Yes, but here's the thing: I hear and read more complaints from people who feel that grammar, spelling, and improper use of the language should NOT be criticized, but why shouldn't it?? Why should we allow errors and laziness? People SHOULD be called out on it and in some cases, they should be made to correct their errors. The problem will only get worse if we continue to allow it to occur. I point my kids' errors out to them every time I find them and I encourage them to figure out the correction on their own. When they do, they are praised with a smooch on their smart little beans.
Duckinnut, in your second paragraph, there is a very common spelling error. If you meant it to be there to make a point (such as you did in your first paragraph), then okay, point taken. If not, well then, I've called you out on it and I mean it in the gentlest and kindest of ways and I hope you don't get defensive. I'm only practicing what I preach.
