Keep one thing in mind. Not everyone one here uses English as a first language and this is what makes our language one of the hardest ones to learn. For those of us who's first language is English. Not all of us type from our pc on here. Smart phones do plenty of auto typing and change words as wer're not seeing the text lay down while looking at the key pads. There are plenty of times it will auto type the wrong word and we never even see it happen as we just keep typing along.
As far as a foreign language goes the first to come to mind is Aranticus. Some of his text has grammar, spelling, or punctuation errors. But I never think dude is stupid. I have no doubt that he's twice as smart as me even with his short comings in the English language and putting it to text. Again it's not his first language.

You learn to live with little mistakes, like 'They're/There/Their' so long as the majority of a person's typing is at least done using real words. The other one that makes me twitch some times is 'Two/Too/To'... Or 'You're/Your'. I catch myself getting lazy (drunk) occasionally, and screwing this stuff up myself... which is why I generally favor mic during quests. No typos when you're talking.
ETA: Just be glad I didn't slam a bunch of ellipses in there for good measure, too
