  • most of the time it doesn't, but when people post things like 'my kids teacher is stoopid, you should hear what she is trying to lean him' - I mean good grief! I thought it was a joke!

  • As long as I can understand what the person is trying to say, I'm ok with it. It's when I have no clue as to what is being said, that it annoys me.

  • Not really, if I can understand it, I don't really care.

  • No, not in the least. I have looked at things I have typed while I was talking to my husband and just laughed at some of my mistakes. We aren't writing for publication here, it's just fun. Now I do take offense to improper English and misspellings when I read the news or hear it on TV. Someone should have tried to edit, these are supposedly educated people. Last night I heard, "Nobody was hurt, or injured in the crash."

  • Yeah, it bothers me sometimes. I thought a lot of it was fast typing mistakes, but then I realized a lot of it is not.

  • No as long as I understand what they are saying it does not bother me unless they were talking to me in person.

  • Only when I can tell they just don't give a shit and not because of quick typing or ignorance of the language.
