Graduates - illiterate buffoons?

Judging by the quality of posts written by graduates on this site, I tend to agree with the premise that spelling and grammatical ability has plummeted in recent years, even amongst the *elite*.

Thoughts? Musings?

Considered they may be just typing errors and people are too lazy to check their spelling and grammar before submitting their highly important and critical post?

The worst culprits aren't always/usually the more junior members of the forum when you look at the content of the questions and points raised in posts. In general, it is fairly difficult to ascertain the age, sex, race, etc. of posters. Except for those individuals who are inclined to pre-judge people by those characterstics, I would say that most visitors to the forum are educated enough not to think twice about it.

Spelling and grammar can be poor - but is by no means a function of age.

Why do you hate young people so much?

This forum is becoming increasingly populated by a shower of undesirables, who criticise grammar and the like. Just because the site is called "Top Consultant" doesn't actually mean you have to be one to join in.

Nor does it make you one if you do.

You're obviously a student since you have time to post on internet message boards during work hours, musing away to yourself. So, what do you have against graduates? What went wrong? Are you bitter against the people who were smart enough to successfully complete their degrees and become graduates? Worried that you're going to flunk your finals? Don't worry - after all, no-one else gives a damn about your life so why should you?

I compleetally dissagree with you. Im a grad and fully abel 2 use eksellent speling, puncture asian and grammer. I'm not sir prized that supposedly *elite* manijment con sultans use langwich badally cos they are all so teknikal that they hav no idea how 2 use langwich proper lee.

On a serious note, "it's" is a contraction of "it is"! And there is no need to use a bloody apostrophe to mark the plural!!!

So the short answer to your question is yes.
