Are you saying that Dyslexic people are stupid
or that it the correct use of grammar is somehow linked to intelligence?
I haven't given up on the idea that speaking/typing correctly can have a significant effect or affect (hmm? lol) on how people share their beliefs. Do I expect it to change significantly? Not really.

Not much to say here except that I agree. The grammar mistakes I see on ATS shouldn't escape a 2nd grade classroom, but I see them everywhere.
I always felt embarrassed or ashamed if I used a word incorrectly. It means my audience might associate me with an uneducated or feeble-minded group.

I have horrible grammar I admit, it is mostly due to my own doing as I was never at school and when I was I just mucked around.
Would love to brush my english up but there are so many books out there I would not know where to start.
If anyone has any suggestions feel free to add them

Who cares, are you so st00pid that you can't figure out the meaning of a discussion unless it's in the Queen's tongue? Are you saying that Dyslexic people are stupid or that it the correct use of grammar is somehow linked to intelligence?

By the way, the English language whether written or spoken is one of the toughest languages to understand or use properly at times. English is very confusing and frustrating.
