Let's turn the table (June)

Trolling as I see it has turned into a type of internet sport for people who love to malign other people with their rude offensive comments online. And they all seem to be so fearless in doing that, in sites such as Youtube. They just love to criticize every nooks and crannies of the video or of the people commenting on the video yet some of them actually lack the linguistic skill to do so. This linguistic troll problem is so prevalent in sites like Youtube that I am making a monthly list of these youtube comments so as to perhaps shed some light on the most common misused, misspelled and abused words online. Here are some:
The words “lik” and “tring” may be typographical errors. But the word “there” surely is not a typo.
There usually means a place.
They’re is the contraction of they are.
So, it should have been “It’s like they’re trying…” 

Doctor is a medical practitioner
Docter he advised pronunciation for the word Doctor.

This person should think twice before he calls a woman a bitch. He has no linguistic capability and manners to degrade another human being, he himself should clean up his act first before he goes around corrupting social media sites with his anger issue.

If you are trying to insult a nationality then make sure you know their ethnic group first.
Euro is the currency used by people of the European Union.
European refers to the people inhabiting nations of Europe.

Paid is the past tense of the word pay.
Payed is a word usually used by people who don’t know that paid is the correct one.
