Oh, I guess I misinterpreted your comment about joining the "ignore list." Either way, I'm abandoning this thread now, as too many people are complaining that it's off-topic. Signing off...

Well, I'd like to thank you for bringing this up. It's not too much to ask the posters on this (or any other) board to present themselves as intelligent educated adults.

Of course, everyone makes typos; so it's possible to mistype "too" as "to" or even "than" as "then". But if someone demonstrates that he/she doesn't know the difference between "too" and "to", between "than" and "then", between "your" and "you're", etc., then there's nothing wrong with just ignoring that person's posts and discounting his/her opinions.

There is plenty of well-written stuff to read, content that is written by smart people who have formed good habits. Life is too short to waste energy on people who are stupid or careless (or both).

So thanks again to Tom.
