Then they cry when people call them out! When non English speaking people try to get there point across and communicate,
Should read:

try to get their point across

See, that one slipped by me, and the spelling and grammar check is no help there.

Agreed and that is why, honestly, some people should go back to school (I am not saying you should, it's just a general comment). Some things just have to be memorized.

It would not be a biggie for most people to take English at night school a couple of nights a week, most won't consider it though because they would be embarrassed to admit just how poor their language abilities actually are.

Basic mastery of ones own mother tongue should be a priority for anyone IMHO. After all, most of my European friends have mastered multiple languages...we English speakers simply get away with being lazy.

I have wanted to start a thread about this many times but figured it wouldn't do any good and or I would be bashed to pieces.

Like a previous poster said, Preview you post before submitting it. I use Firefox that has a spell checker built in, plus Google tool bar that also has a spell checker. The Google spell checker is better in figuring out what word I'm trying to spell. The people that are the worst abusers of the English language probably don't use Firefox or Google. If they do then they are morons and probably have no clue what the red line is indicating.
Also I think Mark should make the Location and Birthday in your profile mandatory, then we would know more about these illiterate or Ignorant people.

I agree wholeheartedly with the op. I am not perfect myself but I DO make an effort to be intelligible when I write.

You might be the smartest person in the world but if you can't read, write and spell properly then you just sound like a dope.

Anyone who gets pissed about simple, and improper wording like, their, there, is wound way to tight. It's pretty easy to figure out most post, by the topic, and prior paragraphs, when it comes too, There, their, ect....

Now, I do get pissed when someone types, and uses good commas, but dose'nt use a space after the comma.

It just sucks to be constantly subjected to such crap English! Yes, I can make out most posts but it bites that I have to work at it many times. There are some prime offenders and sadly they feel the urge to post - A LOT.

No one is perfect, and it is easy to see the people who try. The ones that don't try, are the ones that kill me. These are the people who are hardest to take serious.

Their ?

Not laughing at you btw.

I just wanted to point out that when I started the thread, I did not mean to refer to common mistakes like that but mostly more serious ones.
There are really times that I am trying hard to understand what people mean to say. No correct typing, no spaces or commas, etc.

But also, a simple thing like the above is easily corrected since as soon as you type it, a red underline appears to let you know. It's just that people don't bother paying attention what they type and worst they don't bother correcting it.
That is what made me start the topic. All you have to do is read again the text, but people just hit submit once they stop typing...

Thinking about it l know two multi millionaires who can`t read and write. They may be illiterate but they are definitely not ignorant.

Bingo!
It boils down to this: How well do you want to be understood? If being understood and understanding others matters to you, then take the time to study our language -- and EDIT what you write until it conveys precisely what you intend without errors and with no unneeded words, phrases or sentences.
The written word is already lacking in so much non-verbal communication. I believe it's essential to try and make up for the limitations by making posts cohesive and understandable. When we really want to add to a conversation, we can take a minute to proof read our posts.

I blame it all on the texting that goes on now. Texting itself has it's own language and can be hard to understand. As for the education, I've seen older people who make the same mistakes and I know most of them know better. People as a whole are getting lazy and do not care any more.
