Re: The Importance of Grammar?
I do the same, but the reason I do has less to do with personal preference and more to do with the fact I can't understand stuff that is badly written, as English is not my first language.

Put it this way: you could have the most incredible story ever - brilliant plots, interesting characters, all over amazing - but if the grammar's bad, I probably won't be reading past the first couple of paragraphs. Therefore, I won't know about your brilliant things as the grammar just turns me off immediately and makes me not want to read it.
