I have never understood why people who want to be writers can't be bothered to use the basic tools of their trade.

I consider all writing to be "serious work". But I guess you don't consider the forums serious enough.

I have no problem reading at all. I just find it ironic when anyone is talking about proper grammar and yet can't seem to use it. The point of writing is to communicate by means of the rules set up exactly for that communication - not to tell someone to turn on an app.

Most text to speech programs I know of (and I've looked at a few) allow you to use proper grammar. As far as that goes, how do you deal with people who have hearing problems? The whole point is, if you (or anyone else) want to communicate, and want to make sure it's understood, then proper grammar ensures that. Proper formatting (complete sentences, paragraphs) also betters the chance that people will read posts completely and not misunderstand or miss something completely.
