I use proper grammar, and I rarely make a spelling error, thanks to spell check and my own advanced literacy.
If you are concerned over peoples' poor grammar on the internet, then you haven't been here very long.

i have to 100% disagree... just because a OP or reply is spelt and punctuated like a paragraph from the oxford dictionary, does not mean it has more credence over a OP or reply that has poor spelling and punctuation.
imo that view can be quite short minded, and blatently SUPPORTING IGNORANCE, as if you cannot see past a misspelt word or poorly punctuated paragraph, you could well be denying fact!
remember , this is ATS .. DENY IGNORANCE!

Actually that would be cares. See the one of rule. Are you one of those people who cares about using correct grammar?
Remove the "of those people" and you will see what I mean. As in "are you one who cares"

If I have to make a big effort to guess what you mean with your vague, badly-worded sentences, why should I bother? I might get the meaning wrong because you have not successfully conveyed what you mean. More probably, I will assume that you haven't formulated your thoughts coherently to start with, and ignore everything you write.

I am readily receptive to redundant use of relevant reasoning.
Reversing the otherwise redacted rhetoric, rampant though it may be.
Reacted upon, rightfully and without reproach, resembling a righteousness without rhyme or reason.
