What is the sense in perfekt high-educated sentences, if most of the readers had to search most of the vocabulary in their dictionairies?

I appreciate the use of this tool! I only wish in some german forums, that their users also use tools like this / Oh boys, It's sometimes more a guess 'what is it? what could he have ment by these fractals of words?'
This really takes the fun out of reading the posts...
Sometimes it's spelling impaired -- but of course not always, sometimes its a crap keyboard with not-responding keys, sometimes its a fast-as-hell typer, faster than the keyboard reacts...

just my few words

i know some friends who type wayyy too fast that their words are practically gibberish. i'm also not a native-speaker, and also take no offense in what you said. but thanks for clarifying it. hopefully, a lot of people would be mindful about spelling their words correctly not solely for grammatical purposes, but also for the sake of those reading the posts.
