We shouldn't put down people who may be less able than ourselves in certain areas but I think this is more a testament to the state of the UK and it's education system in particular. Seriously - it's the 21st century and people can't spell two letter words like "of"??? This reminds me of some Victorian pauper's scribbling from back in the day when only the upper classes went to school, sometimes it seems we've stepped backwards by 200 years
I find it quite funny that 20-30 years ago, many people were of the opinion that with the advent of mobile phones and computers etc. etc., grammar was no longer particularly important, "people don't write letters any more" they'd say. Kind of ironic that with text messages, emails, eBay listings etc., it's actually probably more important than ever!
