How do you judge online comments?

In a Slice post today, Paul Turner provides this multiple-choice question re: "Do you judge online comments on the basis of grammar and spelling?" You choices:

A) I do if I disagree with the commenter and it's clear he or she has limited language skills. B) No, I have become inured to people writing "your" when they intend "you're." C) No. Some people just type too fast for their own good. D) Yes. I'm an accomplished practitioner of disdain. E) Not really. I judge them for countless other reasons. F) I do not read online comments. G) Other.
