I would assume that evolution would be the advancement of human kind. Not that it would be the reason why this generation is getting dumber >.>

I wouldn't say that everyone has poor grammar.
I believe that people neglect it because it's just faster to type without it.
I'll admit I'm guilty of it sometimes.

I blame texting/im-ing

Lazy or stupid people? Or those who do it to reply fast to a comment, like I used to in '09. I've gotten better with typing so, I don't need to txt talk anymore. It's definitely not needed when you're making a discussion within the forums or a chat room in my opinion. =T

I guess they are too lazy to bother with the intricacies and just wish to get things typed as soon as possible. Even though this sometimes leads to much confusion in some cases. There's a limit to how many mistakes you can make before the sentence becomes unrecognizably mangled and you need to type it again. Some do not realize this....

as long as i understand what they're saying. not all of the countries can speak english fluently. *i cant too*

they are trying to share their thoughts. even though their grammars are bad, at least they shared.

It's a combination of laziness, pure stupidity, and beginning to rely on technology to do everything for us.
If it keeps up this way the english language will be lost and turned into a mixture of bad spelling and grammar.
After all that was how most languages got started in the first place. Use of slang and variations of other things to create a whole new way of speaking and writing. It's not so bad if you think of it as a new language but I still blame Shitty school systems like in the state of California.

My grammar is good except when I'm on the internet because people generally don't care.
