You're taking this whole poll thing waaaay too seriously. Next, you'll complain it's not scientific.

(For the record, I don't care for the polls, so I simply don't vote for them. That doesn't mean I whine about the things I don't like about 'em - I just change the channel and move on. Obviously, I read the replies once in a while, especially when I don't remember that the thread is a poll instead of a SoPW or Meditation.)

    Basic spelling, grammar, and logic are the minimum requirements for proper social interaction: it's rude to force other people to guess at your meaning, to be deliberately unclear, or to speak or reason incorrectly; it suggest that you don't care enough about your peers to spend the time to do it right.

    I don't know what's happening to people's manners and morals, but it isn't good.

      Shouldn't that say "spend the time to do it correctly"? It should, at least, use the adverb rather than adjective form of the word, even if you are intent upon confusing morality with grammatical precision (as, it appears, you are).
