Overly grammar KILLing

I’ve been noticing a lot of stupid grammatical vomit lately. On signs.

How are people trying to learn English supposed to learn it when ‘lesser’ can be used in place of ‘fewer,’ when people put things in quotes instead of underlining to provide emphasis (a tattoo place advertised their “LOW” prices), and affect and effect are used interchangeably?!

Too.  Much.  Democracy.
