I am amazed at the low quality writing skills of the average newsgroup
member. People are incapable of writing complete accurate sentences. Their
grammar is poor, and their spelling is just plain horrible. Punctuation and
syntax are second thoughts. Chatroomese seems to dominate, with no rules

They are compound ignorant; so ignorant that they don't know they're
We get in all sorts of discussions about our labor being sent overseas, and

If you're tired of our country being overrun by illegal aliens, and our jobs
being sent overseas to people who can do them, stop accepting less than
acceptable behavior. Words mean things, and when a person is incapable of
at least communicating effectively, they are worthless in the job market.
They come across as immature uneducated juveniles, which is exactly what

show they can't even pay attention in English class?
