I see so many typing errors and misspelled words on here. I am not the best in the world at english, but I mean really bad. I see "wate" for wait, "half" for have, "pregernant" for pregnant, "muther" for mother, and so, so, so many more. It really scares me that these people raise children. I am a firm believer that you need to be educated and your children need to be educated. Does this bother anyone else?

Yes, it's bothersome and scary. People will say that it doesn't matter, but I think it just shows the way society is going. AAAHHHHH!!! YES, I do re-read my answers and posts for grammatical, spelling, and other errors.

Well, from the other perspective. I am a college educated woman, with a Bachelor's degree. BUT, I never took an actual typing course, so my typing is downright awful. And I admit it. I try to use spell check, but if my son starts crying or the phone is ringing, I tent to forget and just hit "post" or "send". One of my most famous typos was when I was warning fellow moms in my local group about car break-ins that had happened recently and I typed that everyone should make sure to "lick" their cars, not lock them! I'm basically saying that everyone who makes typos is not a complete idiot. That being said, there is some horrible grammar I see and that bothers me. I can barely understand some slang I hear, let alone read it when it is typed!

Yes it bothers me. Also the "text" language bothers me (ur, r, 2, 4, luv...all that garbage) Typos aren't the problem. I make typos. It's the horrid sentence structure (or lack of) especially that annoys me. If you can't form coherent sentences...well...it makes you wonder if they are just stupid or on drugs.
