ILLITERACY on topix
Literate

#1 Sep 18, 2008
Does anyone find it annoying and mind-boggling at the amount of spelling and grammar errors in the comments here on topix? Are locals really that ignorant and uneducated? Notice that I didn't say "stupid", which, in my opinion is educated but does it anyway. "Ignorant" to me means to never know better in the first place and not educated.

That is what we would all hope it to be, in reality though, I am afraid it is not. I have seen so many errors, it is too horrible to be just typing errors. Sorry.

Some are typing errors. And the rest, well, good ole Winn Parish education.

The Winn Parish education has nothing to do with it. It is mostly type-o's and computer errors.

I notice them, but I shrug and go on. We can't all be good at everything. I'd hate to know that I had something I needed to say and the only thing anyone was concerned with was my grammar.

YMMV.

Agree, but sometimes they are just so funny that I have to comment, especially if they're ranting and raving about something or someone :)

It is funny, kind of like someone being cocky or a smart ass, and not realizing there is a snotty booger hanging out of their nose.

Usually the ones that get on here just to bash someone else, yes, that's the extent of their education!
