"Don't start a sentence with a conjunction."

The most garbage thing I was ever taught. Oh, except for Chemistry, they told me noble gases didn't react and form bonds with other elements, then I went into advanced higher and HO HO wait, yes they do, they can form up to 8 ************* bonds.

That entire thing was like an extreme, real life, version of that **** people do when they don't have anything to say back in an argument online. Just type nothing back except *they're or something.

To be honest I hate it when teachers do things like this, or if someone corrects them so they embarrass that person for making them look stupid.

You're right, because this student wasn't asking for it or being obnoxious at all.

Prepositions are not words to finish a sentence with.
Use youre spell chekker to avoid mispeling and to catch typograhpical errers.
Don't repeat yourself, or say again what you have said before.
Hopefully, you will use words correctly, irregardless of how others use them.
Poofread carefully to see if you any words out.
Don't never use no double negatives.

These felt remotely relevant..

I used to teach English Grammar and Creative Writing privately, and where conjunctions were concerned, I wouldn't count off if students started a sentences with them, unless it was meant to be a professional piece. The average person doesn't speak grammatically correct 100% of the time, so why enforce it in their writing? It's subtle nuances like that that make us individuals, so while I'm not going to encourage bad grammar, being legalistic about it isn't the way to go either.

Perhaps teachers like this should read "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" or "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer". Mark Twain had no qualms about writing his characters dialogues realistically, and the former is still called "The Great American Novel". J.D. Salinger's "Catcher in the Rye" also comes to mind.
