Just a thought I had since I’ve been more active on here, as well as Reddit.
Why is everyone so caught up in phrasing, grammar, and choice of words? Dont get me wrong, I dont like to come off as an idiot, and to take someone seriously in a debate, there absolutely needs to be some semblance of grammatical fortitude and political correctness…
(Political correctness in the sense of objectively non-racist terms and the like, not… gender fluid or whatever the most recent term for a sexual orientation is.)
…but it seems that the entire credibility of someone with halfway decent ideas and a relatively calculated response is immediately either attacked or dismissed in a discussion if they dont proof read 3 times. Suddenly everyone in the conversation is too good for them or something. I could sit here all day on a thesaurus and use all of the over typed trite I want, but at the end of the day, I’m just a dude sitting on my couch in gym shorts putting off a much needed shower.
This really isnt a specific scenario, rather a general consensus of hundreds or thousands of posts.
Is this just a result of the digital age?
Hell half the time, this site lags out on my phone and I just cant be bothered to go back and correct all the mistakes, knowing they’re there.
I prefer people to speak simply, you can say a whole load of words without really explaining anything. It just bogs down the conversation with garbage no different than legislation.
This is in no means limited to virtual speech, I’m just curious about other peoples thought on the over-arching subject.
