I have found that so many people will publish articles without reading over them first for errors. Or maybe they just don't care. Why is it that most people now have no regard for proper grammar? They don't know how to use it and they don't care enough to learn...

True. I guess saying "most" was a little irrational. It just seems to be that way sometimes.
That's a good way of looking at it. I can't follow someone's paper with a whole bunch of grammatical error. You could have an amazing point, but if you don't sound intelligent in the way you present it, people will overlook it.
Very cogent. I envy your knowing five languages. I wish I knew two! But for the three I can use fairly well or often, I understand what confusing them is like. Great answer!
That's a good point! I guess what some people view as important, others don't. My only argument is that if you're writing for the world to see, make it acceptable. It only looks bad on you.
p.s. I actually use to build houses with my Dad!!
i understand what you're saying but my point is that some people haven't been able to get a good education but they have amazing things to say. i would never hold bad grammar against them.
