Let's Turn the Table (February)

When we browse a video library site such as Youtube it is quiet normal to expect a number of rude comments, whether these comments are related to the video or not, people seem to be unfazed in a number of social media sites. We see a number of people disrespecting the video platform just so they can present their egotistical nonsense by commenting and offending other subscribers. These offenders are known as internet trolls. And as this trolling trend grows, the growth of misspelled, misused and abused words online grows along with it too. And because of the prevalence of these things on sites like Youtube, I opted to make this monthly list of Youtube comments to somewhat turn the table on them. Here are some:
It should be “the man has serious balls”. SMS lingo should be used in the realm of the SMS world alone.

I guess what this person was trying to say is “OMG I’m dying of laughter”.
Dieting is the practice of eating healthy food in regulated quantity.
Dying means drawing to an end.

The word “steeling” is quite different from the word ”stealing”.
Steeling is verb that pertains to an act of mental preparation for something difficult.
Stealing on the other hand is an act of taking an object without any consent from the owner.
It should be “I love when the store person thought that guy was stealing HA HA HA!”

People often have this misconception that the word “alot” is placed together as one word, when it should be “a lot”.
To repeat is to say it again; it should be “repeat” not “reapeat”.

If this person is trying to insult and mock an accent, he should at least learn their proper nationality.
They are called “British” and not “Brittis”.
