We all have seen the posts going around FaceBook with the first couple letters in each word in place, the rest of the letters are a jumble. Most people are able to read those crazy posts. Most of people can even read a similar post with the letters upside down.

if i have a hard time understanding what someone has written due to how it was written or trying to decypher the misspelled words, generally, i am not going to take time to respond to their post, much less try and correct their problems.

if they did't feel the need to put some effort into writing a post with at least some thought into making it readable, then i see no need on my part to put in an effort to try and read it.

I can read a post with spelling errors but I find it very difficult to read a post with no punctuation. You know the type of post. One loooooong sentence with no stops Caps are nice when needed but also not necessary for understanding the post.

You can't be certain, what with the NSA reading all of our secret interweb communications. There could very well be a scorecard on each of us that reads "poor speller; dreadful grammar".

Maybe the NSA will start keeping a scorecard on politicians...corrupt, crooked, owned by corporate America, owned by organized crime and so on.

Don't kid yourself. They are way too busy masturbating to child porn to grade our writing.
