My guess is about 17%. Anyone guessing higher than that is pushing their luck.

Examine the titles of the threads on the front page, for example.

It's so very sad. 17%.

I let it slide if it's a foreigner. At least they're trying and they know more English than most Americans.

I guess people don't understand what the red squiggly lines are 1dunno1

Very low. What gets me is how many times people spell their insults incorrectly, as they call others stupid.

I do let non-US'ers slide (not Canucks though.)

It makes me cringe - the "their" they're" "there" especially.

Almost all contractions are bastardized.

This thread has been done, killed, buried, dug up, cremated, stabbed, shot,and fucked up the arse by a guy named Bubba. Get over the spelling and read, without judgment, what they have to say. Even then, on this site, it can be, not what they say but the response they illicit. Everyone has a right to speak and be heard regardless of education, upbringing, environment or genetics. Stop being a self righteous prick and come up with a crappy Doom like the rest of us.

If I knew I couldn't spell well, I'd have the decency to use the spell check utility.

It's like someone scratching their nails along a chalk board for my psyche, all this butchered writing.

Re: What percentage of people who post here actually know how to spell?
I am amazed at the number of people who do not know the difference between "lose" and "loose".

Or martial and marshal.

Or to and too. (Not to mention "two")

And they are supposedly native speakers.

Another good one is "would of", when "would have" would be correct.

I be just like DANG YO!!

I used to work in an HR capacity and it was my job to screen resumes before sending the good ones to the hiring manager(s). You would not believe the misspellings I encountered, it's like some people didn't even try.
