Truly, in most situations, I'll let every grammar issue pass except one: Using "lol" as punctuation (i.e. "How are you guys lol"). That always throws me for a loop because I get a mental picutre of them literally laughing out loud after every sentence.

"Hi, how are you guys, HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!! I'm good AHAHAHAHAHA!"

Just freaks me out.

I see MAYBE 1/5 forum posters get it right at least once.
"Rogue" and "Rouge".

Although, it is quite easy to make fun of such a person who chooses a screen name such as, "The Deadly Rouge". :p

This is of course another issue, as English is now just a term rather than an exact language, even us english don't use genuine english much anymore, because its old an rubbish booyah.

The colour of the armour etc.... it's right where I'm from.

Good english and grammer is a good thing. Just don't be a d*** about it to those who are't completely right about it.

Yeah I read about that study, 55 out of 100 people can read a word perfectly fine if the first and last letter are in the right place and any jumble of the correct letters are between them.

ie to more than half of us the company **** can go stick it

i understood every word of this with no problems, but then i am in the minority that can read backwards and/or upside down with little problem or slow down so it isn't too surprising.

My pet peeve on forum spelling: the use "then" when one should be using "than"... *shudders with rage*

The number of times I read "this is more then enough" when it should be rightly "this is more than enough", makes me foam with rabid linguistic indignation and call down imperications upon the offender.
