Typing or texting?

I don't mean to be too critical, but is it just me and about three other people that use capitalization, punctuation, and some semblance of sentence structure when posting? Even thread titles aren't routinely capitalized. Is everyone on the forum using a phone and texting their posts? Or is it just that the level of today's schooling is so low that people in general have incredibly poor communicative skills?

Doesn't anyone realize that it's going to be awfully hard to obtain a high paying professional job or career when you can't communicate in standard written form?

Most people really don't give a shit. I normally don't care, but I find it most annoying when people are asking for help with something and are trying to describe their problem. How the hell is anyone supposed to help if we don't understand what the hell you're talking about....knaw meeen!!!! lololol!

Well Dog, I don't have to know how to write well. I just need to know how to shot a gun. But it's a car fourm. I don't think my 5th grade teacher is going to be getting on here and telling what I did wrong. But that's just me.

I have learned to deal with the poor grammar and spelling on forums. If it is so bad that I have to thing about what the person is trying to say I quit reading it.
