What is up with the poor grammer?

I'm going to admit that I don't always spell properly or write the most grammaticaly correct sentences, but some of these posts are driving me crazy. They are so poorly spelled and stated that it's really hard to read them. Do people just not care how stupid they look when typing a response or posting a new discussion? It really drives me nuts.

Hey, kidsrock, I think that many on here don't think they have to be completely grammatically correct because this is a messageboard. We are here to be ourselves and not work hard at making an impression on anybody. We have to do things perfectly at work and at other serious times so we can use a little bit of a break to just talk to each other on here. I know there are some postings that are very hard to read but lets try and be a little more patient with each other, okay?

I wasn't saying that every single word they write should be correct and I don't think I was saying anyone was perfect. I just meant some people don't care at all what their message looks like or how uneducated they make themselves look with their postings.

Poorly spelled? You mean like the word grammar, not grammer? I think a lot of the problems are caused by non-English speaking people having to write in English. It's not easy for them.

Like I said, I'm no angel at spelling but at least I attempt. I just get frustrated with the ones that are so poorly written you can't even understand that they're trying to say.

Well for me, those are blessings in disguise. I added a response to one discussion which read "What do you prefer", that it should be "which" rather than "what". Mylot added a score. That's all.

Yeah its really bad especially when they start typing in ebonics. Well people will type how they talk I assume so you just have to surf through the rift to get one you like. Also if someone responds with.... yeah I know and thats it I give them a big fat minus.

Not so much with the spelling, I can't understand all the letter's that mean something. For example ppl=people, there are some that I can not figure out.lol, see what I mean just kidding.
