Why does it seem like some people on DDO not know the English language? I'm not including foreigners, because the answer to that is kind of obvious.

I'm serious, though. If you just scroll down the debates, you will see countless examples of how little people care for English on this site. I just want to know, is it like a problem with high school, or just people not caring?

Go vote on one of my debates. I'm not that smart, so it'll probably be an easy decision.

Like with most things that seem to show the younger generation's lack of knowledge/intelligence, I blame technology.
My work here is, finally, done.

For some people, it is possible that English is not their first language.

Well Shakespeare used vocabulary and syntax creatively. He even invented a few thousand words.

Perhaps the youth is exploring the art of brevity and minimalism.

Syntax is what rarely taught and learned but language is what we just start using by birth.
