Why is the spelling of so many askers so bad?

Is it because most of the askers are young school kids? Are they mostly from within the US or from all over the world? Or could it be they're just too lazy to go back and retype the word? Has anyone else ever wondered about this?


Give me a star?

    because they don't have enough time to recheck what they have typed and not all of us are proficient in english.

    They weren't given the language as a precious thing. In many cases I imagine they had been, but didn't receive it.

    I was raised in an atmosphere of literacy without it forced down.

    I drank it in. My parents also encouraged me to give any interest a shot. Changing a tire never sank in. Yet I've met some rather nice people who, from a block away without looking, can tell you what's wrong with the sound an engine is making. But reading to them is looking at charts, or it's a chore.

    We are antenna, each at different frequency.

    The computer tech has his answers, but when a linguist asks why-something about his pc, per his own logic, the tech has a snooty reply. The linguist returns to his cerebralicity knowing he's been violated via condescension.

    Some people are insulted upon hearing the mildest of comparison/contrasts in references to a movie's or song's nuances. "Jest leave it beee!!"

    In no way am I a separatist. But...let's just say I believe people do better when they're amid the waters of their own strengths.

    If right here I suggest, 'Well, that does it, quite likely, there'll be fifteen misreadings,' then I'm instantly told, "Don't be so negative." Were I to smile with a proper breath, there's someone to pounce, "You're pretty sure of yourself."

    Can't win. So I'm content in my optimistic misery.

    Thanks for letting me vent.

    There are a lot of school kids on here, and a lot of lazy, minimally educated people. Look at the questions that some of them ask, like '"Who invented swear words?" "What does **** mean?" "Can some1 tell me if he likes me alot?" "Wat dose this words meen?"

    It's enough to drive the spelling and grammar police mad!

    They are mostly from the US. They ask because they are dumb, therefore, they have bad spelling.

    Also, the increasingly popularity of text speak/write may also contribute to this problem.

    luuk at the spellng of those reaplies, horible: haf of them star their answer with lower ceise letter, use i insted of I, its insted of it's, doesnt instead of doesn't, wat instead of what, think instead of thing.

    Want to improve your spelling? Use a spell checker but don't use auto completion. Type the whole word, and don't be lazy.

    Because it's too hard to do the spell check.

    It's really quite funny how English-speaking people tend to murder their own language...
