Okay, I probably should not post this, but I'm laughing so hard, I just have to share. I got this posted as a comment on my blog today:
hey you are so nice to help thoes peple kides who dont want to take care of there kides but they sit up there and have SEX and run in stree but cant take care of them!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was posted in the comments section under my review of a spelling curriculum. By a person who can't spell!
I love irony.
For those of you who don't know, in the cyberworld, this sort of person is called a "troll". They post something anonymously, hoping to stir up trouble. This hasn't stirred up any problems for me because I find it validates my decision to homeschool (unless of course "Anonymous" is a homeschooler, in which case I need to report them to the authorities because they clearly are not doing school work).
Even my nine year old third grader can spell "those", "people", "kids", and "street". I'd like to give "Anonymous" the benefit of a doubt and think that maybe those are typos, but "kids" is spelled wrong twice. My third grader also knows to put apostrophes in conjunctions, and that all sentences start with a capital letter. She also knows the difference between "there" and "their".
I don't have any idea what "Anonymous" is talking about as I don't believe I've posted anything about people who have "SEX" and let their kids run in the street. That would have been a heck of a post, wouldn't it?
Sorry, I'm giggling again.
I can only assume "Anonymous" is a first grader whose parents are letting him/her surf the Internet unsupervised. In which case they might as well be letting him/her play in the street - it's just as dangerous.
