I take the opposite view because if big brother as you say had infiltrated this site then I would assume their grammar would be impeccable as those in
government - loath them or not - are not fools as the highly educated and highly intelligent tend to work in government.
Also I do not think It would serve them well to try and bring down a site such as this by flooding it with bad spellers and the grammatically (sic?)
lacking because if they were to succeed then would the members not simply disperse to a new site or group of sites and the hard work of the
infiltrator would have been made much more difficult as the operation would need to restart. The new sites would already be shining out like a cyber
beacon into the web and suddenly be much more suspicious?
The grammatical errors that you have mentioned indicates to me more that younger members habitually firing from the hip have joined rather than that a
new campaign by a government is afoot to make us here look like a bunch of yammering nimrods.
I do not think ATS has changed that much by the way as I have lurked here for a very long time and the changes I have seen are that members come and
go and sometimes grammar takes a dive or a rise but in the end it is the message in the text not the spelling that matters to me.
That said perhaps I am biased and do not noticed in depth what you have noticed?
