I'm Not A Grammar Nazi, However...

I have been a member of CM since 2007. I never correct anyone on their bad grammar.

However, lately I'm getting to the point where I can't even read a quarter of the posts on here. I literally CAN'T read them! Once I had to pass my phone to my husband to try to decipher. He gave up.

I'm to the point where I read a post and think, "This is what the schools are putting out?".

Why is it so difficult to write out a coherent post?

I don't bother with unintelligible posts. If they can't take the time to write it I'm not going to take the time to read it.

It's so sad. As a homeschooling parent I aim to do better. So far we have.

Knock on wood. LOL

I don't know what has happened. Someone responded to me last night with what I assume was a bitchy comment, but I couldn't understand what she was saying.
