Illiterate homonyms

I often read the news on AOL, after signing in to check my mail. The public comments that often follow the stories paint a pretty bleak picture of the thought processes of other readers. Unfortunately, there is often a lot of mindless hostility expressed.

And today there was some mindless spelling.

A story about Barry Bonds gave us these two comments:

1. "...strip Bonds of the Home run record and BAND him from Baseballs Hall of Fame for EVER !!!!!!!!!!!!"

2. "HE WAS BORN AND BREAD A BALLPLAYER."

No further comment should be necessary on my part.

I agree completely...This is, unfortunately, not limited to the beautiful Monterey Peninsula.  Given the anonymity of these type of comments, I can only surmise that many of these contributors are being protected by the Witless Protection Program...
