I have near-perfect spelling and grammar myself, and I have no problem understanding posts that are MUCH worse than the one I made earlier in this thread.

Quit *****ing about other peoples' spelling and grammar when you can still understand what they're trying to say. It's not THAT important, and it's just plain rude to do so.
While I would agree that it does come off as elitist, most browsers come with a spell checker. You can spell a word wrong, and it gets underlined in red. You just have to right click it and click the word in a menu to spell it right. You don't even have to know how to spell anymore.
