There is a conversation of sorts happening on FB right now. Someone is claiming they can tell who is on PA by the way they spell in most cases. He says most the people he runs across that CAN spell properly are NOT on PA, those who CANNOT spell properly ARE on PA.

What are you thoughts?

My grammar is far from perfect but I'm an English major and was on PA temporarily for a short amount of time.

Mine is no where near perfect either, and I was on for a short time as well. I think he's talking about long term folks from the way he's talking.

But how can he tell that they have been on it long term? He sees a person with poor grammar and assumes that they have been on PA?

I guess I'll admit that I see an astronomical amount of people on PA who have poor grammar and spelling. It doesn't mean they are stupid, though. It's quite possible that they are on PA because they didn't get a good education.

Is he basing this theory solely off cafemom FS posts? If cafemom is the basis for his theory he may have a point.
