What do we expect? We now have two generations of people who've now spent more time on their phones and computers, than with their families! And from seeing their writing skills, it makes one wonder just what are they learning in school. In fact, some schools have now decided to no longer teach cursive hand writing, stating that it's no longer needed in today's technological society! Public education will become the bane for us all. And here's a Kickers for you. The N.E.A. at its convention in Dallas Texas a few years back, released a memo stating a group opinion of the perceived quality of the education our children are receiving at the hands of our union educators. And it stated that a four year college degree is no better than a quality high school education from the 1970's. Any wonder we no longer compete globally? And worse yet, need to import the highly skilled workers with the technical know-how to fill the positions many newer industries require. Sorry for the length of this, but this has become quite a sore spot for me since my friends passing.

Yota, calling people lame is really rude, you don't know them, you don't know if they have disibilties and if they do then they don't need you to tell them, they already know about it. Speak what you preach.

It's in the Drake song "The Motto" and that's how it became popular. But, in all reality, a band called Suicide Silence made it with their 2009 song You only live once. Now everybody's been walking around saying it. It's annoying.

I think there are more important things to rant about than poor spelling and grammar.
No I wouldn't say it annoys me. It might disturb me sometimes, but it does not annoy me.

You can have fun figuring out what it says .Sometimes people can't spell very good they have every right to right and misspell words if they can't spell you can't stop them from saying what they want because they can't spell that's ridiculous some are typos because of units people are using why don't you become a spelling teacher than you can feel good about your self correcting every one you must be a hard person to be around pritty much poke fun of the uneducated do you have any thing better to do ?What if some one has dyslexia ?Is it annoying funny are you better you are rude .Take care of your own problems and stop fault finding over look shot comings it will make you a better person and care more for people and less for spelling you don't know there story why they can't spell put a sock in it .

When it comes to this site "ask" I only care a little bit about the spelling. My phone and computer fix and mess things up often enough for me to understand that much of the problem. Plus I have issues that affect my spelling. And being stubborn to the point of thinking my very own interpretations in how something should be Spelt doesn't help the situation, example; or sumpthin'.

I'm beyond tired of people who send me a comment with "lol" or "lmao" or "omg" or any other abbreviation that has been overused to the point where nobody can remember what they used to mean. If technologically-absorbed people could stop using them for just one day, their minds would shut down from not having the chance to use abbreviations every 2 seconds.And nobody comment me with an abbreviation.
