Why do you think the quality of English is so bad these days, especially on the Internet?

Edit:
I'm not asking about colloquialisms, meaning the way people speak locally, or acronyms here, I'm talking about people using 'than' instead of 'then' and things like that. Even newspapers nowadays are full of errors.

Is it because the majority of people don't care? Is it because teachers in general suck at teaching English?

I don't think it's a bad thing, really, I just think it would be interesting to know how things have evolved to where they are now.

It's more convenient to ignore proper grammar in favour of 1337-speak.

If every written speech was formal.. it would be boring. Now with alot of slang terms it seems you are talking to the person so to say lol

because it takes too much time to form a correct sentence in an age where kids are used to computers correcting most of their errors for them. besides, as long as you can get your point across, it doesn't really matter what kind of grammar you have on the internet. no one really cares

It's not only english, it's every language in the world, and it's not called bad grammar, it's called evolution.

Because,
A. we are all uneducated paedophiles sitting in our mother's basement, preying on children
B. we are too fat, thus our fingers can't handle the tiny keyboards
C. we are possessed by the evil demon called "dyslexia"
D. we are dumb
E. we are uneducated and dumb
F. we are just uneducated
G. we are emo, and so we cut our wrists, and now it f*cking hurts to type correctly
H. etc.
