well, isn't it obvious? Stupid is the new smart these days. Most girls think it's cute and most guys that do it think its "cool". If you ask me its the love of ignorance :)

I think that there are several causes. First, the educational system has been dumbed down so badly that no one has a chance to learn good spelling and grammar and to have an extensive vocabulary. Then, those who do know will fail to pay attention to what they type so anything gets sent. They could care less. So, lousy education and general indifference is the answer. Solution only comes from caring enough to do something about it. I have thought about offering remedial English classes but don't think anyone would care enough to put in the time.

Hey, I'll be completely honest with you guys and say that I couldn't be bothered to read EVERYTHING in this thread. But with the whole if you can read you should know how to spell part...it does make sense....IF YOU HAD THE MONEY TO GO TO A SCHOOL IN THE FIRST PLACE...
Remember not the whole world has money in their pockets to throw away at a system where their kids will learn to spell and add etc, when they first have to worry about GETTING that money in the first place.
Not that I'm saying I'm miss know it all, but I've travelled a fair bit were literally I had neighbours that lived in clay huts. For their families it was about having their kids take care of the house until they were old enough to work and get money for the family.
Another part altogether has to do with the learning difficulties that some kids suffer from, nowadays dyslexia is found more often in classes with inturn makes it hard for kids to read and write.
...sorry but I felt that that side of the argument needed to be made aware aswell. Completely agree that it's annoying when people don't know how to spell, but shit...we're all human. And as humans we're all prone to making mistakes.

You figured it out. The only thing mature here is the age of the bodies. Some are really good people, though, so don't give up. Like your style.
