Why are there so many oddly phrased questions on Ask.com? I suspect an overly zealous auto-correct system.

Maybe you need to dial it back a bit, if possible! Otherwise there must be a lot of people participating who don't speak English very well. What do you think?

From what I have seen auto-correct has little to do with it. I believe for some it is people where English is a second language, and for others, actually the majority, it is just poor skills or they just don't care. Texting has done a great amount of damage as well.

Auto correct is like... Tanning... A little makes you look nice, healthy, like you get some sunshine... Too much gives you cancer...
