Why do most, not all, but most of the posters on topix appear to lack a basic understanding of grammar and spelling? My waiter at Rio Grande tonight has a better grasp of the English language than 80% of you ignorant fucks. But seriously, why is it this way? Is it because people make accidental mistakes typing? Is it because our school system is terrible? Why?

The 80% you speak of likely don't have a book in their home. They were raised without books. Only use the library for videos and to fart around on Topix.

I'm so mean, when I see them type the way they do, I discount any opinions they have. I don't think I'm alone in that, either. Can't spell, can't express a clear idea, can't write simple sentences? Then you don't count. It's horrible the way I think.

You're someone who is educated, so why do you feel the need to use such foul language? I certainly hope that you don't use profanity in the classroom. There are better ways to express yourself w/out having to use the "F" word. Thank you and have a wonderful day.

Why care so much about it when this is just a message board for EVERYONE and not an extension of school
