Bad IQ Tests
As a general rule, it's a bad idea to judge someone's intelligence based on grammar and spelling mistakes on a Facebook page. Or in the comments section of a website. People just don't treat those forums the same way they do formal writing situations like letters or essays. And they shouldn't treat them the same way; life's too short.
In fact, I think making a big deal out of silly writing mistakes in comment sections says more about the intelligence of the person pointing out the errors than it does the error maker. Just calm down, OK?
