    Why are people that cannot spell or speak correctly allowed to do so?

    This is not a thread bashing other languages.. I understand the point that for some people English is not the primary language.

    For Christ's sake though, if you are an American and you can not or will not speak properly then do not speak. I understand internet laziness and even computer illiteracy, but if you can't spell the whole word out because the extra three characters would blow your ****ing mind all over your wall, at least use the correct internet slang word in place of it.

    I think leaving the u out of colour and the myriad of other spelling differences between American English and English fall more to being taught one way or the other. Cultural differences do not bother me. Ignorance however, is an entirely different beast.

    It's not the spelling that gets me as much as the people who live here and speak their language. I agree with you totally!
