Sometimes, I write poorly. I misspell some words, leave out others, and overall my posts become an unintellgible maelstrom of mixed metaphors, typos, and broken grammatical rules. At least I try my best to put my words into sentences. Punctuation, capitalization, and an overall sense of communication through words are important to me. Am I being too harsh to expect other people to give the same effort? I'm not ranting about they're/their/there or you're/your, but the increasing laziness I see on a daily basis when it comes to trying to write messages on the Internet. I don't expect perfection, and I am willing to grant leniency to those who are learning English as a second language, but for everyone else at least TRY to write as though you have had a sixth grade education.
