Ever go on MySpace and there are people posting (of all ages - but alarmingly noticeable are older folks in their 40's or so) who cannot spell, punctuate, or effectively say whatever it is they mean?
Come over here, or on the Transformers website I post at, and people write complete sentences, we usually spell things correctly, and can punctuate sentences. While that might've been boring in grammar school, it makes us all look intelligent here.
I know that on MySpace you have a lot more users:
- Some are non-native English speakers who might not even come from English speaking backgrounds
- Many are youngsters who just haven't had enough grammar school classes yet or had it drillled into them how important it is to be able to express themselves in text
But what is the excuse for 40 year plus adults who can't communicate and are trying to establish themselves as having some political wisdom or knowing something about religion they want to influence everyone else with?
Seriously, it looks like the dumb typing for the dumb.
