Should we pick on someone as if we're in the 1st grade just because they have bad spelling and grammar?

The girl some of you made fun of just deleted her question. I'm not surprised. I just witnessed grown women making fun of and laughing at another mom because of her grammar and spelling. Am I the only one that finds this REALLY sad and immature? The mom even apologized for it and said that she was just learning. Way to show support to her, huh?

  • Oh geeeeeeeeee what? It's childish, plain and simple, to be mean to someone over something like that. I'm sorry, but if you think it's right that she felt she had to delete her question over that, I'm sorry Kerp, but I disagree.

  • It does make a question hard to read if the grammar is horrible. On the other hand I don't think that person derserves to be made fun of.

  • I agree with you 100%, the grammar police can be very cruel around here, I look past the mistakes and into the point of the post, it is just cruel to do anything else!

  • I didn't see the post either. There are a lot of mean people one here that love to tell you that you are a bad mom for this or that reason. It doesn't surprise me.

    I agree, they can be hard to read. But if I really can't understand it, I just skip it. I'm not going to post something just to correct or make fun of someone.

  • I agree it is awful and we wonder where our children learn how to be cruel.
