Irregardless of the fact that those signs literally run the gambit from stupid to clever, it's a mute point.

Do not use "begs the question" to mean "suggests the question".

Do not use "a myriad of X". Myriad means "a lot/variety of", so use "myriad X".

Spelling and grammar rules mutate over time, naturally responding to new forms of communication. I fully expect English to become much more concise in the future.

Misspelling is not a grammar problem.

Nor, technically, are poor punctuation.

Grammar refers to word order, tense, and sentence structure.

Good grammar improves not just readability, but reduces the ambiguity in writing.

for example:

WRONG: A preposition is a bad thing to end a sentence with.
RIGHT: One should not end a sentence with a preposition.
MORE RIGHT: Do not end sentences with a preposition.

Turns out that English is not a set language and any grammar or spelling rule can be changed if enough people disagree.

Make a distinction between "less" and "fewer".
Use "of" with "enamored" if you must use "enamored". But don't use it.
Use the Oxford  comma.

I punctuate with quotation marks the way a computer programmer would.  YMMV.  It's difficult to break the habit.

My favorite spelling wowzer was in a newspaper restaurant review that used the phrase "toe headed boy".

There's a place near me whose sign says only "SPORTS BAR AND GIRL".  Not sure if it's a typo or not.

Let's step out for a bite at Translate Server Error.  Really, though, I can't blame a person for trying to figure out a foreign language.  I got to the point I could read Korean (very poorly) and speak only marginally better.  But I made an effort and and I applaud anyone who does.

You are quite right. This is the sort of thing, up with which, we shall not put.
