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

Lol,I just love how their everyone thinks I have bad grammar just for hating grammar Nazis,I hate them because how annoying they are,they ruin meaningful combersations by rubbing it in your face(or even insulting) that you made a tiny grammar mistake,I wonder if they will ruin a first grader that's a combersation with Jesus Christ just because he made a tiny grammar mistake - Nateawesomeness

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

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

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

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

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
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?

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.

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.

11 They fail to realize that most people rarely actually speak proper grammar. V 1 Comment
