I think that's an extreme term to use for it. But I do tend to notice errors, and they do bother me. I usually keep silent, unless it's in a book that I paid for, and then I might complain loudly - to someone.

Proper spelling and grammar is mandatory for Introvert Island users, or I'm snapping a pencil off in your ear

Proper spelling and grammar is a must for me. It really pains me that my grammar in my native language sucks.
Why does it has to be that way?

I'm a stickler for proper grammar, spelling and punctuation (and yes, I'm definitely an introvert). In my defense, my mother was a teacher, so language rules were drilled into me at an early age, and I also worked as a newspaper editor for a time, so those rules did have some importance in relation to me collecting a paycheck. But, honestly, when I see misspellings or careless grammar, I tend to view a person as lazy or uneducated. In my opinion, if you want to come across as competent and you want people to take you seriously, write accordingly.

I'm fairly severe on bad written grammar, but it's primarily because I see it as a symptom of failing education systems. For example: Huffington Post depends on independent (free-lance) bloggers for approximately 70% of their content. They save money by paying the bloggers very little for their work, but more importantly, they have virtually NO editorial scrutiny before publication. When you read a piece on Huffington, you'll see the most egregious grammatical errors and word confusion (cite, site, sight, etc). We're seeing the end result of the attitude in the education system that success in organizing thought and presenting it in writing supercedes the "mundane" necessity of presenting it in correct grammatical form.
