    or the people who clearly believe that grammar is the tool of the devil and as such dont use any at all it actually makes me mentally breathless to read the things that they write i can barely stand to look at it particularly when they start what should clearly be a new sentence or even a new paragraph but they continue on anyway i hate when people use two full stops instead of an ellipses what is two full stops it looks like your fingers accidentally tapped the keyboard twice it isnt a form of grammar at all it is neither a full stop nor an ellipses but i see where youre going with it..i think..

    The random full stops are the result of the damn iPhone! It puts them in for you at random locations.

    What bothers me are lazy spellers. Come on how hard is it to look up a word in a dictionary if you are unsure of the spelling.

    The one this weekend I saw was defaintly instead of definitely. If they knew anything about words they would know the word comes from the word finite. Aaaah

    I am no intellectual genius but lazy spelling simply makes people look thick in my eyes.

    I wouldn't call it random. You must randomly use 2 spaces instead of one. But if the 2 spaces = full stop shortcut bothers you it can be turned off in settings.

    I had no idea there was that shortcut. Ha I just though it was an iPhone blooper. Thanks. Oh my gosh. You are right. Wow. I didn't realize. This is amazing.

    I Know Somebody Who Types Every Single Status Like This!

    Why?

    You are not 'suppose to'.

    You are supposed ​to.

    I'm a bit fussy with those, I always go back and remove the full stops if it accidentally happens (like if I put two spaces and it puts a full stop in for me). I guess you could say it's lazy to leave them in there
