I have to agree with this.

Not everyone was given a good education when it comes to grammar and punctuation. I'd say that elementary and high school english classes really only offer extremely basic grammar and punctuation usage and they mostly grade students on their ability to read a book and regurgitate its contents. Serious attention to grammar and punctuation didn't seem to come around until university. What you probably were never taught about grammar and punctuation could fill a book. Literally.

Some people are just lazy or they are typing the way they speak so making the distinction between they're, their, and there is irrelevant, but some people are trying their best. So please keep them in mind.
