Irregardless, it's a mute point. These sorts of mistakes run the gambit from compleat missentnces up to simple misspelings but I could care less about them.

Apparently, younger internet users are also more likely to react to poor punctuation before reading the entire sentence.

The one that makes me cringe is "with regards to" rather than "in regard to." As in "With regards to the accused serial killer..."

Of course the younger ones are more likely to judge spelling and grammer. They have not yet experienced years of berating and name-calling resulting from caring about sentence structure, spelling, and at least a modicum of intelligence.

Give them a few years and they'll be forced to degrade to our low level of idiocy.
