Not nearly.

dose = does
exsist = exist
ive = I've

I'll ignore the minor errors in the rest.

Rather pathetic spelling, for someone who is writing in his native tongue. If you think this makes you look big and tough, you've got another think coming. It makes you look very, very dumb, kind of sad and extremely laughable.

What do you mean by another think coming? I think you should take the plank out of your own eye before you go off on a rant again about someone else's English. That's what is really pathetic.

"You've got another think coming"; an American (New England / Mid-Atlantic) expression meaning that you should reconsider your words.

Moreover, this chap is supposed to be a native-speaker. If you've seen his other topic asking the same thing, you know it's horribly illegible. This one is hardly better. I think it is outrageous for someone to abuse one's own language in such a horrid fashion.

Yes, but as correct as Think may be, is it really beneficial to use the word incorrectly (grammatically speaking) to prove a point about good grammar?

Seeing as it's a fixed expression, there is nothing wrong with using it. However, if you disagree with that, feel free to view it as ironic.

Probably because you live too far south. I suppose you will have plenty of alternatives for New England/Mid Atlantic-expressions. For example, I doubt South Carolina will use a plural form of 'you' ("yous"), which is not uncommon in the previously mentioned area.

So you assume that I have lived here my entire life. Which I haven't. I have lived in NC, NY, NJ and California, in addition to SC.

The thing here is that this is an international forum, and if you go and write things like this:

http://www.queenzone.com/queenzone/forumnew/forum_topic_view.aspx?Q=868774

you won´t get as many responses as you could.

I mean, what is this?- Isn´t this obvious that the majoraty of people at this board doesn´t understand this type of language. I struggle to understand English as it is (i´m from Portugal), so i´m not going to loose my time trying to figure out this.

In my country this is getting colossal porpotions amongst kids, that due to mobile messages and MSN, try to cut some words and invent some new ones!
Teachers are already saying that in the future you´ll end up including those words in the diccionary because youngsters are not going to change that attitude.

This is a big issue and in my opinion this is just mental lazyness, and in general teachers are let students get away with the bad spelling.

I´m not here to judge, but language is the main culture aspect of the country, so lets try to "Comunicate" the best way we can, without ruining what your/my culture has best.

This board was a great help for me and otheres to learn how to spell and write English. Let´s keep the standards high in this issue, and i think we´ll all benefit from it. (sorry my bad writin!!!)

Take care

Unfortunately The Chav culture in the UK has destroyed proper English. Many people spell words by the way they sound on a mobile phone as opposed to their true spelling. For example

...which is very sad, as English is the 3rd most poetic language I know of (after Hebrew and French).
