We all make some of those just by typing too fast and knowing we're not getting graded so we don't read before we post up.
The people who make those mistakes because they were typing too fast and did not pay attention to what they were writing belong to a small group in my opinion. Some folks really are just that "stupid" when it comes to the English language.
My three biggest pet peeves are people who suck at spelling, people who suck at grammar and those who suck in both categories simultaneously. There is no excuse to suck at grammar or spelling considering the technology we have today.
On a side note, I think that college professors should award an automatic F to anyone who turns in a paper with a misspelled word.
