Facebook Etiquette: the status

So merry Christmas, joyous Hannukah, happy holidays blah blah!
To the point:
It seriously frustrates me when people are so lazy that when they update their Facebook statuses, they don't even take the time to delete the "is" if they're going to write a sentence that doesn't use that word.
Jane is can't wait for the concert tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (notice the abormal and unnecessary number of exclamation points, as well)
Better way:
Jane can't wait for the concert tonight. (oh my GOSH, it was SO HARD!)
It also annoys me when people put song lyrics as their status when it doesn't even make sense. I mean, last time I checked it was supposed to be a sentence?
Jane if i was invisible.. (sorry, little Clay Aiken revival)
Better way:
Jane is wondering what it would be like if she were invisible.
(the joys of proper grammar)

I am seriously considering going through Facebook right now and yelling at all these people for annoying me with this.
