    Because grammar is spelled as such.

    People's is spelled as such.

    Versus is spelled as such.

    Their is spelled as such.

    For some people, such as myself, a misspelled word or phrase simply bugs me. I can't get past the errors to answer the question. I'm not sure sometimes, if the person on the other end will understand what I answer if all the words are spelled correctly.

    "Check Spelling", a feature offered here at no charge is quite useful.

    Other than that, I am obliged to answer anyone's question.

    For my part, when I see a simply misspelling, generally I ignore it. Anyone can make a typo. But when I see a question that is just littered with spelling and grammatical mistakes, I feel offended. I feel that if I am going to take the time to try to help an asker solve a problem or learn something, the asker can at least have the common courtesy to communicate effectively. Generally, excessive mistakes just mean laziness. I have no patience for people who are lazy enough to allow themselves to appear ignorant.

  • Because bad spelling/grammer can make it hard to understand a question.

    It should have been: "Why is it that people insist on commenting on people's spelling and grammar verses answering their question?"

    Sorry, I couldn't resist. I think that people are just trying to help. Plus, it's fun. :)

    I have always wondered that as well.

    People on Y! Answers always find the need to criticize those that may use poor grammar or make a spelling error.

    I think it is largely unnecessary, but many people on here do it.

    would not look unique, i might paintings on making it your individual with the aid of employing extra adjectives- quite attempt to strengthen your characters and plot with stepped forward descriptions. How does your face sense whilst that is pressed against his chest? only asserting it is not sufficient to make this better than an frequent tale.
