Are you the grammar police.

I recently saw a post stating, "you are judged by your grammar". Proper grammar is not and never has been a sign of intelligence. The use of appropriate grammar only shows you know the rules of grammar and nothing else. It is not a sign of extensive knowledge or problem-solving skills.

My position is if you are paying attention to perfect grammar, then you are not paying attention to the message or the opportunity to learn. I see time after time on forum posts where someone uses improper grammar therefore, their post and their knowledge must be thrown out.

I would rather hang around people who consider learning and the opportunity to learn the priority over whether or not the information is presented in the "proper" manner.
