    I don't think it's just on Yahoo!, but across the country the schools are no longer teaching the children and the kids are just not learning.

    I mean using calculators in math class?? When I was in school that was unheard of. I really think home schooling is the way to go then you are in charge of studies and curriculum.

    But here on Yahoo! as stated most of the miss spellings are to be cool or because they're to lazy to use the spell check. Too bad there's not a grammar check.

    A better question is, "Why are most people poorly educated in the United States of America?" The literacy rate and basic math skills in America are falling. The gap between the educated and the uneducated is increasing. The division of labor is changing too. The number of skilled jobs is down. The number of unskilled jobs and service jobs is way up. The rest are white collar type jobs. We need to get back to the basics, the three R's.

    Some may be illiterate, but I suspect most are just lazy or think spelling like they are 'from da hood' makes them seem 'cool'.

    What do you expect from people who think 'pimp' is a good thing?

    I don't think that they are illiterate, they may be sloppy with their grammar, and they are too lazy to do things right.

    They can read and write(the most) so they can't be illiterate..political naive? maybe!

    Maybe they are in a hurry, or they don't pay much attention when they type...
