It took five instances in ONE DAY of seeing 'alot' in posts on the Internet. I had officially had enough of bad spelling and grammar that seems to replicate with the alien-like speed. This blog is my attempt to halt its progress! Feel free to submit any doozies you come across.

Lost in translation

This was a comment on an article about a toddler climbing a rock wall.  It started out okay, but disintegrated into meaningless strings of words a third of the way through.

I'm really not sure if the poster is pro toddler-climbing or against, or whether the choice of footwear is crucial in that decision, or if she just got distracted by little itty city (sic) shiny things.  So even though this post is titled 'Lost in translation,' I actually couldn't translate it!  Do you think it is even English?  Perhaps a new Pidgin form of Net-ese?  Maybe I'm thinking it through a little too much and it's simply just BARELY LITERATE.
