True of False; if a question is grammatically incorrect, then its important to correct the mistake and completely ignore the question?

If the question was about, for example, goldfish and if the question was clear despite grammatical errors, it would be pointless to offer suggested grammatical corrections. Members of Y!A come from a range of countries and cultural backgrounds and may not be familiar with the finer points of English grammar.
If the question is primarily about grammar or if matters relevant to grammar feature heavily in the question or if the grammar used in the question is sufficiently flawed as to make the question unclear, then it could be constructive to talk about the grammar.
I believe that answers your question without referring to any grammatical errors it may contain.

Get freaking real buddy the American English language of today is totally freaking grammatically incorrect full of all kinds of words that are totally made up in the last couple of months with spellings that bear no resemblance to correct grammar or correct punctuation learned overlook incorrect grammar and incorrect punctuation and listen to people be empathetic to what they're talking about forget the logistics and the legality of how fine the grammar is and how nice that they punctuate.
Forget the spelling learn how to interact with people and to overlook the many mistakes that you're going to find also realize that many people are using their cell phones to dictate to the page just like I'm doing right now you'll notice that there is no punctuation it seems to be a run-on sentence!
Perhaps in the near future cell phones will learn how to punctuate.

False...the inability to edit, spell check, or grammar check, invalidates the readers trust that the questioner is serious or even intelligent enough to warrant a reply.

It depends whether or not you can discern the intent of the question. Sometimes you just can't tell what it is they're on about.
