   That doesn't make you ignorant.  Just means you suck at grammar.  The overuse of the word ignorant is rampant on this site...

I think that adults should know basic grammar.  And I can change ignorant to stupid, is that better?

Well if you are ignorant to how those words are spelled properly, then I would say it's on par. I think people look ignorant when they use the word ignorant but mean something else.

It makes you look mighty hypocritical when you are correcting one's speech while using the only "big" word in your rant incorrectly.

What word would you prefer be used? Some people are genuinely ignorant of the fact that their grammar is off.
