Hi, Sometimes I see this sentence on social media

Stop DMing me asking ...


I can almost understand what that mean but I am confused by grammar.

I think that ‘asking’ need to change to ‘to ask’ or ‘and asking’.(not exactly)

Is ‘asking’ in ‘Stop DMing me asking’ grammatically correct or not but accepted?


Thank you for your advice

    "Asking" is fine. Another example:

    She's always calling me up asking me questions about homework.

    "Asking" tells us what she does when she calls. You could change it to "to ask," which would put slightly more emphasis on her purpose, or you could say "and calling," but neither correction is necessary. The grammar is fine.
