    Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht frist and lsat ltteer is at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by itslef but the wrod as a wlohe.

    I don't care what they say, proper english is good to follow, in all matters of communication. And, it does matter if the letters are scrambled.

    How would you decipher words such as Theyre, There, Their? You would have to piece the letters together to get the right one, :)

    the context they are used in should be a dead giveaway.

    I still like to read proper spelling. I don't care if I can still read some crazy word scramble.

    occasionally mispelled words are okay, but all and all spelling is the way to go.

    That's true Fats.
    But, it's still fun to fart around from time to time. :)

    I think proper grammar should be used at all times.
