Top Ten Reasons to Hate Grammar Nazis

No I did not make this list because I have bad grammer,I made it because grammar nazis are boring

The Top Ten

1 They think grammar is the most important thing in the world

If you're getting As, your English teacher is incompetent. Your errors, and there are many, are what they are, and should speak for themselves.

The reason you made this list is because grammar Nazi's are "boring? " - Therandom

Theirs much more important things then stupid grammar mistakes - Nateawesomeness

Well, AStumpedHuman, your username suits you well. You’re very stumped, aren’t you? There’s an exception, of course, for people who are just learning how to speak English, but people in the UK and US should know how to properly speak their language. Idiots! - Hermione_Granger220

2 They always interrupt people just to tell them they made a grammar mistake

Actually, I wait until someone is done talking to lament over their horrific grammar. I can be polite and still be a Grammar Nazi. - Merilille

I do this to my parents just for a laugh and to see their reaction. It's fun!
But as a member pointed out to me a couple of days ago, my grammar isn't so crash hot. Ahh no one's perfect. - Britgirl

AStumpedHuman, really? I’m not 20, I’m 13. A 13 year old who actually appreciates proper grammar. - Hermione_Granger220

Umm... excuse me? I’m a grammar Nazi.
And yeah, I do that. It’s very irritating when people don’t use proper English. They should know how to speak properly. - Hermione_Granger220

3 All they use for comebacks is, "at least I have good grammar"

I don't really mind grammar "Nazi"'s, but I think it's important to remember that language - in part - belongs to the people who use them. - keycha1n

Third grade insults... - Nateawesomeness

Third grade language skills.

AStumpedHuman, don’t be stupid. Oh wait, you can’t help it, can you? - Hermione_Granger220

4 They act like grammar mistakes are emergencies

I do notice that many users make grammar mistakes, I just prefer not to say much. Guess accelerated English makes you notice grammar mistakes more easily. - Therandom

This is so me! - Hermione_Granger220

5 They hate someone just because they don't have good grammar

I generally try to avoid correcting people's grammar, but I do occasionally. - Therandom

AStumpedHuman, what is that even supposed to mean? - Hermione_Granger220

Not true! I’m a grammar Nazi, and all of my friends make grammatical errors, but of course I don’t “hate” them. - Hermione_Granger220

6 They think they're cool for correcting everyone's grammar

Not "cool," just literate and not mentally lazy. You seem to think the deterioration of language is unimportant, but it's directly tied to deterioration of the culture, which is already in a state of advanced decay.

Not all of them,but some of can get pretty annoying. They think they're all "perfect" with grammar. I bet they make grammar mistakes too sometimes. - cosmo

If you're not in person, it's fine. If you're talking in person though, I don't want to hear it. - Therandom

7 They expect to get praised when they correct someone

No, we don’t. Not at all. But we believe that proper English is important, and people should use it. - Hermione_Granger220

8 They're ruining this site

This is one of the few factors that isn't actually. - Therandom

TheTopTens is decreasing because of how much grammar Nazis their are - Nateawesomeness

Really can't handle the language, can you?

AStumpedHuman, what’s that even supposed to mean? Lol. - Hermione_Granger220

9 When you're saying something really important, grammar doesn't matter but grammar Nazis think it does

Grammar absolutely does matter. Aside from the fact that using the right words at the right time makes what you have to say more intelligible, demonstrating you have the education and intelligence to speak properly adds credibility to your "important" points.

Grammar matters. Seriously. It makes people easier to understand. - Hermione_Granger220

Lord of memes:oi m8s I need to warn you that their will be,a volcanic eruption;
Grammar Nazi:Watch your spelling mistakes,it's hi instead of oi,and mates instead of m8s,also,put a comma after the misspelled mates,and erase the comma after be,also,that's the wrong punctuation at the end of the sentenc- -lord of meme quick scopes the annoying grammar Nazi- - Nateawesomeness

10 When losing an argument, they attack someone's grammar instead of addressing the actual point

"When losing an argument, they (attack their critics as Nazis) instead of addressing the actual point."
It's called irony, in which your rants are unwittingly steeped.

The Contenders

11 They fail to realize that most people rarely actually speak proper grammar.

Since you know...they can't tell between age - Nateawesomeness

No, I’ve realized it all right. No one speaks properly these days. They should at least try, because proper English is important. - Hermione_Granger220

What if they come from another country? Like France, Netherlands, or Spain? Not everyone in the world needs proper grammar - AStumpedHuman

AStumpedHuman, why do you always have to bring this up? Seriously, don’t be an idiot. If they’re from another country, then I’m not talking about them. I’m talking about people who know English, from the UK or US. They should know how to correctly speak their own language. - Hermione_Granger220
