I don`t pay any attention to the grammar police. We aren`t typing historical documents that will be framed and hung on a wall in the nations capital for future generations to ooo and aahhh over,we are just posting short comments in an internet forum that will only be read by a couple dozen people,so there`s no need to put on your sunday going to church clothes just to sit on the porch drinking some beer on a friday night.
What boggles the mind is the complete failure of those in error to learn from their mistakes. In the OP's case, he is clearly doing it on purpose.
If I can't understand the first couple of sentences because the grammar is so bad, I move on to the next post. That poster doesn't want to be heard badly enough to use proper English.
I can usually tell when English isn't the native language. Obviously I make exceptions for that person.
What we have here is a deliberate failure to communicate. If you don't care about your grammar you probably don't care about anything else either. If you did you would respect yourself and make the effort to improve yourself. This isn't grade school anymore. Grow up.
If it didn't matter that much legal documents would be so easy to read wouldn't they. Look at those stupid emoticons to the right...What in gods name are they supposed to represent?
