Disappointment with the grammar and spelling of some TA users

I've noticed that many of the forum discussions that TA has tweeted lately have contained glaring grammatical and spelling errors.  I find this disappointing and even personally embarrassing as it inevitably reflects not only on the original poster but on the forum as a whole and, by extension, the larger atheist community.  I know written communication isn't everything, and it certainly isn't a high priority among the public generally, but we should try to meet a higher standard.  Given the unlikelihood that individual posters will suddenly take more care when writing, I think the operators of the site's Twitter feed should consider not tweeting discussion titles with serious errors.

That's one poster's opinion, for whatever it's worth.

RE: "my excuse is that I am dyslexic"

And my excuse is that I am dysfunctional, but I've never let that stop me --

You wouldn't be Italian, by any chance?

Sorry, Lars - just American humor, I mean, who could possibly have a name like Lars Nielsen, and not be Irish?

Ha,Ha,Ha,Ha.

Nope I am not Irish I am Dane and I am proud :D 

Just my warped sense of humor, Lars, welcome to TA.

Start to doub if your mind is right :D

The jury is still out on that --

I speak:

Danish (Nativ) (Three different dialects)  

British English (Second)

German (Third)

And then a very, very small bit of the following:

Hebrew, Spanish, Japanese

And thanks ^_^

Wouldn't that be lysdexic, then?

Do not think so :) 

Lars, has anyone every told you that you are very literal-minded? You don't see that a dyslexic might spell/write/read/say "dyslexic" as "lysdexic"?

OR, and here's a thought Unseen - maybe you just don't know how to tell a joke --
