So who likes people?

Worst reason not to like someone ever.
It is a completely understandable reason not to like somebody, I am a grammar fanatic. I love it, and if people are not understandable why would I like them?
Again a bad reason to dislike someone. Being stupid is not an act of malevolence.
I know, it is just annoying, since most have the ability to be smarter.
I am not talking about just stupid people either, since my best friend is pretty dumb, it is more the ignorant people that do not understand things.

Bad grammar is not something people affect to annoy/harm other people (usually). It's based on colloquialisms and dialect. Basically you don't like people because they're not into one of your hobbies.

Ignorant people=/= malevolent people. If someone doesn't understand something, you educate them. I could understand this if their ignorance was directly harming someone else, but that wasn't stated in the post.

Ignorance can lead to malevolence...

Ummm, I am talking about people who murder the English language O_O
I try to educate people, but their ignorance is like a wall of stupid.

Yes. Yes it can. That doesn't mean it's the same thing.

This is a pet peeve of mine. A language cannot be 'murdered', only adapted. People have this idea that their language is this big sacred tablet of unchanging rules. This is bullshit. The 'rules' of the English language are inconsistent and half-assed. Mind you this isn't necessarily a bad thing because they became this way due to enough people not following 'proper' grammar until their individual twists made it to the rule book.

More specifically:
"The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary." ~ James Nicoll.

If I were to adhere to your standards of liking people, I'd hate you for this sentence. Do you mean 'Sure' as in 'Are you sure can murder one?', 'Sure' as in 'It is surely possible to murder one', or 'Sure' as in 'Of course Browder, I give you permission to murder English!'

Based on this statement I'd say that English is currently sleeping with Japan, or at least the anime industry. We'll see what STD (Sexually Transmitted Dialects) we picked up once the next generation writes the dictionary.

It shouldn't be. I'm just an anal, argumentative linguist with a stick up my ass. Plus people shouldn't dislike people because they don't speak/write the way they do.
It all depends, if i can understand the person, or not, I dislike those who I can not understand, which I said before.
Like "gangsters", I never know what the hell they are speaking about.
However literary non-sense that is understandable is good.

I knew what you meant. I just don't think you have any basis for saying it. Look at me, I'm educating 'ignorant' people.

'Gangsters'. Wow. You hang out in gangs do you? Brave for a furry. Just come out and say 'underclass Blacks'. You know you want to.

And by the way, what gives you the right to invalidate a dialectic form of speaking. Again, just because you 'don't understand it' does not give you valid grounds for dislike. In fact it does the opposite by making you look ignorant.

Hey, since when did I say I had rights to anything?
Also it does give me a reason to dislike it, since it is my mind and I can do with it what I will.

You didn't. My bad.:D

Also the 'it's my mind' argument isn't very logical or ethical for that matter, but whatever. You CAN do whatever you want. It was wrong of me to assume that you had some kind of entitlement for your prejudice.

Yeah, I'm broken, it is very amusing, the end of the argument was boring though --_--
