Horde and Hoard.
Normally I'm willing to let a lot of issues slide, but that just really gets me. No, you do not have a horde of potions, you have a hoard of potions.

What I find very annoying is when self-proclaimed 'grammar nazis' disregard someone's argument or opinion because of a grammar mistake, or when they look down on someone, or belittle their intelligent for the aforementioned reason.
It's childish and immature to fight over such petty things. ~

This comes from the days of cell phones having a limited number of characters to send in a text message, so to cram as much information in 161 characters, people would shorten the words as much as possible and blatently remove punctuation. But yes, this is one thing that seriously gets on my nerves....
Also, when people say 'But' at the end of a sentence. This is pretty much only verbal, but still *shudders*
Another thing that gets to me is when somepony in a chat room types phonetically....

Not anymore. I prefer using grammar now. Common grammar mistakes are usually on words I don't use often. Such as mispelling "throne" as "thrown".
Though most of my typing mistakes come from me hitting the wrong key on the keyboard. Writing "if" instead "of" because the I and O key are next to eachother is a common one.

I don't usually type that mistake but IRL I'll make the mistake of "should of" instead of "should have" and also "why" instead of "while".
