Why are there strange topics coming on this forum with very bad spelling/grammar?

There seem to be a bunch of threads on this forum by people who have never posted before or have just posted once or twice.  Many of these posts describe strange things happening, but it is hard to figure out due to very bad spelling/grammar that is typical of phishing emails.  Are these legit problems or are people spam-posting to get counts up?

    Hey @wayner, hard to tell on the legit thing. We have seen there are real issues people experience, especially as a bit of the world has been in lockdown and more folks on the "net" than ever before.  

    Also, many of these threads are from non native English speaking folks and I imagine some of the odd spelling could be a by product of whatever translation app they are using.  As for spam, yup we get them and the mods and the system take care of it as it pops up.
