It strikes me as "ironic" (whatever that means! :) that we often get questions asking how something should be "correctly" expressed, where the question itself gratuitously includes irrelevant "incorrect, non-standard" forms. For example, this recent question asks:
Can I say I am gonna go Amazon shopping when I want to buy stuff on Amazon?
I realise that in many cases it may be better to leave minor "errors" untouched (so long as they don't present problems in understanding the text), because they can provide useful clues for other users as regards the OP's general level of competence in English.
But it's my belief that even though most competent native speakers will often use the contracted forms (gonna, wanna, sposta,...) in speech (and perhaps in certain written contexts, unless "autocomplete" features make this more trouble than it's worth, as with some smartphones), they don't do this anywhere near as often in potentially more "formal" contexts (such as asking a question on an SO site).
So my question is:
How does the community at large feel about "tidying up / standardizing / sanitizing" somewhat "slovenly" usages such as the example above?
My own feeling is that non-native speakers are prone to overuse what they probably think of as "naturally colloquial" orthography such as that. And more specifically, they may not fully appreciate that for many native speakers, such "non-standard orthography" is effectively a "literary device" used to imply low educational or social status of a speaker (this sort of thing gets more tricky to interpret in text-based contexts like SO, but the general implication still holds).
Unless people post up/downvoteable "Answers" setting out how we should proceed, feel free to upvote my question if you think we should incline more towards "improving" text such as that example (as we would normally do with spelling mistakes, and certain other "errors, shortcomings" that don't directly relate to the issue being queried).
(Just downvote this question if you don't think we should consider making changes in this area.)
