Why do some people on here try to tell me I "know" what they mean when I obviously don't?

Instead of rephrasing their postings in a more grammatically correct way so that others can understand, they try to tell me that I knew all along what they meant and they even have the cheek to accuse me of being an ass about it. What's all that about? Wouldn't it be simpler to make their postings correct right from the start?

they're more concerned with product, not process... the product being getting their thought conveyed. The process by which it's done (i.e. proper grammar etc) isn't as important for them.

[@327737,Salix75] Well, it's 100% important to me. If they want to get their thought conveyed, how can they expect me to take it seriously if they don't do it correctly?
They suffer with 'word rage'!

[@669203,EugenieLaBorgia] How could they? Correct English is one of the most beautiful things in the world. Incorrect English is one of the ugliest. How come they don't notice that?
[@670089,KebleBollyJocksford] Syllables, for some, are a phonetic disease, twisting their tongues and subduing their ease!

[@669203,EugenieLaBorgia] Nice rhyme, Eugenie, but it still doesn't explain what makes them that way.
