The people that I am talking about are usually teens or people speaking in "ebonics". While most of us think of black people when we think of ebonics, we all probably know white people do it as well. I am NOT talking about mistakes, but purposefully speaking or typing incorrectly. Do you not care that people think you are stupid? If this offends you, you are probably one of the stupid people.
I do not reply to posts that are annoying to read because of all of the ignorant spellings. I am not going to waste my time replying to someone who may not even have the brain capacity to understand my response.

My dad was an English major and my grandmother taught me to speak the" King's English." Personally, I think it is an expression of individuality when a person uses unique dialect. Times are a changin. I do find it somewhat discouraging that grammar is overlooked in the public schools and kids are not learning how to spell or speak properly. It is definitely your choice to respond or not, just as it is a choice to speak and spell however a person wants.

I agree with TheDiva320. I just find it annoying and sometimes the grammar is so bad, I don't bother to finish reading it. A teacher back in high school was telling us that a girl had failed a final exam for her English class. I believe she had to write a report and she wrote it ALL in text lingo. Lol! Apparently, this foolish girl thought her paper was a guaranteed "A." When she saw that she had failed, her parents got so mad that they actually thought they had a lawsuit. Needless to say, it was thrown out and the grade stayed.
