and paly disc golf, in most places, thats a contradiction of terms. Go figure!

in response to you're question as to weather it would be positive or negative for a non-disc golfer to see this site, that is highly unlikely!(Who learned me how to spoke?) In all seriousness, grammatical or spelling errors (which I make plenty!) in this setting don't really bother me. Although my wife emails in all caps all the time and it drives my nuts! I do however find it amusing when following a discussion thread and someone will respond to a comment with a grammatical or spelling correction. I mean honestly, is that the most intelligent, creative, constructive retort that you can muster? Not directed at anyone just a little rant.

Well I have personally spoken to Miss South Carolina about US Americans and their trouble with maps and words and symbols. She was in favor of World peace and stuff like that.

My last grammar class was in 7th grade and I'm sure it shows (sic). But I figure if I write a whole lot of words then maybe some of them will make sense (sic).

I know that in general people are getting their point across. In some of the areas they talk about getting the sport to grow. If someone comes to the websites and sees the grammar and spelling, will that be a positive or negative for the sport? I see errors on quite a few websites, even professionally written ones. I am personally grateful for spell checks. I am thinking mainly about people born and raised in the USA.

What to do about it? Good question, I don't have the answer. I think many of the errors are due to pure laziness. For example, capitalizing the first word of a sentence. The difference between there, their and they're takes a little more thinking but still isn't too difficult.

I know my wife is correcting me often on my spelling and grammar. I still personally have a hard time with to and too.

Sheila and I have thought a bit about some people maybe feeling inhibited about posting due to English/writing/grammar/spelling skills and wondered what we might do to help with that. Can't say as we've come up with any solutions that doesn't involve too much complication.

I think it depends on how simple and what is being measured - formal, functional, vocabulary, etc. In as diverse a network as this, I think anything that gets your point across works as well as anything else.
