    Amounts to laziness.  It's whatever the first word auto-fill picks out and not taking time to proofread before submitting.

    Cos We were daft. We came here looking for intelligent people and really most of them are not. I don't know how to use it yet or what its called. I think its something like Aquora? but the intelligent people help and post on there. Google it yahoo Answers gets bad reviews. Not much intelligence on here just sad bitter trolls with no life and no hobbies and jealousy so they have nothing better to do than troll others cos they are so bitter and twisted they want people as miserable as them. Suicide rates are rising. They have no hope they will just kill themselves.

      A question mark does the same job as a full-stop. If you read my question you'd know that it's not aimed at learners, only people whose first language is English.

    No, idea, but it shows their lack of education.

    That usually applies to Trump supporters, and well, given their low level of education,

    something they seem to take pride in, shouldn't surprise anyone. It's alarming though.

    If someone uses the wrong word, most people have the intelligence to interpret what they do actually mean, and it's not that important because it is just a website. It doesn't MATTER.

    English is not my main language , I dont bother me to be corrected because I know that my knowledge in English is very basic.

    I've seen that British English is more formal with respect to grammar, English in the USA is more informal and some words are abbreviated, I guess ....
