How to keep the grammatically challenged off the Internet.

If the atrocious illiteracy of the average Internet commenter has ever driven you to anger, frustration, or violent homicidal thoughts, you’ll love this series of Internet CAPTCHAs, created by Matthew Baldwin. By requiring you to discern from various sets of simple but somehow commonly mistaken words just to be allowed online, these CAPTCHAs would rapidly rid the web of phrases like “Your an idiot” and “I’m definately getting Nickelback tickets.” We dream of a day when this Internet entrance exam is mandatory, creating a grammatically sound, idiot-free online experience for the four of us who actually pass it. Below are several of the other word options you might encounter when taking it, followed by the screen that greets you if you fail.
